    Turk 如此激进也是有原因的。他的哥哥被一个黑人所杀,但哪个黑人却没有得到无罪审判,全身而退了。从而他讨厌黑人,他的妻子对黑人也一样的情感。

    Turk’s brother was hit by a car driven by a black man who was high. I don’t understand why he beat his father up, is that because he was a gay?

    Little Davis was dead. Because Ruth hesitated at that time. He could have been alive. I started to understand why people say the story is too heavy. It is hard to say goodbye, especially to a new born. As I am a mother of a three year old, this part is too difficult for me to process. I simply hope every family could be happy, and every baby could be loved as they should be.

    Turk was a lost young man. He beat people up, he sold weapons and he was in jail once.

    I do hope Ruth could be fine. She asked for a lawyer, as now most people were not on her side.

    Turk is totally against Black. Also his father in law and his wife. I don’t like him. But Ruth, what if she didn’t hesitate, could Davis be saved?

    Ruth and Kennedy were not on the same page in this case. Ruth wanted to play the race card, while Kennedy wanted to just talk about medical facts.

    2/20 on court. Ruth has a big chance to win. Kennedy is good at this and she has prepared well.

    人的情感实在是太复杂了。Ruth对Kennedy的态度让人生气,因为社会现象不是K一个人决定的。而K能够去努力理解R的动机,并检讨作为白人,的确从来没有站在黑人的角度去思考过问题和感知社会环境。R想让世界知道他们的处境,他们的努力,他们并没有任何不同,我可以理解,只是这个代价太大了。
