Spike Lee’s hugely enjoyable and politically timely film uses this unbelievable case to lift a lid on racism in America, both past and present. It’s frequently hilarious, particularly in highlighting the idiocy of the Klan, but never misses a moment to comment on racial inequality.
Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) was a black Colorado police officer who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan by going undercover, with the help of a white colleague (Adam Driver), to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan.
