Black male humanityshown in ‘Fruitvale’
Oscar Grant did not deserve to die.This is the central message of “Fruitvale Station,” a film dramatizingthe real-life case of the young unarmedblack man shot in the back by a whitepolice officer in 2009. It’s a commonmessage, often heard in film and life ingeneral. But the way writer/directorRyan Coogler delivers this message isextraordinary.As portrayed by Michael B. Jordan(beware of plot spoilers ahead) Grantis a great father — and a convictedfelon. He loves his girlfriend — and hecheats on her. He wants to hold down alegal job — and he can’t make it towork on time. He’s a drug dealer whotakes time to make his bed in themorning, a hardened convict and amama’s boy — a thuggish angel.By the time the credits roll, OscarGrant has become one of the rarestartifacts in American culture: a three-dimensional portrait of a young blackmale — a human being.Which raises the question: If Grantwas a real person, what about all theseother young black males rendered ascardboard cutouts by our merciless cul-ture? What other humanity are wemissing?“Everyone either made Oscar out tobe a saint, depending on whatevertheir political agenda was, and on theother side theymade him out to bethis villain,”Coogler said in aninterview.“Everything hehad ever donewrong in his lifewas magnified,”Coogler said. “Hewas just a criminal,a thug, a drug dealer, and he deservedwhat he got. You live that type of lifestyle, you get what you deserve.His humanity was lost.”Grant was 22 years old in the earlyhours of New Year’s Day, returninghome to Oakland with his girl andother friends. In the film, a fight startson the train when Grant encounters anenemy from prison. Police detainedGrant and his friends on the platformof the Fruitvale station.The police are abusive; Grant andfriends respond with belligerence.Grant is being held face down on theplatform, unarmed and struggling,when the officer shoots him once inthe back. Numerous bystanders cap-tured the scene on video.That’s the first scene of the film,using real video shot by bystanders.Then it jumps backwards one day to fillin the blanks of an average brother, toillustrate the mundane moments withfamily, friends and strangers that con-stitute real life.When Grant’s death hit the news,what much of the public saw was a con-victed drug dealer who had beenreleased from prison three monthsbefore his death. They saw a trouble-maker who police said was resistingarrest. They didn’t see everything elsethat’s in “Fruitvale Station.”“If there’s one thing missing in ourcountry, it’s an acknowledgment of the broad humanity of black folks,”Ta-Nehisi Coates recently wrote on hisblog at TheAtlantic.com. “Racism —and anti-black racism in particular —is the belief that there’s somethingwrong with black people.”The remedy: “Close the gap betweenwhat they see and who we really are,”Coates wrote.Asked what it felt like to close thatgap, the actor Jordan said, “It felt real.It felt like I was telling a story foryoung African-American males whoare stereotyped and judged before peo-ple get a chance to know them.”“We wanted to let people know whothis guy was through the people whoknew him the best,” Jordan said.“Show the good, bad and the ugly.Flaws and all.”“Fruitvale Station” is not unprece-dented. It’s part of a recent wave of independent black films that are put-ting authentic black characters onmore screens than ever.This can make a difference in howblack men are perceived in the realworld, said black filmmaker AvaDuVernay.

ohn Sutter was a ambitious man whowanted to carve out his personal king-dom in the California wilds of theSacramento Valley. He amassed an enormousfortune and acquired vast acres of land in theValley and he almost achieved his goalexcept for one historical event that spoiledhis plans — the California gold rush.Born in Baden, Germany in 1803, hisfather was born in Switzerland and Johnmoved there for schooling. He later joinedthe Swiss army and became a captain of theartillery. Things went well for Sutter and hemarried Annette Dubeld at 23. His wife’smother was rich and she set him up in astore business. Sutter proceeded to run thebusiness into the ground with enormousdebt. He was faced with a dilemma now —should he stay and raise his five children orshould he run away? Rather than be throwninto the debtors jail, he chose to leave thecountry and his family and arrived in NewYork in 1834. He became restless andmoved to St. Louis then on to Santa Fe,N.M. territory and finally entered Westport,Oregon Territory. Next he was found in FortVancouver in April 1838.He wanted to go to Yerba Buena to fulfillhis dream of starting a new state but theonly boat available was going to Hawaii.He took the offer hoping to get a boat toYerba Buena but the only boat out of Hawaiiwas going to Sitka, Alaska. He picked upgoods (on credit of course) he felt he couldsell in California for a profit while waitingto leave. Finally, he got a boat toCalifornia and arrived in Yerba Buena onJuly 1, 1839. At this time, California had1,000 Europeans and 10,000 NativeAmericans. Sutter needed permission fromgovernor Juan Bautista Alvarado to stay inCalifornia and to acquire a land grant from
