Heat of the Night

Racism alludes to an unfortunate scenario for those deemed of a lower class than their compatriots. Whereas there exists continual call for equality, and significant achievements accomplished regarding laws and regulations that protect every citizen’s rights to proper treatment, the society still lacks decorum by holding negative racial stereotypes, tolerates and embraces discrimination. Media is an influential industry in the universe that is not only shrouded by the unfortunate malpractice of segregation but also infringement against the considered ‘inferior race.’ 1967s mystery drama film In the Heat of the Night and contemporary horror movie Get Out explore the tenants of the mentioned issue.

The protagonist faces such in his unprecedented arrest for murder when he is a man of the blue cloth. Experiences of the lead actor give the audience a critical approach in viewing the unfortunate events shrouding the African American race and the other inferior persons.
