Code Name: Geronimo shoot gets underway in New Mexico
By Jeremy Kay
Cam Gigandet, Robert Knepper, Anson Mount, Freddy Rodríguez, Xzibit and Kenneth Miller will play the special operatives who undertake the clandestine mission.
This is an excellent example of how the media perpetuates stereotypes. It doesn't matter that thousands of Indians protested the "Geronimo" codename. Or that military apologists tried (and failed) to justify it. What matters is the overriding message: Bin Laden = Geronimo. In other words, Indians = terrorists.
The news reports got the ball rolling. This movie will cement the message. For generations to come, people will associate Bin Laden with Geronimo. They'll continue to think of Indians as murderous savages who fought against freedom and democracy...just like the terrorists.
