As the old adage goes "Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it" and I'm a strong believer in that saying. In today's society where the importance of teaching history seems to be at an all time low I think it's even more important that films pick up of the slack of generating interest in learning about history. I'm not saying that films should be "teaching" history but perhaps they can act as the catalyst that will drive a child or even an adult to pick up a book and learn more about a historical subject they might have not have ever cared about previously. Racism and bigotry is an important issue in American history and telling the story of the first African American military aviators is still relevant today. Unfortunately, for Red Tails the story of the Tuskegee Airmen has already been told in a much better and less cringe inducing film surprisingly called The Tuskegee Airmen.
