    Clint Eastwood has a particular outlook on minorities that is very confusing. Did you see him in Gran Torino, or that detective movie he has a black prostitute fling, not too rough baby? or he makes movies about the Pacific War with Japan, (From the Japanese Side! Perspective!), like he just shifts in and out effortlessly from any number of cultural background . Isn't he a Republican stalwart, everybody looks at him as a Republican? So weird.

    I was about to confuse him with old white conservative guys. Charlton Heston, Pry this gun from my cold dead hands, NRA!

    I get it...You're having trouble separating the man himself from the roles he has played in movies.

    I bet you think Jeff Bridges and John Goodman run around using the word "fuck" like a comma too, huh?

    But he did not direct script or produce the largest share of the movies he was in.

    Do you think that Sean Connery was actually a British spy and spent time in Alcatraz?

    Robin Williams wasn't really a gene who lived in a lamp.
