i didnt really have a reaction to the video because i already knew some of the info that was given. i learned that there are more blacks that drop out and that are likely not to succeed than whites. some subjects that were already familiar to me was how many blacks were in jail more than whites.

My overall reaction was not a really shocking reaction because most of the stuff was true . I learned that it is really hard for most black men , but sometimes not even black men but women also. The subjects that were already familiar with me was the drug dealing[like the lil hood life], and gangs.


Drug dealing didnt really affect me its just a known thing going around in my community that shouldnt be happening, because now days you have young kids out here selling drugs.


gangs affect me because they do all the gang violence , like all the shootings , murders. Because a bullet has a no name , cause its been couple of times i couldve been dead . [tear]

my overall reaction to the film is that it really wasnt a shock to me at all. this happens on a daily basis around inglewood and los angeles.

i was already familiar with the drugs going on because i know some people that sell drugs and smoke it. and the gangs that people saying they where from and all the killing people.

I didnt really have a reaction to the video. I learned many things and Honestly forgot. A subject that is familiar to me is the way they still treat black people differently then others. Example its a 70% chance of a black man going too jail then a white person like that isnt right just because we're black they can juss say and do anything they want too doo. It affects me because i dont think its right and its very unfair.

I didnt have a reaction to the video because i already know the information. What I learn from the video was that there a re less black males that suceed in life from a bad neiborhood. The subject that was familar to me is the criminal record.

I think the movie was boring but very informational. I learned that black people have been sterotyped by many white people and that they had hard times achieving. What I already knew was that white people were racist before MLK.

My overall reaction of the film is that is was very good ang taught me alot that I didn't know about the black men back in the day. I learned about how the white men that had bad records would get a job before the black men with clean records.

i think the "video" was healthy to my knowledge of past history. i knew most of the things that were going on. something that was pretty interesting was when the man explained how things were when he was young on the day mlk died and how they left school to stand for their rights. :)

I don't really have a reaction because i already knew about most of the stuff they was talking about. I learned that almost 90 percent of black men that drop out of high school and end up in jail. Im familiar with police stopping people just because they are black.

i didnt have a reaction because everything they said was true. but i actually learned that it is most hard for black men to catch or to get a job because of their appearence and the jacket that most black men got which is being a hustler and/or slanging dope or being pimps or being gangbangers .... and i know because i grow up in a house which these people come through all daii everdaii and most of the men in my family do those kind of things

i like the video because it talk about some peoples life and how they had go through good things and bad. i learned that people are not nice around african american people and people would be mean to them. i believe we should be nice to everyone because everyone is the same.

10:25 AM  
Blogger gerardo munoz said...

well this film thought me that people do treat you different when you have a dark complexion because people always are stereo types and that it's a harder world when you are African-American because people don't see other than white people a higher class person.

10:25 AM  
Blogger mike said...

My overall reaction is that black people arent treated right they are juged by the color of their skin and on how they look. Some things that I learned are that not all black people are the same there are some bad ones but there is some good ones too. The one subject that i was familiar with was the subject on how people jugdged black people based on what they hear or see on the tv or hear on the radio.This affects me cause we are all suppose to be treated equally but people dont give chances to people because of the sruff that happens around us.(jobs)

10:26 AM  
Blogger "MX" RIDER # 02 "ERIK " said...

my overall reflection to the film is that it is harsh how society treats people jus because of their skin tone. some things i learner was that many black people have been stereotyped them by many white people.

my over all reaction towards the video isnt really a shocking surprise because that is life people still treat african americans different.i learned that in our society its hard for black men to get threw life....

my reaction to the film is a not a really shocking one b/c we see all those kind of things dat happend to people every day.I learn that in live you will always have a decision in whethere you go the succeedful way or the not succeedful way.

I don't really have a reaction. Everything that they were basically saying i knew already. Umm, i know that 60% of black high school dropouts end up in jail. This made me think about how black people are always messing up in life.

my overall reactiont to the movie was not shocking. it was not shicking b/c i already knew mst of the information the movie had. some things that i learned was that black people have to overcome many stereotypes. i was already familiar with white people treating black people cruel.

