Anti-Black Racism/Anti-Blackness Part. 3

When I heard that Spike Lee was planing to do a sequel to “School Daze,” I cringed. I hate when directors essentially remake classic films. Leave it be! However, after hearing his reasons why he wanted to update the film, it might not be such a bad idea. Obviously, our culture has changed so much since the original film came out in the late 80’s. Not to mention the many changes at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs). Anti-blackness has grown worse since that time,  even at HBCUs. Lee touched on this issue in the first film.  It will be interesting  to see how he handles the subject matter/expand on it. There are so many places to go with it now
