Hack #5

From listening to lecture and of course watching the movie in which Tom Hanks became famous for The Black Power movement is something we have all heard of. In this clip from Forest Gump where Jenny takes him to black panther meet up he is treated poorly by the members he is patted down and they think he is there to cause problems. When his best friend is African-American who was named Bubba and who he ends up creating a legacy at the end of the movie by opening up a shrimp company in honor of his friend. This shows not to judge a book by its cover and because Forest may have been a southern white man he was not racist and viewed people as equals.
