S’aimer c’est regarder ensemble dans la même direction, dit-on.

Mais cet amour est-il aussi beau quelle que soit cette direction ?

C’est la question qu’on peut se poser après avoir vu cette étonnante scène de lit dans BlackKklansman de Spike Lee. Felix Kendrickson, militant du Ku Klux Klan et sa femme Connie y parlent de la réalisation d’un attentat comme n’importe quel couple pourrait parler de la réalisation d’un vieux rêve commun.

Felix (Jasper Pääkkönen) et Connie (Ashlie Atkinson)

Connie — Honey.

Felix  — Mm-hmm?

— Do you ever have second thoughts?

— About what?

— Killing ’em.

— Never think twice about killing niggers.

— You won’t be able to take it back, though.

— They’re the first of many niggers that must die, honey bun.

— I know. It’s just becoming so real. I always thought it would be like a dream.

— I know. It’s just so beautiful. We’re cleansing this country of a backwards race of chimpanzees. First the spooks. Then the kikes. Free at last, free at last. Thank God Almighty, free of them niggers at last.

— I love it when you do that, honey. … We’ve talked about killing niggers for so many years, and now it’s really happening.

— My old man always told me good things come to those who wait.

— Thank you for bringing me into your life, for loving me like you do, for giving me a purpose, direction. This could be the new Boston Tea Party.