Black in America is a video that introduced me to the cold, hard facts of being an African American living in America. This video covered points that were evident to me, but expanded my point of view on them. This video catered to my need of knowing more about stereotypes that are making our country fall apart and be a lot more resentful towards our fellow man. This documentary showed the lives of many Africa Americans, and how being black affects them, they’re ability to get a job, and they’re chances at doing things that people categorize as "white". One story that was really mind boggling was the story of two brothers, the Dyson’s. Michael Dyson was a light skinned black man who was a professor and his younger brother was a dark skinned black man who was sent to life in prison for murder. When Michael was younger he was a public speaker, while his brother was a drug dealer. The younger brother said that it was all about decisions and he made the wrong ones. He also said that it hurts him to see that Michael is distraught to see him in prison. I think it was brave of him to show his feelings and to say that he regretted make those wrong choices. Overall, I think this was a very intriguing video that showed me the part of Black America that White and/or Corporate America wouldn’t want the public to see.

to tell you the truth i really had no reaction towards the film. this was mainly because i already new most of the things they brought up in this film. the things that came in the film didnt effect me in no way possible.

it was an alright film but very informative

somee things i learned were how a white person with a criminal record has a better chance of getting a job that an blakc person without one

that there are alot of blakc peopel in jail

My overall reaction to the movie, is that I figured that some of that stuff was going to happen.
The things I learned was that even though you have a college degreee some people wouldnt even offer you an job. When you get out of jail and you want to find an job they look at your file, plus they wouldnt hire you at an low paying job. Some of subjects about the racist part was fimialr , and the music business. Blacks always get caught but an white person won't.

12:37 PM  
Blogger [[KEVINN]] said...

i learned lots of stuff but i knew about some stuff already i learned that a white guy with a criminal record has more of a chance to get a job then a african american with a criminal record. that really shocked me and suprised me with what type of world we live in

12:40 PM  
Blogger brilon said...

i wasnt shocked.
at all.
i knew most of that stuff already. ive even experienced some.

the things i already knew about were that some black kids that live in a mostly white neighborhood have a hard time fitting in, many blacks students drop out of school and most end up in jail, some get affiliated wiith gangs and sell/buy drugs. i aslo knew that cops will stop young black people just to check & make sure they arent up to no good. im affected because im a black person & i would be mad if a cops stopped me & i wasnt doing anything wrong.. besides you dont see cops stopping white people for no reason. thats about it.

My overall reaction to the video was not that shocking bcuz I hear the same stuff everyday about African Americans. I didnt really learn anything, but I can say if its that important, that whhen they heard the news that MLK Jr., died, the white ppl were all happy and stuff. All of the subjects are pretty fimilar with me.

i thought that most of what it said was true because everyone is the same...you can go to the same school and it is like if there is 2 roads (the road of successes and the road of DOOM!!)most of the time you let your friends choose what road you go to but that im trying to say is that you should do your hardest and try to make money

12:44 PM  
Blogger ↓•Jose•↓ said...

My reaction was that its weird how some people that grow up in the same house and are close to each other have different futures.

I learned that blacks have a less chance than getting a job than a white person. If the black person has NO criminal record and a white person does and they both apply for a spot in a job the white person with the criminal record will most likey get the job.

I was already familiar with the drug dealing thing because they need money and without a job people have to get money Illegally. Some become drug dealers and others steal.

My over all reaction to the file was surprized. I knew that it was hard for black men to find jobs but i didnt know it was that bad. But the reasons why that is becuz of how black people go twards. Some black people go on the write path some go the wronf way. So itz up to our people to do good and be on the right path

I guess I reacted in a dissapointed kind of way. I feel that people degrade our culture all the time and you would think that the harsh reality of it all would make our culture want to change and would want to portray a better image for themselves. It was hard understanding why people generalize ALL blacks the way they do, and have been doing for these hundreds of years. It inspired me to keep doing me and to never forget who I am and where I came from because I know that it is possible that because I am a black american I can accomplish anything. Nothing is impossible for me because people doubt me and frown upon my background.

