This book is recommended to others who are looking for a book that displays the social tension of diversity.  The issue of police brutality and racism is real.  In the face of gang related activities and social prejudices police continue to react with violence.  In the book, The Hate U Give, the main character Starr went through a lot of diversity, trials and tragedies throughout her life. She was grown up and lives in a poor neighborhood, but attends an all white prep school as one of the only black girls. Throughout the story, Starr see’s a lot of hate of her being an outsider to her prep high school.  The difference in perspective and personal motivations between police brutality and gang violence.

 

Do you feel like justice was served for kahlil ?

No , i do not feel like justice was served for kahlil. The police that killed him was acting like a victim when his father got on the news and spoke out for him. He didn’t even give kahlil a warning or anything before he shot and killed him. Like they said in the book “it’s just another dead body in the hood”. Since he was black he is looked at and labeled as a minority.

 

In which part of the story do you think the climax takes place?

I think the Climax takes place when Khalil was shot and killed by a police officer, when he was pulled over with Starr, because the plot of the story twisted and focused more so on the shooting and how to serve justice for khalil.

 

How do you feel about the news falsely labeling kahlil as a “drug dealer” or a “gang member” without any knowledge of his background?

I feel like they put a label on kahlil as being a young black male from the “hood”. So automatically he being labeled with being a drug dealer because of where he is from. Not knowing his background that his mom was addicted to crack and she was losing herself and had no money to prove. Kahlil being the only man of the house he felt like it was his job to go out and get money to provide for his family.

    I wanted to watch this movie, it’s really interesting because it’s something that has always been a problem in society.

    I really loved reading this book. Police brutality against young black males is still a big issue in society. I thought the story was very much accurate and always kept me wanting to read more. I really felt like I could relate to parts of the story and the characters. I also really liked the dialogue because it was also accurate to how my family talks. I would recommend this book to everyone especially young black teens. It was honestly a powerful book even though it didn’t end the way I would like it to have. But I appreciate the character growth in book, I felt like all the characters grew and became better people.

    This writing was great and the book sounds good to read about. I’ve haven’t read or saw the movie about it. One day I would want try to see the movie because it sounds interesting to see and it is something that has always been a problem in society. Many police here sometimes don’t respect the black men or women nowadays, it’s sad.
