The movie Just Mercy was released in late 2019, and now the film is available on most streaming platforms… and Warner Brothers has announced that it’s making the movie free to rent on all digital platforms during the month of June.

Just Mercy is based on the true story of Equal Justice Initiative founder Bryan Stevenson’s fight to free Walter McMillan from death row in Alabama and Warner Brothers says in light of recent events, it’s making the movie free to watch as a resource that highlights issues of systematic racism in the criminal justice system.

I saw it last year and it’s a pretty powerful movie with excellent performances by Michael B. Jordan, Jaime Foxx, and Brie Larson.

Here are some of the day’s best deals.

    1. Most of MacDonald’s essays are behind a paywall at a publication I don’t care to support. I am not able to do a great job of reviewing their arguments. The incarceration rate among Black Americans is much higher than average. Why is that?

      If one *is* explicitly racist then one might justify this by asserting they are worse people.
      If one accepts systemic racism then one might say police and judges consider them worse people, or believe that something about how our world is makes that so.
      If one rejects systemic racism or explicit racism, then one might evaluate the world for things to change to correct this wrong.

      I can’t claim to represent all possible justifications, but I have put a pretty broad picnic table out to seat all kinds of really good folk. Which kind are you?

      1. 1 side claims all day long they care about facts & statistics, until it doesn’t support their narrative. This article points out that the numbers don’t support them, this isn’t 1950’s anymore. The justice system has statistically overcorrected, which will only keep these communities in crisis even longer.

        1. I checked Brad’s twitter, and it is cringy to say the least. This man is lost and I hope he will overcome his anger.
          If any honest person wants to hear the truth about races, I invite you to listen to Jesse Lee Peterson’s podcasts.
          People like Jesse are a blessing for the USA.

        2. Well, with this very article and his comments below, I just saw that he could not contain the angst he’s full of anymore.
          That’s a sign of weakness.

        3. My apologies to Brad, but Jeaanot, why don’t you just fuck off? Nobody cares what you think.

  1. You indeed need fiction to “highlights issues of systematic racism in the criminal justice system”.

    1. It’s fiction because it only highlights one variety of unchecked systematic racism in the criminal justice system, when the reality is that every variety is represented there.
      This wouldn’t be a problem if literally every other book, movie, tv show, and news report didn’t do the exact same thing (thus masking any truth of the prevalence of any variety) and call you a monster for trying to point it out.
