American History X

maxresdefault

American History X is a movie about two brothers; the oldest one, Derek, was a member of a white supremacist gang and went to prison for 3 years after brutally killing two black men who tried to steal his truck. After doing his time and experiencing many traumatic things, he wanted to prevent his younger brother, Danny, from going down the same path.

I believe this movie is very important since it shows the consequences of racism. It is definitely worth watching and we can learn a lot from it: hate just leads to more hurt, it does not solve anything but rather makes everything much worse. We can choose which path we go down in life, but all that depends on the actions we take.
