Truth. I was arguing the fact on these other fora that there's no point in debating V's race/color/skin tone/epedermus hue/ skin pigment/sex/sexual preference or anything else because he was just a symbol, a personification of the rebellious attitude. FREEDOM! But then they said, "well yeah, obviously that's the point, but you can't not be curious." And my retort was, "well, no, clearly I am right because I used way bigger words."
Then I thought about the movie more and questioned the Larkhillness. But I thought they could have done better in the movie covering up his identity. I don't get why he had his gloves off when he was cooking the egg. If the butter splattered he could have burned his hands!!!
"Also V was definately white. A white OLD dude at that."
Why do you say that?
