I want to thank you so much for the information, and for having the ability to explain it without being preachy. Your analogy was spot on! I actually watched it a few times. As a woman in an oftentimes marginalized group, hearing you (a white man) explain systemic racism in such a way that wouldn’t make other white men defensive or feel attacked. I actually want to show this to a couple of people, just so they can understand that the things that they do and say can really negatively affect others. The information was invaluable. I love watching all of your videos, but this one was incredible!

There are two The Shining references you've missed, the font and the TV in the middle of the room which doesn't seem to be connected anywhere, I would also include the camera movements that goth rough doors or walls still keeping their distance (best way I came up for describing it srrry if it's vague) but I'm not 100% sure

I think the solution to getting rid of systemic racism is to understand that to change everything is difficult. If the white house was built by black, what do we do? Break it down? It's already built and it's where the president sits. I saw Obama's election more-so as a sign of "We don't think like that anymore." Because most don't. I think lots of people do small racist things without realizing it, but I also think if you look for racism you'll find it in even the smallest things.

The only problem with the "our intention doesnt matter if the outcome is problematic" is that ANY person can choose ANY outcome-something innocuous and nice can be chosen as offensive because the person is a bitchy prick.
Hell thats how PC police go after comedy "despite your intention is to laugh at everyone and everything I FIND IT OFFENSIVE-SO NO MAKING JOKE ABOUT ME OR MY RACE!"
Sooooooo no that whole "intentions dont matter" bit is a problem. A phrase simple as "want some popcorn" can be offensive because "i have braces and cant have popcorn".
Sorry to say but outright saying intentions dont matter if the outcome is bad allows this idea of having people be all feels over reals....
Plus i notice this double speak crap all the time. If "white privilege" is not a term not to bring one group of people down but to bring everyone up THEN WHY NOT JUST CALL IT FUCKING RICH PRIVILEGE OR SOMETHING why use words that immediately imply (hell not even apply-put those two words together and you have a targeted phrase-its the same bullshit with manspreading or mansplaining-"its about shutting up pricks" then why is it gender targeted specifc language then?!) that its targeted at bringing down one group?!
Look i get whats being said but for this idea that systematic racism is a thing pushes this idea that those who arent white cant succeed AND I HAVE SEEN PLENTY OF PEOPLE WHO TAKE IT THAT WAY when literally the existence of Get Out destroys that sentiment-showing a so called system where noone that isnt white cant succeed at anything is bullshit.
Look if its about systems that keep poor people down in general THEN WHY IS RACISM BEING BROUGHT INTO IT.
Its a bullshit thing of twisting definitions and using double speak. Why not just call things what they are instead of giving things a newer more hateful and targeted label and change the known definition into something less harsh? Because people who create these terms know thats bullshit and create these terms to create race divides to keep us divided from one another instead of coming together to call out their bullshit.
I also love how jordan peele targets specifcally left wing people here because this film can be a great metaphor for how black people are paraded around by rich white people in Hollywood to show off how woke and not racist they are when they themselves are the racists not fixing the system in Hollywood because they benefit from making themselves look good.
Dont see the parallel? Look at how disney treated john boyegas character in star wars-pushed a black character to parade around to make more money and did nothing with him and even made him smaller in advertising to make more money in racist china. Benefiting off black people as they see fit.
If anything its the society that is Hollywood doing most of the racist and sexist shit they claim the rest of america is doing. I mean they are mostly narcissists who constantly shout out shit for clout and as seen through metoo and male feminists and disney and other corporations (and news media and journalists too) they project their psychopathic ways onto the rest of us-the plebs. I mean they are the types of people saying they are less privileged than a homeless white person which is disgustingly evil and stupid.
For that last one i have two videos i can lead to-one with a kotaku article being read-and one with a video reaction of a black actor saying that shit.

