‘Get Out’: I Trusted That Character Until The End And It’s Really F*cking With Me
David Dennis, Jr.

What Get Out does so brilliantly is make us question and confront our own racial blind spots and prejudices. For myself, the movie made me examine how I look at white women and their role in racism. And I still don’t have any good answers as to why I wasn’t more discerning from the beginning. Was Rose just that convincing or was I in some way hoping for her to be true to her man? And why? Since leaving the theater I’ve had to confront my role as a black man in some black men’s deification of white women. Do I have some of that in me?

Read Eldridge Cleaver’s Soul on Ice. It’s a proper mindf*ck. You’ll find your answers in this book.
