Filming for Entertainment

Film industry was growing and there was enormous profit made from this industry. It displayed the class and ethnic characters of many people. Film had to realize that America was a racist country and they had to realize the backfire it might create such as the movie called "Birth of a Nation". This movie displayed the Ku Klux Klan as the heroes of the movie by fighting the blacks. They depicted blacks of being stupid and imbeciles. They also exhibited mulatto blacks to be a dangerous rival because he was smart and beastly. Blacks did not take this movie very lightly. Early movies took a lot of backfire not only by racism but by the morals of people's lives. Other movies displayed gangsters killing and shooting each other and the gangster lives at the end. He gets away free and does not go to jail or get any penalty. Parents and others did not like how the gangster was being praised and was looked at as great hero. Films in the early ages had to watch what they put out because it could cause an uproar with the American society
