An intense clip from Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing. I’m surprised that a vast majority of my students haven’t seen it (though that probably just shows my age). This might be a weird thing to ask, but could y’all—especially y’all still in school—like or comment if you think this should be on a syllabus? I want to find out whether or not it’s too dated. (But god help us, with the Eric Garner and Mike Brown cases—and so many others—it’s pretty fucking topical.)

I remember being eleven or twelve in the theater watching him scream as they walked away and thinking, “Oh my God, that’s horrifying.”
