The issue of racial discrimination and its effects on the individuals in the film crash by paul hagg

Particularly, African American, Hispanic, and Iranian races are portrayed. Even though there are white characters and they do commit acts of racism, their racist demeanors are almost justified due to personal struggles the characters are experiencing.

Because the acts of racism committed by the white characters are justified, the movie suggests that whites are not technically to blame for the issue of racism in an attempt to not offend the predominantly white audience.

Just copy and paste if you want to view them. Even so, Ryan Matt Dillonthe white racist cop, pulls the vehicle over regardless. During his investigation, he demands the couple to get out of the car.

He pats them both down; however, while patting down the woman, he molests her in front of her husband. The husband stands there helplessly. Even though the husband is a successful film producer, he is still a black male.

The husband feels helpless because even though he knows he cannot stop the cop because he would be accused of assaulting a police officer, he also must take into consideration his race and position within society.

For example, even though the white officer is committing a heinous crime, the husband could be in a substantial amount of trouble if he were to react in a vicious way, not only because he would be assaulting an officer, but also because he would be a black man assaulting a police officer. Because the husband is black and the officer is white and holds more authority in the situation, the officer could skew the situation at a disadvantage to the black husband.

It is important to note that the husband is even willing to risk his marriage due to his position in society. It is wrong to molest anyone; however, the husband is hesitant to intervene because his position in society is that of a back male.

It poses the question of who are you going to believe in this situation, a white police officer, or a black male? Also, this scene demonstrates how black males must consider their race and position within our society when dealing with authorities due to associations regarding black stereotypes.

Jean is upset because previous to the attack, Jean and her husband are walking to their car when Jean spots two black males. The car then gets stolen by the two black males. These scenes are very important because they do depict racism. Ryan is a white male who holds superiority due to his job as a cop.

For example, two black males play carjackers, an Iranian man plays a convenience store clerk, and a Hispanic man plays a locksmith, all middle to lower class occupations. The characters portrayed by other races almost fit into the white image of the world.

Of course the black males are criminals, of course the Iranian man is a store clerk, and of course the Hispanic is a locksmith. Even though the occupations of each race hold some truth, the stereotypes of these races are presented through a white perspective. An example of how white characters are justified for actions pertaining to racism is through the white, privileged character, Jean Bullock.

In a particular scene as discussed earlier, Bullock and her white husband played by Brandon Frasier are walking to their car on a crowded street.

Bullock notices two black males standing in a predominantly white area. At first, viewers witness an act of potential racism concerning the black race and the stereotypes that are associated with black males.

Another character that exemplifies this forgiveness of the white character is demonstrated through Ryan Dillonthe racist, white cop. Throughout the movie, Ryan Dillon commits many acts of racism; however, the viewer learns that Ryan Dillon is dealing with his sick and dying father.

The woman who was previously molested, gets into a car accident. The car catches fire and she is stuck underneath the car. The woman recognizes the cop and becomes hesitant and scared to let the cop help her. Finally, the woman grabs the cops hand and he pulls her out of the car, saving her life.

The scene then shows the two characters walking arm in arm away from the crash. The racist behaviors are made impossible to criticize due to the justifications presented.Crash is a movie about race and stereotypes and its effects on the various people living in the Los Angeles area.
