The Context of White Supremacy hosts the fourth study session on Angie Thomas’s bestselling young adult novel, The Hate U Give. Allegedly penned in response to the 2009 police killing of Oscar Grant, Thomas’s work “debuted at the top of The New York Times’s Young Adult best-seller list, and has drawn ecstatic praise from critics, librarians, book sellers and prominent young-adult novelists,” says The Times’s Alexandra Alter. After a year, The Hate U Give remains on The Times’s bestseller list and is being converted to a major motion picture starring The Hunger Games’s Amandla Stenberg. Last week’s session detailed an especially tacky scene: Khalil’s funeral. During this moment readers are informed that Starr’s father Maverick cheated on her mother and sired a child with a sex worker. Gang members interrupt the proceedings and near brawl ensues near the casket. In between commentary on the drug-selling, fried chicken eating black people, Starr continues to rave about her flawless White boyfriend, Chris. While all of the main black characters are majorly flawed. Chris remains a sparkling example of a character without flaws.
