Boyz 'N The Hood - Meghan Frank
The black police officer in Boyz 'N The Hood represents the self hatred Kenneth Chan writes about in his article. The officer sees Tre and all the others in "the hood" as what is wrong with their race. They personify the problems of all black people and the officer is taking his rage out on them. By saying that Furious should have killed the burglar because there would be "one less nigger on the street" he is vocalizing his anger with himself.
By contrast Furious calls the police officer "brother" to say that they have to stick together and not turn on each other if they want to better themselves. Furious is proud of being black and knows that the only way to survive is to rise above the negative and not get sucked into the continuous cycle of hatred and violence.
