No Spoliers , but I will say 2 things ;
I was shocked at how White Supremacy stereotypes, where thrust upfront as the start of the drama, and became somewhat the foundation, of the family in the pic !
1 The negligent Black Father stereotype , beats you over the head in the beginning of the movie and
2 the Self Defense Impotence of Middle Class Buppie Black men!

Maybe if he cast Michael Jai White , Michael B Jordan, or as the father the movie would have taken a dif course!

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
