a telling look into one young man's fears and self loathing
27 February 2003 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most powerful shorts in years dealing with racism and prejudice. Romo is a young man who is half-white, half-Pakistani who can pass as white and tries to. Why would he not with neo-nazi youths and the National Front spreading hatred everywhere in his neighborhood? When we see that his work mates are all skinheads and racists we can forgive him but when his mates encounter another Pakistani late at night and a violent hate crime is only stopped in the nick of time, his self loathing takes a rather more self destructive turn.
