Black Klansman review reblog.
Put on your bell bottoms, 3.5 jive turkeys. It’s time for a review of Spike Lee’s latest joint.
It’s the 1970s and a young Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) has become the first black police officer on the Colorado Springs force. Alas, his dreams of defeating villains with kung-fu moves gleamed from his favorite flicks come to a grinding halt when he’s assigned to the epically boring records room.
One day, whilst fending off boredom by reading a newspaper, he spots a recruitment ad for the Ku Klux Klan. On a lark, he calls it, requests information on how to join and down the rabbit hole he goes.
