The Color of Fear
Description: The Color of Fear is an insightful groundbreaking film about the state of race relations in America as seen through the eyes of eight North American men of Asian, European, Latino and African descent. In a series of intelligent, emotional and dramatic confrontations the men reveal the pain and scars that racism has caused them. What emerges is a deeper sense of understanding and trust. This is the dialogue most of us fear, but hope will happen sometime in our lifetime. (1995, 90 minutes)
Interesting….White guy has a Freudian slip around 8:27.
this movie is what caused my outburst in class cause soooo many people felt bad for David, the racist white man who kept referring to all the people of color as “colored” and “you people”. and they were like, oh the Black guy is being mean to him. i went off.
but this is a really great movie to watch and a good teaching tool. people of color talk about issues between each other and with white people. and it really needs to be seen by white people to see the pain your indifference to our difference causes us.
Watched this at the end of a class last semester. Half the class wanted to know why we didn’t watch it at the beginning of the semester and the other half was like “duh. because you would all have been jumping out of your seats to defend the racist dickbag.”
