In the scene where that happens, which is simultaneously the film's most awkward and most revealing moment, Sunday explains that he doesn't hate blacks simply because he's an evil bastard. No, it's a result of economic competition between poor whites and poor blacks in the rural South: "Your daddy could farm cheaper than mine!" Sunday bellows tearfully to the man he hauled out of bed in his underwear to brutalize. OK, a character might think this, or even say it out loud to a friend (although I'm not convinced about that). But from the first encounter between Brashear and Sunday, their relationship is excessively intimate. "Men of Honor" is the all-male version of those movies in which the couple start out spitting fire at each other and end up as lovers.
