Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


The film title “green book” is a real travel guide for blacks in history. In 1962, the white supremacy movement once again set off a small climax in the United States. Victor Hugo green, a black postman, wrote such a booklet to point out which hotels and restaurants can allow blacks to stay and eat. Green in the booklet’s name “green book” is taken from green and seems to adopt the meaning of green as a symbol of smoothness. The two leading men of the film took the green book and drove to tour all over the United States. One of the male owners is Tang, a famous black musician, and the other is Tony, a white old gun who lives in a nightclub. He was called to be Tang’s driver. The contrast between skin color and cultural cultivation naturally produces some wonderful chemical reactions on the journey. In addition, the film also shows many levels of Entanglement: racial discrimination, racial inequality, between masters and servants, the social status of musicians, family relations and so on.

Many films that reflect racial discrimination have some politically correct meanings. In this film, it should be the plot that the musician Tang in the bar is drunk and beaten by a group of whites. Finally, Tony (white driver) fought violence with violence and rescued don under a pile of fists and the muzzle of a shotgun. However, the greater thing about the film is that it unexpectedly avoids the direct conflict between races and reflects the discrimination itself in some reverse ways. White people who look friendly make a 180 degree turn when they encounter practical problems. For example, they went south to a luxurious manor. The owner of the manor received the musicians and their party politely. After the performance, Tang wanted to use the bathroom. The owner of the manor refused to let him use the bathroom for the guests, but only let him use the pit built by a simple shed in the yard. Because at that time in the South and before the liberation of serfs, blacks could not use the same toilet as whites. Even if Tang’s status as a musician is very noble and performed twice in the White House, he is no exception. When they were imprisoned because Tony called the traffic police, Tang called the president’s brother and got an “amnesty” from the upper level. Even in this case, Tang cannot avoid discrimination. Another example of contrast comes from a high-end restaurant in Birmingham. The restaurant invited Tang to perform. When the restaurant manager saw Tang, his mouth was full of praise, but the lounge arranged for Tang was a small storage room, and Tang was not allowed to eat in the restaurant, because the restaurant’s rule was not to receive blacks.

In my opinion, this film has one more greatness. Let’s make a bold guess. The film is also a bit of “body” for whites. In the middle of the journey, a dialogue between the two sublimated the theme of the film. Tony said, I grew up in a small society, surrounded by my relatives and acquaintances. I haven’t read any books or seen anything in the world. I don’t have so much education like you, so I think so. This passage was originally intended to refute Tang’s view that Tony’s behavior is too vulgar and judge people by appearance. By implication, I saw some sympathy for discriminators on the issue of discrimination.

The contemporary United States can be said to have studied discrimination to the extreme. When I first came to study in the United States, I met Asian students in the school who had English names and Chinese surnames. Sometimes we are used to asking, do you speak Chinese (or do we speak Chinese for communication) or are you Chinese. The other party was silent for a few seconds and said:

“I’m from Michigan!”.

Then he gave a white eye and left.

Once I chatted with my roommate who was a Chinese student. I felt that most ABC were difficult to communicate. You came forward to say hello. She responded casually and turned around and left. Roommates said that because they were afraid of being mistaken for Chinese students, they were far away from the Chinese circle.

My roommate said that there was a post on the Internet saying that those cold ABC came out of the bottom immigrant families. In the early years, it was not easy for my parents to roll and climb, and finally settled down. I was afraid that they would be regarded as nannies and Chinese restaurant waiters, so I had to rely on the mainstream society. ABC, who immigrated with highly educated parents, didn’t matter. When contacting foreign students, they took the initiative to report out of their homes, and some insisted on speaking a few words of Chinese to win everyone’s favor.

Think about it. It’s basically the same rule around you. In the past, when we were in China, we often had regional discrimination, clothing discrimination and school discrimination. “Climbing high” is probably everyone’s mentality more or less. The smaller the city, the more serious the mentality of judging people by appearance. They haven’t seen much of the world. They label people according to their accent and appearance.

A few days ago, I heard a white colleague say that she went to a party and met a black man. The apartment was carpeted, so everyone took off their shoes. She praised each other’s socks for their beautiful patterns. The black man said, thank you. It’s basketball socks. Then she asked:

“Do you play basketball?”

“Hey, you’re discriminating against me.” The black man said angrily,

what? I’ll just ask you whether you play basketball or not, is that I discriminate against you? Yes, the basketball world is really dominated by blacks. But is this guy too glass hearted, or does he naturally think that as long as you look white, you will discriminate against blacks. Is this also a discrimination against white skin color.

