Fight the Power
10 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

  • I think every generation has a film that touches on race and the


inequalities of color. Spike Lee, Do the Right Thing comes to mind as do other countless films. In Dear White People (a take off on a character's name that is White) it explores the state of college campus today. Where the halls are segregated and the division is along social economic lines and on the fringes of race. There is the commentary that Obama is half white, so that makes him half right, touches on the degrees of it means to be black today. Not all a series manner, but sometimes you do become the change you want to bring, but often it is much harder to live the talk than to talk the talk. I saw this movie as part of the 2014 Atlanta Film Festival.
