Interesting study about black people, about the rioting english youth, about the french burning cars in Paris...
It hardly shows solutions, only shows how easy destructive phases can be ignited if the community feels suppressed, feel like people of second or maybe third class.
The story is actually ending quite stupid, imo for various reasons, but more movies about this topic would be good.
the film was primarily a social media reaction to THIS:

The riot at the end is symbolic of the outrage of the black community of Brooklyn over the Howard Beach murder. When there's no justice, and no coherent voice, there will be violence. I give the film respect for expressing that, without endorsing it. I credit Spike Lee for managing to inject a fair amount of humor and warmth into this film. It could have easily been a disaster.
