“Chiraq”
The film “Chiraq” represent the segregation of African American people. It shows black people have lack of opportunities because of their race. If they apply for a job they are less likely to get hired because of the way society portrays black people. America in general focuses a lot on your race.

Black people don’t have any culture to advise them on what to go after either.
The people on the south side are very different compared to other people's lives. The film represents their daily life routine. Every day in th...
