5 must watch movies about racism

Lifestyle

Following the unnecessary death of George Floyd, another unarmed black man, it’s no longer acceptable to stay silent. Really, it should have never been acceptable. As a minority myself, I’ve dealt with racism & discrimination on many levels but will never feel it the same as a black person. Those are just facts.

I’ve always done my best to stay educated, but to be honest, I’m still learning. The important part is to not stay ignorant about these issues and know that systematic oppression exists and it needs to change.

If you’re trying to learn, here are 5 movies that showcase racism, police brutality, an in just criminal system & discrimination in America. They are all amazing films, at times hard to watch, but you must do what makes you uncomfortable in order to make change reality. And also, if you find these films uncomfortable and see treatment you wouldn’t want done to you or your loved ones, you should be fighting for everyone.

Just Mercy

After graduating from Harvard, Bryan Stevenson heads to Alabama to defend those wrongly condemned or those not afforded proper representation. One of his first cases is that of Walter McMillian, who is sentenced to die in 1987 for the murder of an 18-year-old girl, despite evidence proving his innocence. In the years that follow, Stevenson encounters racism and legal and political maneuverings as he tirelessly fights for McMillian’s life.

When They See Us

In 1989 a jogger was assaulted and raped in New York’s Central Park, and five young people were subsequently charged with the crime. The quintet, labeled the Central Park Five, maintained its innocence and spent years fighting the convictions, hoping to be exonerated. This limited series spans a quarter of a century, from when the teens are first questioned about the incident in the spring of 1989, going through their exoneration in 2002 and ultimately the settlement reached with the city of New York in 2014.

The Hate U Give

Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds — the poor, mostly black neighborhood where she lives and the wealthy, mostly white prep school that she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is soon shattered when she witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend at the hands of a police officer. Facing pressure from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and decide to stand up for what’s right.
