The Hate U Give is the new movie starring Amandla Stenberg that’s based on the bestselling YA novel about a Ferguson-like incident where a policeman kills an unarmed young black man. The movie has been universally acclaimed, but it is not without its faults, especially with regards to how much responsibility it places on the black community for police violence.

Teen, Chris, and Millie talk about the pros and cons of the movie and wonder if it will age as badly as another once-heralded race-conscious movie like Crash.
