Is "Spring Breakers" Racist?

Posted: April 1st, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Is "Spring Breakers" Racist?Submit Comment
According to box office results, the majority of people have yet to see Harmony Korine's "Spring Breakers." But some who have seen it, claim that it's very racist, despite the fact that Korine said that it's not supposed to be realistic. It's more of a poem or a dream.

The reason why some critics believe the film is racist, is because almost all people who are just looking to have a good time are white. Meanwhile, except for Franco, every killer and drug dealer is black. And Franco's character is constantly second-guessing being violent, with some believing that the movie is trying to say that his whiteness won't let him be as violent as the black characters.

Slate magazine adds that white lives are important in "Spring Breakers," but black people are killed without any focus on them. "'Spring Breakers' is a mirror image of 'Django Unchained,' in which the deaths of white slave holders are treated with frivolity, while the deaths of their slaves are brutal and difficult to watch," wrote the magazine. "Of course, the whole point of that movie is that slave owners deserved to die."

White slave owners in "Django Unchained" deserve to die, but murderers in "Spring Breakers" didn't deserve to die?

Question: Is it irresponsible or racist to make almost 100% of the bad guys in "Spring Breakers" black?

what the f*ck. I'm black and I didn't find the movie racist. When you deal with a movie surrounding the rap industry, drugs, and guns in Miami, YOURE GONNA HAVE BLACK f*ckING DRUG DEALERS.

And of course White deaths mattered more in the movie, because they were CLOSEST TO THE MAIN CHARACTERS.

And of course the Whites looked like they were having fun, because its SPRING BREAK ON THE BEACH IN f*ckING MIAMI.

This entire article is inane.

True racism died with slavery, this is just entertainment, no one is forcing those nigras to show up to work to portray murderers and drug dealers, they just fit the part and someones gotta put chicken on the table.

I think the movie would be have been better if Gucci Mane and James Franco's roles were reversed...

I'm disgusted by this article! Do you even have to ask this question? Who gave you the right to imply that this movie does not portray black people in negative light?

Are you black? Were your ancestors kidnapped from their homes in Africa and sold as a cattle?

EVERYTHING IS RACIST!!!

Sincerely Yours, Spike.

@mink

In response to what you said about Breaking Bad, the journey of Walter White is horrifyingly cathartic. He f*cked up his family life and he is perpetually stuck in a horrible situation. Always bsing more&more to stay alive. Giancarlo Esposito illustrated how foolish Walter is too.

I know it's an ugly show but it remains compelling to me. Can't look away.

People who see racism under ever stone have no life. When you can't even enjoy a movie because of racist phantoms what can you enjoy? Pathetic.

Yes, the movie is entirely racist because it reflects actual reality instead of Hollywood's politically-correct caricature of reality.
