The Hate U Give Passes {Part Two}

Starring Amandla Stenberg, Regina Hall, and Russel Hornsby, Starr Carter (Stenberg) is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer.  Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right. THE HATE U GIVE is based on the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Angie Thomas and stars Amandla Stenberg as Starr, with Russell Hornsby, Regina Hall, Issa Rae, KJ Apa, Algee Smith, Sabrina Carpenter, Common and Anthony Mackie.

I know this isn’t the best way to highlight public education. But, our school cafeteria locked from the inside so we used to lock students, staff, and security out all the time.  One time someone (not me) took it too far and started a big fight.  All in all, it still was a really good day and no one was seriously injured.

FILM REVIEW: ‘Stranger Fruit’ documentary reminds one of Antwon Rose shooting

While everybody was renewing their Starz subscription for the fifth season of “Power,” I was browsing through the new movies in my down time and stumbled across “Stranger Fruit.”

The documentary originally premiered at the 2017 SXSW film festival and received some backlash for never-before-seen footage of Mike Brown the day before his murder. So, filmmaker and director Jason Pollock did some more digging and released an extended version of the film in April. Starz picked it up in June.

And, now, we are here.

The most controversial part of the documentary was a key piece of evidence that the Ferguson, Missouri Police Department decided to bury. A surveillance video of Mike Brown the night before his murder showed him in the same convenience store where he was accused of a strong-arm robbery. The question begs: Why would Mike Brown, who seemed to have a working relationship with store staff, go in the very next day and “rob” the joint?

The video was never admitted into evidence or released to the public, further proving the modern-day cover up in the death of Michael Brown Jr.
