Watch Chi-Raq - Alternative Versions.
On it's own it's a goofy yet poignant musical. A little boring, if I'm
But with the name "Chi-Raq" and it being set in Chicago and it dealing
with the gun violence in Chicago, the movie is worse than just bad.
Chiraq is a real term that real kids in real bad neighborhoods came up
with to describe their environment. Chicago's murder rate doesn't look
like much when taken as a whole but when you realize that 99% of it
occurred in just a few of Chicago's many neighborhoods, you'll
understand why those unfortunate kids from those neighborhoods chose
this term. These are not white neighborhoods, mind you, remember that
Chicago is the most segregated city in America. These kids really have
seen more literal dead bodies growing up than most soldiers have seen
in Iraq. The term is as offensive and loud as possible because it's
meant to get your attention. It is a very literal cry for actual help
in every sense of the word.
Spike Lee takes this term and honors the meaning behind it by
completely ignoring those cries for help. He chooses to use Chicago to
tell some story about how a sex strike maybe solved a civil war one
time so yeah that could totally solve all the dead bodies that pile up
in Englewood and Fuller Park every year. And the corrupt governmental
system keeping it secret and confined to black neighborhoods.
The most obvious example of Spike Lee completely missing what's really
going on in the *real* Chiraq is the fact that the gangs in his film
beef over colors. Don't nobody care what colors you wear in Chiraq,
your chances of being killed are the same regardless. That's some goofy
west coast crap. Modern gangs in the real Chiraq form simply out of
safety in numbers. Activities vary set by set, block by block. Conflict
typically stems from disputes over sex and violence. This is what
motivates *most* violence in America, however when it happens on the
South Side, it gets labeled "gangland violence" and then gets mostly
ignored by media outlets.
Simple things get overlooked like how a lot of these deaths could be
avoided simply by building a closer trauma center to these
neighborhoods so it doesn't take an ambulance over an hour to get to
the scene. How more educational and work force centers can provide
direction to directionless kids with no hope. How proper legal
representation and education could ensure we're not occasionally
sending innocent kids to jail to learn how to become a savage along
with the rest of them. These are all common things you'll find missing
from most of these consistently super high crime areas in Chicago.
It's gotten bad in Chicago. And when I say bad, I mean real bad.
Someone needs to shine a light on what's really going on because it's
gone way beyond any other place in America. Way worse than you're
imagining. The only thing a sex strike would do on the South Side is
make the already high sexual assault rate climb even higher. And that's
just real talk.
Which Spike Lee's "Chi-Raq" continues to ignore by examining none of
those things. In Spike Lee's world, it's almost like he's saying it's
black people's fault the murder rate is so high in places like Austin
and West Englewood. Like he's saying "You girls maybe need to stop
putting out so much, that's the problem." 1 out of 10 stars, no
sympathy for those who chose to ignore real cries for real help from an
entire group of disenfranchised youth.
