About Craig’s film

Craig Bodeker
Craig Bodeker

A Conversation about Race is filmmaker Craig Bodeker’s answer to then-Senator Obama’s call for such a dialogue. As he states in the opening lines of the film, “I can’t think of another issue that is more artificial, manufactured or manipulated than this whole construct called racism.” In the film, a diverse group of Colorado residents are challenged for their thoughts on:

  • Why do white students score better than black students on standardized tests?
  • Why is the NBA nearly 90% black?
  • Have you ever been “racist”?
  • Are whites better at anything than blacks?
  • Do blacks commit more crimes than whites?
  • Can you name a public figure who is “racist”?
  • Can you give an example of the racism you see in your daily life?
  • How do you feel about immigration from Mexico?

Craig says, “A Conversation About Race is just the starting point. Watch the film, and then have your own conversation about race. You’ll be surprised at what you discover!”
