The tension and terror that is present-day South Africa is powerfully portrayed in director Richard Attenborough's sweeping story of black activist Stephen Biko (Denzel Washington) and a liberal white newspaper editor who risks his own life to bring Biko's message to the world. After learning of apartheid's true horrors through Biko's eyes, editor Donald Woods (Kevin Kline) discovers that his friend has been silenced by the police. Determined not to let Biko's message go unheard, Woods undertakes a perilous quest to escape South Africa and bring Biko's remarkable tale of courage to the world. The riveting, true story offers a stirring account of man at his most evil and most heroic.

  • Racism cannot exist. It cannot exist as there is only one race of homo sapiens sapiens. Now Steven Colbert. He is a racist. He hates all bears because they are bears. But if you hate another human it is because you are a bigot with prejudices because the path of your ocular nerve goes through your limbic system tainting everything you will ever see by what you have previously seen, heard or thought before and what your opinion of them was. Does brown skin frighten you because of some propaganda and indoctrination into believing certain things such as there is more than one race of human and you evolved from the common ancestor of a sponge. Because they both have the same source, Darwin. Darwin believed Africans were a sub species, and if we eradicated them we would be no further from the gorilla and nature. Also, apparently you evolved from a sponge. I didn't and was commanded to have authority over all the animals, so that may become an issue when you start mooing at me. And that's another reason for the bigotry. Distance from Torah.

  • They graze the topic at the end but the reason for this ‘black’ and ‘white’ is in fact the base for racism. This is because racism at its base is a division formed in colour, it strips away the Individual and casts them as either side of the spectrum. When I say the individual I don’t just mean their personality I mainly mean their origins, see colonialism met Africans and labelled them as black because they couldn’t see those men & and women as humans, they begun to refer to themselves as white when they began interacting with these Africans more and more, and thus sought further division since they now lived among them, which is why in South Africa where they were integrated so aggressively due to Africa being predominantly African this division was pushed equally as aggressively. So today when we refer to eachother as white and black we only serve to perpetuate that division even if we mean it casually it’s the fact that it is so casual that makes the fight against racism so hopeless, black and white leaves no space for a grey area

What scares me is I am so good with all these personalities and characters, it's working. Being blessed from sooo many people and especially people who are not me. The greatest of it all, I possess a Spirit of Love. Thank you Mr. Denzel and may you live to see 90 plus years old. Selah and Shalom. Abanakani - say it loud I'm black and I'm smart. Peace out my family. To all my brothers and Sisters from Africa may Prosperity cling to you and your children to the 6th generation.

  • I'm amused viewers get a slight satisfaction listening to communist propaganda as half-baked intellectual fodder. Biko's words are empty. Africa is still poor, and they sold their land to the CCP (Communist Chinese Party). Africans just switched masters from white europeans to communist China

    • One of few in the comments who acknowledges this as propaganda, it does have a positive aspect to it. He's not being violent and emotional. Which is the only take away the superficial are going to get from it.

  • It's becoming clearer, black communists doesn't have any desire for racial harmony. I've observed South Africa devolved into poverty, while their corrupted black leaders only enriched themselves. In Zimbabwe, which was once regarded as a bread basket of Africa can't even feed its people after Mugabe confiscated white owned lands.

  • The scene demonstrated the atrocities of the Anglo/Boer occupation of South Africa and its Apartheid system. Imagine being subjected to a legal system designed to oppress the indigenous peoples. This movie should make your blood boil and praise Mandela for his suffering for the Black South African. I could go on but the movie does the reality little justice regardless of Denzel’s stellar performance.

  • (Acts 10:34,35) "At this, Peter began to speak, and he said: 'Now I truly understand that God is not partial, but in every nation, the man who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him.'" If every person were a genuine disciple of Christ, racism would not exist. The Bible teaches there is no partiality with God. He requires people to see their fellow as equal. Jesus said the second greatest commandment is, "You must love your neighbor as yourself." It doesn't say anything about loving them only if they have the same skin color. Further, Jesus said, "You heard that it was said: 'You must love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' However, I say to you: Continue to love your enemies, and to pray for those who persecute you, so that you may prove yourselves sons of your Father who is in the heavens since he makes his sun rise on both the wicked and the good, and makes it rain on both the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those loving you, what reward do you have? Are not also the tax collectors doing the same thing? And if you greet your brothers only, what extraordinary something are you doing? Are not even the people of the nations doing the same thing?" (Matthew 5:43-47) The Bible tells us to love and pray for our enemies! It provides NO EXCEPTIONS for racism (which is a form of hatred, and hatred is a form of violence). Anyone who engages in such actions constitutes themselves an enemy of God. (Psalms 11:5) "Jehovah examines the righteous one as well as the wicked one; He hates anyone who loves violence."
