Communities each have their own cultures. As a Chinese American, I've found that Chinatowns act as a "safe haven" for many who share an ethnic identity. Yet there's also a negative side to these communities; stereotypes exist for all cultural groups. An example: when I visited the South Bronx, a Hispanic woman stated that everyone seemed to view a predominantly Hispanic/Puerto Rican community as "dangerous." In reality, the crime rate wasn't particularly greater in that community than the crime rates in any other neighborhood in America. However, not many individuals were willing to see past that stereotype. Chinatowns have often been wrongly viewed as "breeding grounds" for the "model minority" as well. How do you think we can raise awareness of these social issues? Why is it important to challenge these dominant narratives?

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.
