Having spent most of my life as a white man I was kind of familiar with the horrors of racial inequality. However, the experience of the documentary "Heathers" did change my views of white privilege. I have come to realize that I do not need to be a racist to have a few privileges. It's the experiences of other people that make you different from the majority, and if you don't have a negative experience you can move on to the next person who has had a similar experience. This documentary is a good example of how racism works and the consequences of such an experience. I have seen some comments that people were "pissed" because it did not show any real violence, yet I would say that is not what happened. I have also seen some people saying that the film glorifies violence. The documentary does not show any violence, but rather shows people's struggle to cope with racism and how they deal with it. People can be racist but not violent. The problem is that it is not possible to take a video camera and have a one-on-one conversation with someone who is racist. Racism, however, is not a video. I am not sure that this film was able to accurately capture the pain and fear that a white person feels when he is confronted with racial discrimination. I know that I am not the first white person to be confronted with racial discrimination. The majority of the people who are interviewed are white and therefore cannot relate to the racial conflict. The black people interviewed are only being interviewed to highlight the problem and how they deal with it. I would not recommend this film to anyone who is not already familiar with racial injustice and how it is tackled.
