I was a little surprised at how the people in the movie treated African Americans. The craziest part was that they were not far from the truth. My father was born in Alabama in 1955 when the whole racism was going on. Even though he was a boy he still saw racism everywhere. I would not have had the courage to do what Ernest did, I would be too fearful and I know I wouldn’t keep a cool head if hurtful terms were said towards me. T he little rock nine demonstrated no matter how young you are if you stand up for what you believe in, there just might be a change. And I’m very appreciative of that.