You know as a black person (I am from South Africa btw 🇿🇦 😊)... that disclaimer means so much... he mentions how there is an almost constant battle with interactions of 1. Not trying to escalate an already personally frustrating situation and 2. The sheer exhaustion of having to keep face while in a personally frustrating situation... that acknowledgment and the disclaimer shows so much comprehension, understanding, and respect to the unique struggle, that people have often told me and many other black folk, that that struggle is “exaggerated”, or “over reacting”, or even “untrue”...
When bringing up an issue regarding race, I have often been met with defensiveness and accountability, and finally acknowledgement only falling on me.
The only reason I want these conversations to happen is not for the white folk I am having this conversation with to feel villainised, but only to have them understand what happened and why and how it still effects black folk today...
Understanding... Compassion... Empathy...
Not judgement and dismissive behaviour, which is what I am often met with
So thank you to you and to those very few I have had the pleasure to experience and share an understanding and compassion for my past, white folks past and both of our present states in a complex and complicated society built on alot of fucked up shit
You have truly touched my soul

Classic racism is like the KKK, which is still prevalent in the US. Modern racism is generalising a race to specific traits, like people on the extreme left only see black people as oppressed and all need rescuing (this is why when a country in Africa is shown in Hollywood/media it is only shown as poor and desolate but doesn't show that there are rich countries in Africa with high percentage growth in their GDP's, because it doesn't fit the narrative of the extreme left)

Ok so I like looking at the progress of every good video I watch with this movie I look at the art and message yes and just saying the our cinema wins guy can't be woke like myself is saying that dogs shouldn't meow. I know they can't but does it mean they really can't and what I mean is you shouldn't be mad if he gets something wrong with these many many understanding of racist shit the Jordan Peele carefully constructed. If everyone who knows the faults dealing with race were more understanding and could compute it better in this day and age would be amazing but unfortunately we have this. And 729 dislikes. Mhm I didn't know where I was going with this statement continue.

I never even really thought about it but the ending with police lights, even when I watched it when I was younger and didn’t really know a lot about racism but at the end I always thought “Oh no, he’s going to get arrested”. Whenever police lights are shown and there’s a black character everyone knows it’s not going to be good. I know it’s been said but there’s so many subconscious things everyone thinks

I have to appreciate your points, and growing up in a... Fox News household, I guess you could say, recently I've kind of let myself hear the other side out when before I'd tell them to shut up. My parents aren't racists, after all my half brother is polynesian and... I don't wanna use the "they have plenty of X friends" example, but the way they interact with said X friends to me is a clear indication of them not being racist. It is not that they have to specify it, but in their case, the way they treat them is proof, and how I learned race doesn't mean jack is proof of the non racism. But I've grown up hearing,"The plight is exaggerated," and "They're blaming you for this and that," and when I was young I was called racist all day up and down for disliking Obama. To be clear his race had ZILCH to do with my (lack of) approval of him... In any case, it almost... I dunno, bothered me, that you kept insisting this and that is real, but recent events have perhaps turned my eyes towards that fact. Maybe it IS real and "they" (be it this or that organization of usually liberal minded people) aren't out to call me a slave owner and take all my money, which I mean, screw off I didn't do sh*t to you. But I feel like we are looking so so far into a leveled solution to solve racism when that simply is not viable for a societal issue. For example, something like police overreach and excessive force are something that a leveled solution can solve, especially considering that it, despite what certain voices tell you, affects all races, but some groups more than others. I heard recently that statistically there are a lot more hands on incidents with black people, which the media often does lie about those "Unarmed black man" incidents (See Donut Operator's Liar Liar series for proof) so take it with a grain of salt. But we also know that some of these cases, it was someone MAYBE not heeding the fact that several firearms were trained on them and reaching into their pockets for a wallet to prevent them being shot, which, bad move, but I still don't agree with shooting someone for reaching into their pocket. As a gun owning and carrying citizen, if I shot someone for reaching into their pocket I'd be toast, but cops often get off Scot free because they MIGHT have been a threat, when my own training tells me to confirm the threat BEFORE pulling out the gun, much less pulling the trigger. Does that disproportionally affect black people? I don't know, the media makes it seem like that, I simply don't have the statistics, but it might because even though police kill far more white people, black people are like 14% of the population so of course the numbers are skewed. Point is, that issue can be solved with a shift in power and an INCREASE in funding for better training (yeah that's right, defunding the police will just make them worse), or at the very least a reallocation of funds towards extra range time and target discretion drills.
But can racism be solved like that? No. You know how we solve racism? By every single one of us leaving it behind, forgetting skin color is even a concept, by removing things like affirmative action and tokenism and every little thing that reminds us of skin color. See why that is difficult to solve? It is a blending and dissemination of culture, and that is a problem for a lot of people. For example I have a lot of German and British in my line, forgetting the culture I know is all but unheard of. My idea? Removing the race from that culture. Brits and Germans are traditionally white. Aaaaand? So what? If my mexican/native American buddy wants to celebrate Nov 5 with me and eat clotted cream and spotted dick then so be it! Africans are traditionally black, but so what if I wanna join in and enjoy a tradition from tribal African culture, or Hell, a movie like Black Panther? I love Asian food, I love the concept of tribal cultures (African or not) and sugar skulls are such a beautiful art piece that I almost obsess over them. What I'm saying is, keep your traditions, but never EVER feel or discourage(d) someone for being the wrong skin color to enjoy this or that, or to do this or that, or whatever.

