A "review" for the film The Hate U Give made by Letterboxd user ScreeningNotes: ”It is impossible to be unarmed when our blackness is the weapon that they fear.” The police is a racist institution. White people have more social, political, and economic privilege than black people. That needs to change. If you think Blue Lives … Continue reading A response to a #BLM supporter.
Rated: 4 / 5 "A love story of today." Well, maybe not so much anymore. Or maybe it is. This film has surprising relevancy to today, and I personally find that to be a bit sad. So, in case you haven't ever seen this movie, which I suggest you do considering I've given it a … Continue reading Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner (1967) review
Rated: 3/5* * = with caveats, especially with dialogue that self-references the year. "Helloooo? This is 1967! I can do whatever I want!" Introduction ... ... ... Ok, so this movie.

I'm going to post the back-and-forth discussions I've been having. Because I've learned from experience that if I end up … Continue reading Discussions on Racism
Rated: 3/5 So "nigger" is an offensive word right? At least when white people use it? But why is that exactly? From what I've been taught, it has to do with the past, during the 1800s to the late 1900s (depending on which area of America you are at). A term used by white men … Continue reading Do the Right Thing review and discussion on racism
Rated: 3/5 I heard good things about this, being a horror movie and all. And I tend to be very skeptical of horror films, because most of them suck. As it turns out, this did nothing to surprise me in that regard, because I don't think of this as a horror film. It's a suspense/thriller, … Continue reading Get Out review
