I currently finished watching the black kkklansman movie and I really advise everyone to watch it. The movie is based on a true story about an american hero and it was released last year (2018). I didn’t know much about the ku klux klan(kkk) and presumed it dated back in the 1800’s but actually, it still continues to this day.
White Americans still believe in discriminating everyone else except themselves(white americans), which i find really stupid and shocking. I always knew our world needed improvement, but I didn’t know how much was needed to gain the same equality with races to genders.
After finishing the movie, it has made me question society today. As you may know there are so much happening nowadays with the James Charles and Tati Westbrook drama. And yes, it can be quite entertaining to watch, when you’re lying in bed with nothing to do. But there are definitely better things to be paying attention to, then drama about two famous celebrities having a fight over social media!
It’s incredible how news travels fast on the internet. Tati’s youtube video has been viewed 47 million times within a week, and it had trended all over the youtube community. Imagine the power someone could do, with those amount of views! They could talk about actual world issues such as poverty or climate change. Yet, this world full of people tend to focus on things that aren’t important at all. Things that they might forget about next week, and remember and laugh at in the future.
I really hope one day, some famous social influencer uses their power and fame to change the world for the better. To make viewers focus on better things than drama.
