Re: “Denzel Washington directs August Wilson's Fences

I recently saw "Fences" and was totally shocked by the meanness of Denzel Washington's character. I like movies that aren't typical Hollywood,The but as a white woman who has not been prejudiced since the beginning of my life, I couldn't sympathize with Denzel's character. I grew up in the forties, graduated from high school in the fifties and got married in the sixties. I have had interactions with and friends who are black. When a black friend of mine and I went to see " The Color Purple", she was very upset with the scene where Whoppi Goldberg's character is raped by her stepfather. Maybe I don't want to see negative things about black people, either.
