Lee and Daniel tackle two proto-blaxploitation films this week. First off it's well-known shlockster Ted V. Mikels' "The Black Klansman" (1966) and then they look at a far more well-made effort in Ralph Nelson's "...Tick...Tick...Tick..." (1970). They learn about rural racists, more details about the internal politics of the KKK, whiteface doing blackface doing whiteface, double hairpieces, terribly inappropriate theme songs, and the exalted cyclops! Also, going into listener comments, they discover that they are hipster bores. What they've watched as of late is also covered.
