Summary Black rebels: "'We don't want your kind around here....' When drug-dealing Buck kills the boyfriend of Lola Montalvo (West Side Story Oscar winner Rita Moreno) then pins the rap on her brother, Lola seeks revenge by pretending to love Buck -- moments after Buck's former girlfriend (Dyan Cannon!) tries to stick a switchblade in his back! All of which culminates in a race riot at the home of a high-school rich kid involving black, white, and Mexican gangs, undercover cops, Lola's poor ol' papa, and even a pool full of naked girls...."--Container.
Murder in Mississippi: "Voter registration leads to MURDER IN MISSISSIPPI when a 'cracker' Sheriff arrests white dilettante Carol Byrd and two other 'Communist Yankees' for 'agitating colored folks.' Though her friends are killed, Carol is kept alive as the personal sex slave of two white-trash cretins in this nasty lesson in racial intolerance..."--Container.