Considering cinemawins' historically strong avoidance of language, I feel like the last 2 words of the conclusion in a way say more than part 1 and part 2 combined on his feelings about this subject. I'm beginning to get a better idea of the extent of all this myself, but i think it's hard to argue that for such a compromise as that, few subjects are more deserving of it.

I did an essay on this film at school. First off, I think this film is fucking amazing, and the symbolism and nuances surrounding its message of systematic racism as well as the different forms of racism with society is fucking amazing. I think Peeles explanation and depiction on racism shows that at times, the overcompensation for the “I’m not racist” statement being part of your consistent conversation with a black person, can be just as marginalising as being outrightly racist. The Armitage’s and their “friends,” or “customers” almost idolise black people and see them on a higher plain, don’t see the irony in the fact that using this as an explanation for their non racist views, are inadvertently being racist. In a more obvious way, I also think it simultaneously displays how white people profit and benefit from the misfortune of black people. But I don’t wanna write another essay hahaha

Every time I hear about privilege, all I can think about is the time a close friend and I were screwed, in different ways.
Warning: word wall ahead. Turn back while you can.
He and I were both applying to a scholarship with multiple awards. He was straight-up better than me by all the published metrics the scholarship asked for, so I was just hoping that I'd make it along with him. Then they got in touch with each of us. I made it, he didn't. I asked him why. He said he had no idea. I felt really bad for him, and I thought this wasn't right. By all relevant metrics, I was an inferior candidate. So I got in touch with the people providing it. They sent me a pamphlet with FAQs. I didn't think I'd see anything useful, but I read it anyway. Found a section called 'Diversity Mission'. I read it. It said something to the effect of 'we have made sure to guarantee that individuals of any background have an equal opportunity to be awarded the scholarship'. I started to get a bad feeling and did some googling. My friend got screwed because of a quota. Quotas - the very thing we decided would be used to make sure we didn't judge people based on sex, gender, race, sexual orientation, whatever, had done just that. They had judged that despite him being literally a better candidate, I (an Asian, asexual, woman) deserved a scholarship and he (a white, heterosexual, man) did not.
And if that's not discrimination, I don't know what is.
So he got screwed because of his colour BY THE VERY MECHANISM DESIGNED TO PREVENT PEOPLE GETTING SCREWED BECAUSE OF THEIR COLOUR.
As for me? I felt awful. So awful that I had to go to therapy, and still suffer from severe bouts of self-blame and depression. He couldn't go to university because of this. It makes no sense, I know, but I felt - still feel - like I betrayed him, even though that couldn't be further from the truth. I know that, rationally. It doesn't help. And - perhaps ironically - the person who was there for me the most was the same guy. He's a hero, and honestly just writing about it hurts.
We can't fight institutional discrimination the way 'woke' organizations seem to want to with quotas and the like. Let me tell you, literal 'equality' doesn't feel much like equality. And I was the one who supposedly benefitted from this whole thing. I don't feel like I benefitted. I feel like an impostor, and like someone who doesn't deserve what I got.
Breaking the wheel that is institutionalized discrimination is undoubtedly a good thing. I just feel like we're not breaking the wheel. We're just replacing it with a different one.

