Celebrating the diversity of cultures we have is okay and learning about different cultures is okay -- but when people adopt or imitate another culture without first educating themselves on the implications or background of that culture, then that is not okay. There is a fairly thin line between cultural appropriation and appreciation that has sparked much controversy, especially in the pop culture arena (ej: Justin Bieber and other white celebrities sporting dreadlocks). However, it's undeniable that heavy stereotyping and disrespect for another culture deserves more scorn than praise. This is an important and debatable topic, so I'd be glad to hear any other opinions on this issue!

The storyline is the same for many movies. Queen & Slim and Richard Jewell seem to have the same storyline as Divergent and The Gauntlet with Sandra Locke. Abuse of power by the government. Does it matter if the victim is of Sandra Locke's profession or Richard Jewell's o? Does it matter the race of those involved. Is not the story that Government power corrupts. The Government bullies pick on those who they can. The Government bully never looks for a fair fight. Queen&Slim and Richard Jewell fans need to bridge the divide.
