Just in time for Thanksgiving. The Oath.

It is a comedy - but the premise is, in it own way, seriously relevant. For anybody paying attention. (i.e. "Standing for the Pledge").

[from Wiki]
In a dystopian future, people across America are required to sign “The Patriot’s Oath”, a controversial political document, to the U.S. president by Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. Meanwhile, a young couple host a Thanksgiving dinner in which political discussion among their family about the Oath erupts into violence and mayhem. Video from :

BTW: already out in theaters, "The Hate U Give". I believe I've mentioned this film before. A powerful story.

The Hate U Give review – a defiant challenge to divided America
4 / 5 stars 4 out of 5 stars.
Amandla Stenberg stars as a young black student whose double life navigating America’s racial politics is brutally questioned ... a-stenberg Video from :

Yep, this is "ripped right from the headlines" of some of the stuff we've been discussing here.

another one but from past headlines Video from :

Not thugs. Not wilding. Not criminals. Not even the Central Park Five. They are Korey, Antron, Raymond, Yusef, Kevin. They are millions of young people of color who are blamed, judged and accused on sight. May 31. A film in four parts about who they really are. WHEN THEY SEE US.