Chavin Haines

@Harley O’keefe I'm sorry if there was a lack of clarity in how I expressed myself. What I mean to say more clearly, is that while the quota system is discriminatory and bad, the lack of any equalizing effort beforehand was even more discriminatory and bad. Quotas are not a good solution, but that doesn't mean the problem isn't real. White privilege, in terms of education, is real. Acknowledging that point, we can discuss a better solution than quotas, which are simultaneously are too much (restricting better applicants because of their skin color) and not enough (don't address the root of the problem and so are ultimately ineffective at solving the inequality). Let me attempt to use an analogy. The American system is like a marathon, wherein the groups that have enjoyed privilege for decades/centuries started 20 minutes earlier than those who have been/are oppressed. The quotas system is like moving the 'finish line' for the people who started later a mile earlier. It doesn't really solve the problem, and while it's a step towards finding a solution, still wildly unfair. We need a solution that lets the people who started the race later catch up (a golf cart that carries them to the rest of the runners), or one that ends the broken race entirely, to start a new and fair one. If you still think I'm a fool, that's fine. But I appreciate you taking the time to try and understand my point of view all the same.

Let me begin by saying I don't mean to discount or diminish your experience or your feelings about what happened to you or your friend, and that I agree with your general point that quotas are a bad solution that fix a symptom of the problem without addressing the root causes. However, I'd like to share my perspective as a Caucasian heterosexual cisgendered male who experienced something similar with being passed over on opportunity to meet a quota, and explain why I think the quota situation is not as bad as it seems and why you should feel far from guilty or like an 'imposter' for what happened (beyond it of course not being out of your control). Privilege is a difficult subject, because it's hard to concretely define and declaring sweeping generalities about privilege based on race will inevitably lead to outcry from those who have suffered. Poor white people often really struggle to accept they've been privileged because they've felt so powerfully economically oppressed. But money isn't the only form of privilege. To remove towards my point here, a false assumption is often made in denying privilege that "I worked hard for what I have", and one of the most difficult things to recognize is that hard work and privilege are not mutually exclusive. The reason for quotas not being quite as terrible as they seem is the following: The problem presented with quotas as you point out is that candidates that are better by all other metrics can lose spots to those that lack in other metrics but are 'diverse'. But if you acknowledge that hard work and privilege aren't mutually exclusively, you realize that the starting point in the race for many people of color is so far behind the average Caucasian in America that it ISN'T fair to use the same metrics for both. The quota system is supposed to allow people who worked hard despite their disadvantages and narrowed the gap between those that started the 'race' early, to not be cut off because they didn't catch up. If I've failed to explain this well I apologize. My point is that, when I was passed up for a college for this very reason, after witnessing several less qualified on paper people make it in, I was initially upset at the injustice. But reducing people just to the numbers of their capabilities with the other metrics and ignoring that some people are demographically much more likely to have had struggles working multiple jobs through high school, or uneducated parents, or no money for school supplies, or a worse school district, isn't actually fair either. I worked hard to be the student I was, but I had a father who instilled in me from a very young age the value and importance of education, and I didn't have to work through high school to support my family. In many ways I had privilege, and acknowledging that someone may have worked harder or been smarter than I was and still not have scored as well on the metrics because of where they came from was hard for me to understand. But this is my interpretation of my own experience. Thank you for your comment and thank CinemaWins for this excellent video. TL;DR: The quota system doesn't actually fix the unfair system that disadvantages some and privileges other, but it seeks to consider that system in its calculation for acceptance/admittance. This is clearly an imperfect system, but no matter how 'unjust' it feels on a personal level, on a systemic one it's actually a step in the right-ish direction.

