Spike Lee’s films never fail to spark controversy in the filmgoing world due to constantly dealing with the delicate topic of race and by clearly portraying his pro-black view of the topic. His films point out the corruption of our world and realize the separation of our society, especially in the black culture. In his classic film, Do the Right Thing, he reveals the struggles of an interracial community that doesn 't get along with each other. The climax of the film is undoubtedly when Sal’s famous Pizzeria is vandalized and burned by the community after the police kill Radio Raham because of an aggressive confrontation in his shop. The event transpire all because Buggin’ Out made the request to display pictures of blacks on the pizzeria’s
The abuse was so bad that when Gacy was molested by a family friend he suffered in silence. Gacy was so scared about what his father would do he chose to keep quiet. John Wayne Gacy was guilty of killing 33 people mostly teenage boys and burying them under his house. He got most of his victims by dressing up as pogo the clown. In conclusion I fully believe that that abuse and bullying have a lot to do with how a person reacts.
Tom Buchanan’s character is the most parasitical one in the book. He is much like a leech, hurting others for his own benefit. When Wilson goes to Tom to find out who the owner of the yellow car is, he “told him the truth” knowing very well the deranged state Wilson was in (9). Tom did this because he knew Wilson “was crazy enough to kill [him] if [he] hadn’t told him who owned the car”

The movie Crash deals with the issues of contemporary civilization, hostility, distrust of people towards each other and particularly in the direction of those one of other racial or ethnic groups. This is in particular current for The United States of America as it brings together several nationalities, in the middle of which the divergences frequently occur. There is one general matter that all the surrounds share commonly – social, economic and ethnic worries in The US, at the same time there are also quite a lot of matters exposed such as brutality, illegal migration, social unfairness and discrimination. Crash is not about a small number of characters, but concerning several on one instance. Consequently, as there is neither a key nor a principal character, but fairly each one has both a prime and significant function; for the reason that every player has a singular path but linked to everyone at the last part.

The police were very often seen as violent, brutal, and corrupted. The author takes it a step further to not only say that this relationship is only caused because the men are gangsters, but that they are also Mexican. There are many occasions when Rodriguez relays an account where the police call the men very racist names and act upon their beliefs in a very brutal manner. He continues this theme of social inequality as he talks about his experiences in school and his parents ' experiences in their jobs. By depicting these situations Rodriguez makes the large assumption that the main reason that gangs are so prominent is because the Mexican culture was experiencing a lack of resources and support and therefore, their youth turned to something they felt could help.
In addition, the movie shows that Tom made this comment in front of black butlers, clearly showing how rude and insensitive he is, and how accepted racism is. Another example of racism in The Great Gatsby is when Nick and Gatsby are driving into Queens, New York. When Nick sees a limousine with three black people in it, he reflects "Anything can happen now that we've slid over this bridge, anything at all"(Fitzgerald p69). This quieter racism is just as damaging as Tom’s bluster. It sets people apart and makes them different (Slater 55).
