Mad Mel and the Maya by Earl Shorris

To grasp what a racist act Gibson has committed in the making of his new film [Apocalypto], it is necessary to understand the world of the Maya as it exists today. Perhaps realizing what has been done to the Maya in the film, Gibson has been seeking allies among Latinos and American Indians. He even went so far as to tell Time magazine, "The fear mongering we depict in this film reminds me a little of President Bush and his guys."
