Movie actually starts with two black people walking on the street as they criticize the prejudice they see from people showing them as dangerous people, possible robbers. Next second, they steal car of the attorney. Same people complaining about racial profiling give reason a legitimate reason to be racist to next black person they see. Coming home all upset, his wife sees a Mexican changing the locks in their house and she gets very suspicious that this Mexican person might give the copies of keys to his friends so they can rob the house. Locksmith hears this comment and just handles the new keys without being able to clean his name. In her mind, he is still on the way to his robber friends. On the next scene, one of the police officers tries to change his fathers doctor, but the person on the other line doesn’t care to help him, because she doesn’t need to. This person doesn’t emphasize with his pain, which leads him to think a black person wouldn’t move a thing to help him.
Bullock’s character feels a chill and draws in closer to her husband as they pass Anthony and his friend. Anthony immediately thinks that she made this movement in fear of him because he’s a black man. He continues on, saying that they are in the most lit part of town, surrounded by white people, therefore they should be the ones in fear; then proceeds to highjack the white woman and her husband. Anthony also thinks that buses have windows to show all the minorities who ride public transportation…to humiliate them.
