America should legislate a 'moment of silence' for Rodney King on the day that he was brutally beaten. And, the moment of silence should be -one minute for every hit he endured.

Reporting that, "Mr. King's fiance is stating that, "he was drinking all day Saturday and smoking marijuana." What if the reporter said, "Rodney King, who endured a violence that black americans have been subjected to, for centuries. We are, forever, indebted to him."

Sony Film Classics' 2009’s Indie Sugar is not your average sports flick; it avoids the usual for the love of the game and the glorious champion cliché’s so common among this genre.