Another time I talked to my colleagues about a topic that could lead to capsizing. There is a German in the Department, a little dull and cute. In addition, there is an American with the same name in the Department, so they often joke and add “that German” to his name every time they mention him. Once when we sat together, I asked those jokers what stereotype do you think Germans have. This question is not too abrupt in Chinese (please talk to me about “what are the characteristics of you Hubei people”). Once put into the English context, it suddenly becomes an extremely acute problem, because Americans dare not be labeled as “commenting on others at will”.

The colleague who had been joking suddenly said very carefully, er….. Probably…. Um… It should be more regular…… What do you Chinese think Americans have?

Suddenly I felt that I was hit by the bullet I sent. I have to talk about the topic I triggered when I was crying. I said, it’s probably a party every day. That’s what they do in movies.

It didn’t seem like such a mean comment, but it made me tremble. Because in American schools, “judging people by their appearance” and casually commenting on people are taboos. If you really take the habit of chatting in China and chat with people in the United States, you may step on minefields. So it makes sense that Americans don’t make friends with their colleagues.

I have always felt that a lot of racial discrimination is not abused. It is often seen that Asian employees in a unit work much harder than African employees, but they have much less opportunities for salary and promotion. Chinese and ethnic minorities compete for the same position in the academic circle. If the Chinese’s resume is not much higher than the other party, they can’t get it basically. Once I had dinner with several ethnic minority friends. They also said that when we apply for school, we will pay special attention to our race, so it will be much easier to apply. It’s really difficult for you Chinese to study.

Last month I met a second generation of Chinese sociologists from Columbia University. Because I have encountered white eyes before, I don’t ask questions about family and language when I meet Chinese Americans now. Chatting, she took the initiative to tell me that her parents were from China. I showed some surprise. Unexpectedly, she was very excited and said, “Wow, don’t I look like a Chinese!”. It seems that it is also an ABC who wants to get rid of Chinese identity. Then we talked about going to school. I said it’s not easy for you Asians. You have to be much better than minorities to enter schools of the same grade. She said, you are wrong to say so, because Americans know that we Chinese can come to the United States, and we are not ordinary people. For example, my father is a university professor, he can easily find a job, and our family’s economy is guaranteed; However, blacks were originally the oppressed proletariat in history, and their starting point was low. We must give them some compensation.

I think her words are quite reasonable. My parents used to be oppressed. Thanks to the arrangement of history, they would not have been able to study in the University. Finally from behind the starting line to catch up, looks will not eat too much thanks. But even if blacks get the chance to go to college, in many people’s hearts, they can’t get rid of the appearance label of “danger”; As depicted in the film, the “inferiority” of blacks in the south is a deep-rooted idea in the hearts of the descendants of slave owners. It is understandable that modern society gives blacks some compensation. Asian Americans do not love resistance and silently endure the discrimination of entering school. Whites are even more afraid to speak, which is originally the focus of anti racial discrimination.

Not long ago, the supply of fried chicken and watermelon juice by New York University during black activity week triggered a discussion of racial discrimination. This news indirectly imitates Sheldon’s action of sending the classic TV series “root” about serfs to the black Dean of the Department in the big bang of life. A little angry, a little funny, and more helpless. In the case of racial discrimination, the media usually do not give discriminators the right to speak. News about discrimination against Asians is not uncommon. Sometimes I wonder if everyone really has a glass heart. The model Gigi Hadid imitated the single eyelid of the Buddha and was accused of racial discrimination. It was also racial discrimination for the model of Du jiabanna to deliberately draw small eye makeup (but Du jiabanna’s group of advertisements and twitter messages were indeed excessive). Tell me about my experience. One day I bought lunch in the hospital where I worked. When I swiped my card, the salesperson took my card and asked, do you want to help the old lady behind you? I was stunned before I realized that she should take me as the care of the old white woman behind me. I do look like the common Chinese nursing in the hospital, so I don’t blame her. My colleague said that the degree of discrimination is enough to make a whole news. With the gradual refinement of racial discrimination, people become more and more sensitive. In the green book, Tony was originally a Dane with blond hair and deep eyes. His hair was dyed black and his eye makeup was made up of Italians. In the film, he joked about Italian surnames more than once. Will such a way of expression be regarded as the producer discriminating against Italians?

The film also gives whites a small chance to complain. Not every white man is highly educated and has seen the world, and not every white man should live a dignified life. I grew up in a small environment. I haven’t seen many people different from me. I’ve only seen black people who eat fried chicken. I think you look like a person who likes fried chicken and bought fried chicken. Can you also understand my shortsightedness and openness.
