This paper discusses the movie "Crash" from a white women's perspective. It looks at how the movie follows several people, of various ethnic backgrounds, through typical days that generally include work and family and romantic relationships. The paper also examines how over and over the point is made that racist attitudes exists everywhere and in everything even though not necessarily on a conscious level.

From the Paper:

"Crash moves in and out of the lives of the powerful, the obsolete, the defeated. People are shown working and loving and struggling to get by, no matter what comforts race or status have or should have afforded them. Within each character looms large a sense of entitlement. The African Americans want an apology, as if mere words could undo the hurts of decades past. The uppercrust Caucasions think money has earned them the right to be left alone until services demand the presence of the masses and even then they want to hide behind a wall of suspicion, too paralyzed by fear to glance over. The Mexican Americans want opportunity, a better life that can be earned through the hard work they're unafraid of if only temptation to earn smarter and faster wasn't omnipresent. "