8:20 AM  
Blogger Edgar Garcia said...

well i didn't learn anything most of the things the movie went over i already knew. The thing that was mor efamiliar to me was that there was more blacks in jails than whites and that not many blacks succeed if they come from a bad neighborhood and it is easier for them to do or deal drugs.

Blogger Johnny said...

My overall reaction to the film "Black in America" was that how hard you work will show how you will end up in the future. i learned that when they showed the 2 brothers both of them had the same opprotunitys but in the end they went seperate paths. i think that i already knew that your race can really affect how people hire you. if i want to get a job it might affect me because since i'm mexican they might give the position to some one else.

Well it made realize a lot of things one of them is that racism is still present and it is harder for Arican- Americans to succeseed because of the stereotypes against them. The thing that made blew me away was the how corprate America took hip-hop and rap and transformed into something that is only about money,sex, and drugs when it used to be about something positive.

MY REACTION TO THE FILM WAS THAT I AM VERY PROUD OF THOSE AFRICAN AMERICAN THAT TRY TO PROVE THAT THEY CAN TO WHAT WHITE PEOPLE.
-ONE THING THAT I LEARNED WAS THAT POLICE OR WHITES JUST BECAUSE OF THE COLOR OF YOUR SKIN WILL JUDGE YOU WRONG.

. FOR EXAMPLE WHEN THAT ONE CLACK FAMILY MOVED INTO THAT ALL WHITE HOOD PEOPLE CALLED THE COPS TO SAY THIER WAS SOME WIERD PEOPLE IN THE HOOD,THEY NEVER THOUGHT A BLACK FAMILY WOULD BE ABLE TO SUCCEED AND MOVE IN A SO CALLED RICH HOOD. =]

. I WAS FAMILIAR WITH MANY SUBJECTS IN THE FILM , ITS ALL BASED ON RACIST THINGS .

The video we watched in class really opened my eyes. I didn't know all of the statistics that were given. I was actually surprised, even with my knowledge of racism beforehand. It showed me how so many people struggle with discrimination trying to get an education and a reasonable job to support their families. Also, when the fair-skinned man compared himself to his darker-skinned brother, he noticed that it was easier for him because of his skin color. I was aware that being a minority is harder, but I guess I wasn’t as aware as I thought.

The over all recation I had to "Black in America" was that I couldn't believe that blacks are treated so bad. I learned that 1 out of every five whites go to jail but three out of every five blacks go to jail. Blacks complete about 60% of the prisinors in jail. The subjects that where already familiar with me are that I knew that many teacher have been incredibly rasist with the black kids.

I thought the program was interesting. It was one hundred times better that that T.I.’s redemption. I thought everything they said was true. It is harder for “colored” people to be successful because we have more obstacles to go though. There is still a lot of discrimination.

I REALLY DIDNT HAVE ANY REACTION ON THE FILM BECAUSE I ALREADY KNEW WHAT IT WAS ABOUT. I DIDNT REALLY LEARNED ANYTHING BECAUSE IT WAS STUFF I ALREADY KNEW. BUT I THINK ITS REALLY SAD AN UNFAIR THAT ONE RACE HAS MORE OPPORTUNITIES THAN OTHERS, EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE THE SAME. EVERYONE DESERVES A CHANCE, EVERYONE CAN BE SUCCESSFUL, I DONT THINK COLOR HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH NO BEING SUCCESSFUL!

My overall reaction to the film was that I was amazed in how many things affect african americans. I learned that it's hard for African-Americans to succeed because of their circumstances, but when they do achieve they're critisized for not being "black enough". This is one of the most important/interesting facts that i lerned and understood during the film. The rest I already was familar with like % of blacks that go to jail vs. whites, % of blacks that are affected their criminal surroundings,etc.

