When this film came out I was reminded of my second semester of 7th grade at Horace Mann junior high in Colorado Springs 50 years ago. Martin Luther King was recently asssasinated. I'm sitting in class, home room, when this kid behind me said "they shot that nigger dead". Having just come from Los Angeles and an integrated school I was sad and shocked to hear him say that. Lee's film does a spot-on job of showing how stupid and dangerous racists are in this country. I also realized, later, that racism is learned and not something we're born with. The current administration is supporting these groups in an active way and this worries me. By the way, the fros and clothes were a delight to see.
