Everyone should see this movie. Even if you're not American, and especially if you're white. All the reviews across the internet talking about it being "too violent" or "heavy-handed" are completely missing the point of this incredibly necessary film, and much worse, propping up white supremacy. As the main character Linc asks, "Why are (Black people) the only people in this country that are expected to do things without violence?" Watch this film, and show it to everyone you know.
