The Context of White Supremacy hosts the 8th and final study session on Angie Thomas’s globally celebrated young adult novel, The Hate U Give. Allegedly inspired by 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,” writes The Times’s Alexandra Alter. After more than a year, The Hate U Give remains solidified on The Times’s young adult bestseller list and is being formatted for a major motion picture starring The Hunger Games’s Amandla Stenberg. Last week’s segment offered another obese serving of soft core pornography between 16-teen-year old Starr and her White beau, Chris. A book advertised as a serious analysis of racism and police abuse of black people, seems primarily focused on promoting “interracial relationships” and the idea that Whites can learn from black people how to not to practice Racism. In between Starr and Chris integrating the bedroom, the White officer who killed Starr’s black male friend is predictably not indicted. A “riot” ensues where black people roam the streets singing rap lyrics. Chris joins the fracas to authenticate his “blackness.” #AntiBlackness
