Crash Essy

Julius M Dix Professor Gail Lighthipe Writing 106 Section 1 12 November 2013 clangoring Essay Crash is the perfect analogy of how we as a compassionate race deal with conduct, mass and our own experiences. Physical characteristics and racial differences may be interpreted as two distinguishing traits that separate us. I view its what keeps us apart. That leaves some(prenominal) abstract questions that the film Crash illustrates. What are the origins of individual(prenominal) prejudice? Do individuals experience stereotypes? Can people battle immanent struggles within their own ethnic group?What prohibits us from vercoming these prejudices? The writers of the Crash managed to result my viewing experience beyond the 90 minute film, thus forcing me to psychoanalyze my own prejudices and racial stereotypes towards others. I always thought that racism occurred as a result of a persons upbringing. If your parents were racist, there is a good jeopardize that you will be a racis t too. At first glance, languor Dillons character exhibits characteristics typical of this theory. Dillon exhibited a close bond with his sire and later, we experience the roots of his racism.I naively assumed that Dillon as absorbing external cues from his father regarding his attitudes towards black people. It turns out that his father was not racist towards black people. It was Dillon who, in combination with his fathers negative experiences and his own as a member of the LAPD, organize his own perceptions towards blacks. Another example of this occurred at the beginning of the film when the Persian family was attempting to purchase a gun. The clerk at the gun shop make a few blatantly racist comments about the perceptions of the customers. There were several references to the twin owers and planes.It didnt matter that the two were Persian, not Arab. A recurring guinea pig was that post 9/1 1, all Middle Eastern people became potential terrorists. It is amazing that people have the ability to interpret with child(p) events and cast their own prejudices on different ethnic groups to mask their sensation of anger and frustration. Perhaps stereotypes have maintained their prevalence because there are so many people that perpetuate them. It is a great deal believed that all immature black men are destined to be thugs, criminals and drug dealers. to boot it is a common statistic hat the majority of incarcerated males are Afri stinkpot American.As a young black man, it is difficult to break free of that stereotype. Things will never change. That attitude along with the perpetuation of existing stereotypes may be more often than not responsible for negative racial longevity. Ludacris character was one of the most fire to me. Here was this articulate young black man that spent his life stealing cars from white people. Rap music is the music of the oppressor, he said. It is often easier to blame others for your shortcomings than it is to confront them h ead on. On the reverse, rouble facing stereotypes can occur anywhere.They are not simply restricted to skin-tone and neighborhoods. Racial difference transpires through social class as well. This creates division within the similar racial groups. In the film, Cameron was portrayed as a wealthy, black, television actor. He achieved success as a nard working black man, exactly at what cost? Films like Crash are forcing us to visualise outside our own lives and fears, to realize that were more alike than we think. Aside from the 2% genetic differences between us, we all have problems and internal struggles. Thats what makes us human.
