Storyboard Text

  • Poor Jamal… I would do anything to help him. Maybe if I gave him some money or did something to at least help him. He isn’t a nasty monkey! What goes on in people's mind these days, Just because he's black doesn’t give them the right mindset to say that
  • *Class ends*
  • Jamal, I know this is a sensitive topic but, your landlord disowned you like that?
  • Yeah, my family and I struggle getting homes because of our race. African american. My race is my excuse on why I can’t have a nice home, why my brother doesn’t have a nice school.
  • It's ridiculous, just because I am black it doesn’t mean for people to treat me any less.
  • No no, I know what you’re saying. I don’t know why people are so disgusting and it's horrible for society to be treated like that. You aren’t any less important than me
  • Well to some people you are Max. White privilege is used at its most. Anti-black practices are played like it's a ritual, getting called criminals and monkeys.
  • I just wish the black community could be more recognized for our beautiful culture and us African Americans way into life and not white privilege.
  • I-I am so sorry Jamal. Is there anything I can do to help you and your family?
  • No max, keep it to yourself. I got it. But I do want you to meet my family sometime, I think they would really like you, especially my grandma”
  • They both return home.
