btvs-season-11-2-census

Teased at the end of the season’s first issue, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eleven #2 reveals where the real conflict is going to come this year. Unable to find the source of the dragon which destroyed much of San Fransisco, the Scoobies also spend time putting out small fires of mobs attacking witches and demons, blaming them for the recent troubles. As tensions rise across the country, the United States Government steps in with a solution: a census to register all magic and other-dimensional individuals. However as conflicts keep simmering, the government decides a more drastic “temporary” solution may be in order.

13th-posterTaking its name from the 13th Amendment, the documentary from writer/director Ava DuVernay examines the role race plays in the criminal justice system of the United States and how it is used to continue the subjugation of African Americans following the end of slavery. DuVernay makes a compelling case with his film, documenting the racial inequality within the United States with statistics and facts while examining the self-enforcing logistics of the problem.

Connecting Jim Crow laws with higher arrests and convictions of African Americans, DuVernay attacks the system which was designed to continue to view those with a darker skin color as worth only three-fifths of a white man. Along the way he also touches on Southern propaganda and political maneuverings which turned racism into a war on crime.

This forces Henry (Lou Diamond Phillips) and Mathias (Zahn McClarnon) to walk a tightrope not only to get Walt off Hector as a suspect in the murder but to also reconsider his suspicions that Mathias is the one taking justice into his own hands.
