Jazmin Mcdonnell PSYCH 300 Tues 6:30-9:20pm The Hunting Ground I never thought of rape epidemic as how it was described in the movie, because that word is usually connected to deadly diseases, or out breaks. And it’s sad because being that I am woman I was always aware of sexual assault and how often it occurs to women in general but maybe its because unlike other deadly diseases that get broadcasted on every news cast imaginable, the subject of rape, or sexual assault is merely brushed under the table. This movie really opened my eyes to it all, you see because it’s the cultural norm I feel not only in America but around the world that rape or even sexual assault for that matter to not be taken serious in the eyes of the media, only
Today America may be the least racist ever. In the American experience video it showed a lot of history of the racism that went on in early 1900s. There is a lot of stuff in the video that can show things that had a great impact on American history. It showed how racist people were. In the history, and maybe a little today.

The film continued to convey untrue information as the story progressed. Soon after Algren agreed to aid the Emperor in training the Imperial Army, he left for Japan. The second scene filmed in Japan was of Captain Nathan Algren meeting the Emperor (Source 2). The first notable inaccuracy in this scene was the age of the Imperial Lord. The actor appears to be eighteen or nineteen years old. However, during the Meji period, the Emperor of Japan was only fifteen years old (Source 5). The film went on to incorrectly portray the Emperor as he spoke directly to Nathan Algren after inviting him into his throne-room (Source 2). This was a completely false interpretation of the young Emperor as he was unable to speak English at all, yet, in the film, he addresses Captain Algren in English (Source 17). Furthermore, it was essential that an appointment was made in order to address the Emperor, yet, Algren is introduced to the Imperial Lord on the same day that he arrived in Japan (Source 12). Therefore the film introduced further contradictions of historical truths.
