Today (Saturday, March 20), the movie Australia came on cable. (Hugh Jackman, Nicole Kidman- good flick, if you haven't watched yet, you should). At the beginning of the movie there's a scrolling few paragraphs that explain what the story is about- how mixed-race Aborigine children were taken from their families.
Apparently, DG hadn't read it all the way through before. I explained the one line: "Mixed race children were forcefully taken from their families and trained to be of service to white society" (or something like that, because I started laughing at DG). I said, "What I gather is that the Aborigines would have kept those children anyway."
DG said, "I'd have kept it. If I had a kid with a black lady, I'd keep it. I'd still be f*cked though." (I thought he was referring to getting laid) and he added, "I'd be- you know, the white people woulda given me The Shun." And he waved his hand in front of himself, sort of like Obi-Wan Kenobi in the "These are not the droids you are looking for" scene in Star Wars.
I said: "The Shun?"
DG: "Yeah, when a white guy gets with a black lady, white folks don't like it. I'd get The Shun." (and the hand motion).
As I was typing this, the scene with Hugh Jackman trying to get a drink in the pub with his black friend came on. Jackman is told by the bartender/owner that the black friend isn't welcome (and he was told in a very impolite manner). DG declared about Jackman's character: "See? He's gettin' The Shun."
AND, as I was typing up the above, DG stood up to get more coffee and declared: "The Shun... its the new word for today."
