Short Clip Illustrates the Impact of Addiction

This short clip, entitled “Nuggets” has been said to represent addiction.

My feelings are mixed. While I think I get the overall message, I’m left wondering why the color black continues to be used to represent negativity.

I think the example is good, but find it harder to ignore the larger implications and results that can come from attaching negative associations to blackness.

What do you think?

"Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.
