My op-ed in the Daily News today on the Breakfast at Tiffany's boycott campaign. I'm not in favor of it, though I think misguided is the wrong word (and too strong). My point is that the focus should be on framing the film and encouraging discussion around it—not from preventing it from being seen.

That said, the very fact that +Ursula Liang has done such a great job of getting the word out on the boycott campaign has done just that: Pushed people to talk about the very real, very appalling racism embedded in this "classic." My dream would be something like getting the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservatory guys to pay Beau Sia, Bao Phi, Kelly Zen-Yie Tsai and others to do a live, pre-film performance commenting on the larger issues surrouding the film...e.g., fight art with art.
