Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story

I watched Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story and saw something pretty dumb.

The photo is taken from one of the scenes from the movie.  Lee is a student at a university and wants to use the workout facilities. The stereotypical alpha males deny Lee from working out and also thrown in some racist comments. Which is where I kind of had a problem. This movie is set in 60s…THE 1960s!  I don’t understand why a black person would be placed in this scene. As if he was on top of the social ladder. It’s clear in the movie is set in a time period when white people were not exactly rocking with black people.  To think something like this could even happen is ridiculous.

I couldn’t help but laugh at this scene.
