Film: “one Down, -row to 60”-1976 Being that I don’t normally like older movies, this movie was actually pretty good. To me, it showed how white people acted towards black people still even after slavery. Blacks were still mistreated. I think this movie was a Palpitation film because the star of the movie was indeed black and instead of the normal, black men sees and white men live, stereotype, it was completely reversed.
It was a Palpitation because the Black man in the movie even had white women as girlfriends. They also ended up with power and strength at the end of the movie. The movie definitely was not stereotypical though. Comparing the movie to what I read would also show that this movie portrayed every strength of a black person and didn’t downgrade them at all. I’m glad that Palpitation films continued to give blacks equal roles in movies today. Ethical Dilemmas in Criminal Justice By entertainer
