Color of Fear
This video was extremely interesting, and at times tense and even uncomfortable. I think that those moments especially highlight what a sensative subject race is.
While there were many interesting points and opinions brought up, I think the most interesting thing about to whole film was the white man (the non self proclaimed racisist). He was just absolutly clueless as to what really goes on in the world when it comes to race, and the issues surrounding it. I almost felt bad for him after a while because he just wasn't getting it, as much as all the other men were trying to get it through to him that race really is an issues, and that they really do encounter problems beause of it in their lives. I also thought it was interesting that the white man who did state that he was a racist, was the one that all the other ment turned to and asked him to help the other white guy really understand what was going on in the world concerning race. Which I guess is understandable because at least he knows that there are issues of race still in the world, because he has those issues himself.
I thought that the setting in which the film took place was very unique. It's not often that there is an area where such a diverse group of people are able to sit down and have a converstaion about such a sensative subject. I think that because of this they were all able to put their guard down for at least a while which allowed them all to open up and share exaclty what they were thinking and feeling.
The one isse that I noticed throughout the entire film was how they referred to each other. In the beginning, it was "Black" and "White", and then towards the end they were referring to each other as "coloreds" and using phrases such as "you people." Which is how they probably talked in real life, and after a while they all become comfortable enough with each other to slip back into their usual speech.
