Response to Proud liberal 80 (Original post)

14. I think it should be taught in a class dealing with film's reinforcement of racist ideology in this

country. The racist memes should be listed, shown in actual scenes from the movie, and taught as examples. In that way, it will be a teaching tool that helps students understand how Hollywood reinforced racism and continued discrimination against African Americans. It should be regarded as a cultural "monument" to racism.
