Gran Torino is a racist movie which is directed by Client Eastwood which is also the lead actor of the movie. The character of Eastwood has been depicted as a racist. This is because of the following reasons:
• His character does not have any affection in bonding with his parish parents, which is a representation of racism. He also does not has any affection for his grand children who are shallow.
• The character seems to be incapable of interacting with any non-white person. This is a clear instinct of racism. From the very beginning to end, he has been shown to be a racist bigot in the movie (Schein & Thoj,2009).
• His character represents a particular form of while masculinity which is completely based on racism which forms a constitutive part of his character. Each and every time he has used racism in the movie. At one point of time, he has shown to use such extensive racism, that he is referred to as a white devil in the movie.
I do not believe that an individual who is not a racist uses the racist language. A person who is not a racist does not follows racism in his life. There, he won’t be using racist language. This is because, he won’t even think anything related to racism and these thought would never come to his minds (Jalao,2010). If he does not differentiates between the races then how he can be expected to speak something which indicates the differences between the races.
In the movie, Eastwood’s character speaks about racism because of his believes in racism. In every point in his life, he is shown to be effected from racism (Dargis,2008). The thoughts related to racism remain in his mind throughout. Hence, the same is reflected in his words as well. On every account he speaks racist.
