Thank you for reading! I think this is why the film bothers me. The fact that he was able to casually commit these heinous crimes as a privileged male basically summons the fact that men of color are rotting in jail for doing much less. I know it’s fiction — but it still proves that the writer of the novel is presenting something that actually does happen because White men are able to get away with shit — with little or no consequences.