This. We should focus on things like making Public schools all funded the same rather than put arbitrary quotas in things.

I am going to say I am typing thing before the video while it’s still going. Personally I don’t really care about the idea of systemic racism or fundamental racism even matters. Personally as a white guy from a poor family that dealt with legal issues a lot, I just view people as people there are crappy people in all races and cultures and creeds. But on that same note yes there is racist in the world and yea it crappy but little by little we as humans are pushing forward it may not seem like it a lot of the time but we are. And I think I understand what your saying as in, yea it is a thing still and it shouldn’t be, but through little action every day we can bridge the gap between cultural divides and truly come to a place of understanding. I don’t think we should tip toe around the subject simply because all that does is make everyone around on edge. As if they are to scared to say something that might offend someone. At the end of the day I will respect someone who speaks there mind regardless how I feel about it so much more than someone who self censors themself. To me personally that is someone i capfuls talk with and get to know who they are and why they are who they are much easier. It is as if there is no veil that need to be lifted to understand them. And in the end just understanding someone and how they feel and how they came to feel that way is 90% the battle. So for anyone who has made it this far in my comment which will be like 3 of you haha, extend a hand to someone even if you disagree with them. Learn from them and see if maybe you can understand what their heart is saying before they fall into a abyss. Also people who are shitting on this guy go fuck yourselves. The dude is a genuinely nice guy who just wants the world to enjoy movies with people they care about. He is not some “racist” or some shit like that. He just a good guy trying to do the right thing be all. With that my friend I bid you a due.

the fact that you mentioned a lot of dehumanizing ways that people communicate and mention other human's race , their physicality , or anything that's different sets up the whole concept of systematic racism , sexism , ignorance , considering the fact that what people say and their intention was not to hurt someone explains the concept of get out in a very different light as i first saw it in. It explains that saying those things might be normal for someone since they've grown up like that , which is really sad.

Despite the disclaimer you gave, almost everything you said in this video in regards to racism and micro aggressions was extremely accurate. I wish more people would take the time to understand and empathize on that level, the world would certainly be a better place. Thank you for being an outstanding human being.

i liked that not only are you critical of the system you benefit from, you're critical of yourself. the "bingo" comment in the last video rubbed me the wrong way, even though i knew it was unintentional. realizing that we don't always have to be right is so important

Until the conversation moves to actually realistically contemplate reparation, there is nothing to say. Edit: Also, this was only about white privilege. This topic understandably didn't touch male privilege. Straight privilege. Cis privilege. Things that can't be solved with just some easy money. In other words, the world we live in is one, big, fuck.

3:22 The fact that you willfully and respectfully admitted you are unable to truly understand what the black community goes through is sufficient enough.
The perpetual refusal to even recognize the suffering of the black community, let alone draw attention to it, is the reason we continue to suffer. Thank you for not being one of those people.

I'll be honest, I'm barely an adult and I don't know much about the world, I have never seen racism aside from some comments from my stepfather and he has said it is a problem he is trying to fix and has made improvements on that I have seen. The point is that I have never seen racism or I'm not perceptive enough to notice, so for anyone out there who have been a victim of racism I am sorry especially if I have offended anyone in my life unknowingly... I just honestly don't know what I'm supposed to do.

Can I just say that this video is very refreshing for me considering the current state of our country. Thank you for using your voice and your platform to acknowledge how and why this film is needed for people who rather remain in their blissful ignorance than acknowledging the ugly truth of racism in America: that exists both in her past and present. Thank you for not being a trend follower and choosing to have an open dialogue with your viewers. Not just when its easy and trendy, but when it is hard to do so. I've always been a huge fan of your content, but with this one you've earned my respect. Now imma go rewatch this film...
