"But I really have to look for my old man."

"Not now. Later."

Without any context, that's some creepy shit. Option #1: the black kid's concerns take backseat to the white man's need for immediate entertainment. Option #2: the white devils are doing something to the kid's dad, and getting the kid to play the piano is just a distraction to keep him from interrupting.

I noticed that weird exchange, but I don't think race plays a role. The kid is in the movie for no other reason than his talent, and it's probably the only scene this film is remembered for. That's a good thing, right?