WELL BASED ON THE THINGS I SAW I THOUGHT THAT THE FILM WAS VERY INTRIGING AND VERY CRUEL BECAUSE FOR THE FACT THAT ALL THOSE AFRICAN AMERICAN MEN FOUGHT TO BE RECOGNIZED AND NOTED FOR THEIR SUCCEESSES AND TRIUMPHS SOME THINGS THAT I LEARNED WERE THAT ITS REALLY TOUGH TO GET A JOB WITHOUT BEING THOUGHT OF AS A LAZY AFRICAN AMERICAN THATS NOT GOING TO BRING ANY GOOD TO THEIR JOB.

My overall reaction of the film "Black in America" is that I got suprised of the amount of "Black" males actually taking responsibility for their children. To me that is REALLY rare, but it must be true. I learned that the darker the people are the less they are treated fairly. I was familiar with "Black" people having a greater percent of breaking laws such as stealing, than "White" people. One example is that there was a Black man at a park spending time and taking care of his son. This a great example of responsability and it proved that even though there is a good amount of people that wont take responsibility there are some people that set a good example.

To be real, i wasnt really surprised about the show Black in America because i know what goes on this world just like everbody else does. I know that if u go to a job interview, mostly the white person will get the job over the black man. I know that if a black man lives in a white neighbor, his neighbor will be suspicious of him. We often have these sterotypes about Black people, If we dont play basketball, football, know how to sing or rap, we cant do nothing. I know that once you go to jail and get a felony, your life is basically over, especially for a blakc man.

my overall reaction to the video is that many people choose to sterotype others based on what they hear, instead of actually getting to know the person. i learned that if we try hard enough we can do anything and be anything we want. i was already familiar with the fact that many black men end up in jail, on drugs, and in gangs. they also end up being the tool of their own destruction.

well ithink maybe to show people the good and bad things their is for them to do.
well i learned that plack people are real nice and that some are real bad cause they make bad choices.
well most of them because you see them doing things every day in life.
like people sealing drugs you see that in the streets. like killing people in the streets you see that to .

i didnt really have a reaction to "Black in America" because eveything that they show in that film happens here in Inglewood. and mainly its worse here in Inglewood. i didnt learn anything because i already about all the struggles of living as an african-american so i didnt quite learn anything. everything was already familiar to me. i know alot of people who live like that, who struggle everyday, who work hard just to live. so everything was familiar and the film was cool.

I didnt really have an reaction, i knew it was hard for black men to get jobs but i didn tknow that it got to the point where it was that bad. I see now that when i get older i will have to present myself in a well way in i really want a good job, which i do. Also, i already knew that alot of black men were in jail, but i feel that half of the men in jail are innocent.

I didn't really have a surprising reaction to what they showed in the film. Most of the information was something I already knew; growing up in the neighborhood we're in, we get a better-than-average look at how the world really is. Our country used to be run by only white males, and now we're actually starting to see some change. In most places though, it really won't make much of a difference, like here. One example was the man who had been on a job-hunt for months, and when he filled out an online application, they asked him to come to the store for an interview. When he got there, they told him to leave, probably because they noticed he was black. From my point of view, this country grew up prejudiced, and that might just be the way it'll stay.

My overall reaction was not a shocking reaction because i knew some of that stuff already. I learned that it is really hard for most black men,7 EVEN some black women.

some subjects that were already familiar to me was the drug dealing & gangs & how more blacks were in jail than whites.

to tell you the truth i really had no reaction towards the film. this was mainly because i already new most of the things they brought up in this film. the things that came in the film didnt effect me in no way possible.

i think that the video was very goood because we learned a little more about how african americans have more stuggles because they have to face different things, i learned that after all ur skin color shouldnt hold u back because if u try to achieve something ur eventually going to get it like some people in the video did.

This movie is about stories of some black people who have struggle in life do to white supremacy and segregation. There lives and stories are great because of the things that they been through also the continuous times they have been in racism, this story called black in america is a wonderful video that everyone should know about.
