48806, I didn't think anyone 'redeemed' himself

I thought that the point was that everyone is conflicted and racial stereotyping is deeply ingrained by our culture. The film tracked a lot of reading I've been doing recently, particularly readings on white privilege in books like White Like Me, Critical Race Theory and other readings in privilege.

It may be true that the issues are dealt with in only a superficial way, but my perspective was that the fact that they were dealt with at all in a mainstream movie was a big step.
