Description:

This paper discusses the film "Crash" and its depiction of racism and the prevalence of racism in the urban areas of the country, noting that the film dramatizes the reality and the way tensions can escalate to a major disturbance. It is significant that the film is set in Los Angeles, a city that has experienced major disturbances related to race, notably the riot after the first Rodney King verdict, which escalated beyond simple back and white violence to include violence between blacks and Koreans, and blacks and Hispanics as well.

From the Paper:

"Racial tensions in American society continue to shape much public discourse and many interactions between people on the streets. People may like to believe that race has become a non-issue, but it has not. The recent film Crash dramatizes the reality and the way tensions can escalate to a major disturbance. It is significant that the film is set in Los Angeles, a city that has experienced major disturbances related to race, notably the riot after the first Rodney King verdict, which escalated beyond simple back and white violence and included violence between blacks and Koreans and blacks and Hispanics as well. The film also does not confine itself to black-white relations but includes the other racial groups in the city and shows that race may only be a non-issue to whites who want to see it in that light.
