Shame can alienate a person more making them less compassionate and more defensive.Here are a few movies that made me feel less racist. They struck me with the individuality of the personalities and the similarities to familiar lifestyles. Even if they didn't make me less racist, they made me feel better and made me feel more connected to humanity. That's pretty good stuff!
Crips And Bloods Made in Americathis is a documentary about gangs and riots and police repression. It's about the simplicity of people trying to make a tolerable world for themselves. It's not too rough. Feels a little biased, but it's very nicely presented.
Do The Right ThingI like Spike Lee a lot. This movie is beautiful to me in its storytelling and cinematic magic. It shows Spike's caricaturized impression of black New Yorkers in their neighborhood cage. It shows race and human issues from a young, testosterone-rich, progress-hungry scope.
Black Power MixtapeThis wasn't what I thought it would be. Recorded by Swedes, this is a laid-back collection of beautiful archival footage and voices of then and now. It's the story of the Black Panthers and stuff from a foreigner seeking an accurate depiction of America.
Hoop DreamsA brilliant documentary about two boys growing up in Philadelphia. All the struggle of them going from street ball to the pros and how difficult it is for them to sacrifice so much for a chance.
