The Hunt ★★★★½

"He's wearing a wedding ring."
"He's a monster. Honey, he probably uses the 'N' word and not even in private. He probably uses it on Twitter. Those people suffered 400 years of bondage at the hands of that piece of shit's ancestors."
"Those people?"
"Sorry. Black people."
"African Americans."
"Honey, it's..."
"Privilege, Julius."
"It's perfectly fine to call them 'black' again."
"According to who?"
"Which consists, almost exclusively of..."
"White people. We're the fucking worst."

This is the kind of thing that I loved about The Hunt. It doesn't matter which side you're on, we all are guilty of some privilege in some form. We're all guilty of using that privilege to gain something for ourselves, whether we realize it at the time or not and we all come off as assholes when we try to show how upright and forward thinking we are because it always shows the things that we're not upright and forward thinking on.

That doesn't mean that we shouldn't keep trying. Just that we need to keep the judgments of others to a dull roar because when the shoe's on the other foot, we'll be crying just as loudly.
