Higher Learning by John Singleton and Do the Right Thing by Spike Lee are two very good films that really define prejudice stereotyping racism and hate in our society Higher Learning is about an African Americas life in college and how it was affected by racism and how he overcomes these issues while Do the Right Thing was more about racism and prejudice in a neighborhood community as a whole I thought Do the Right Thing was a better movie overall but Higher Learning was better at portraying the racism and prejudice that exists in our society Do the Right Thing was more of a comedic approach to the issue of racism and there was only one real serious scene in the end that showed what can happen when racism gets out of hand I felt that I could relate better to Higher Learning because it took place in a school setting and its very similar to my own life Most of the time people of the same race hang out in their own groups and dont take the chance of knowing a lot of people that are different from them This leads to people making negatives remarks about other races and thats how a lot of fights are started Higher Learning takes this idea to an extreme level and shows how this hatred can turn into a really violent matter Some people may argue that this movie is just showing an individual case and shouldnt be generalized to show society as a whole but I disagree with that completely Things happen like this every day but on a smaller scale and from time to time an extreme case like this one can pop up unexpectedly We have to become aware that things like this happen every day and we have to deal with it in a calm manner and we cant resort to violence and act in gang like manners to face these events
