In a world where white is considered of the ‘norm’ and everything outside of that dominion is different – society needs eye/mind openers such as shows like this which gives face to the insides of the multi-faceted truths of black people.

 

* Racism is an ugly truth that will forever be a factor in this world as long as white people continue to feel and force their supremacist terrorism on any persons who are not of their group.

Chi-Raq

Message – In theaters now!

The Black Struggle – Black Lives Matter – Black Women – Black Men

I have not yet seen the movie, but some natives of Chicago, IL are not big fans of this film. As stated in the Chicago Tribune:

“So after all of the fighting, name-calling and political wrangling over the film’s title, “Chi-Raq” fails to illuminate the lives of the many Chicagoans who go to bed with the sound of gunfire outside their windows and wake up to the news of yet another murder. While critics have hailed the satirical film as a victory for Lee, Chicagoans go home empty-handed”.

Me personally, I think all the cast for this film should have came directly from Chicago. I remember the casting calls for Straight Outta Compton – the casting calls were done in Gardena, Compton – areas where real blacks in the struggle, who knew first hand resided. Unfortunately, this film seems to have a lot of big Hollywood names.

But, I commend Spike Lee for shedding light on an issue black communities across the United States deal with on a daily – gun violence.
