There must have been a white nationalist viewing party recently...
18 November 2017 | by bobina_smSee all my reviews

I came here to read about and review this documentary after viewing. I was so moved by it that I am leaving my first review of anything.

Then I read the last two reviews, both posted on November 16, 2017. Neither are reviews of the documentary but attacks on Mike Brown. I won't get into how I grew up within 10 miles in of Ferguson or about how I've lived in St. Louis for 50. How I know that, even though I'm a white woman, racism is alive and well in St. Louis. This documentary was a very accurate portrayal of what the reality is for black people (and other POC) in St. Louis. I've witnessed it over and over again.

The documentary was very well done. It was straight forward and real. Everybody should watch it.
