Remember the Titans Themes
Transcript of Remember the Titans Themes
In the movie, it took the team a lot to overcome their racial differences. Thanks to the run to the Civil War cemetery, the shower scene and characters like Louie and Sunshine the team eventually realized that there's no reason to be prejudiced towards each other. Of course society is still working towards overcoming racism, but we must realize our past accomplishments and look towards a more positive future.
In the movie Remember the Titans, you see team bonding as a struggle from the beginning. They can’t bond together as a team since they can’t deal with the other race. In the scene where they begin to leave for the camp they all get on a bus, but you see all the whites on one, and all the blacks on another. As they come back, you see them mixed up and finally beginning to bond together. Without the bonding the team would not work and prove that they could not mix schools. Today, you see many schools that have mixed race and where the black and whites bond together as a football team, one example being Holy Cross.
In the shower scene, Julius starts making jokes about Gerry's mom which entirely offends him. Julius, used to being teased, sees no problem along with the other black boys while most of the other white boys are offended. Louie provides the bridge to the gap between the two creating the humor intended and ultimately bonding the team together.
The Titans had many differences to overcome including race, culture, and economic backgrounds. No one cared about skin color, history, or economic backgrounds. The Titans were forced to press on and uphold their pride and dignity. As a result of overcoming adversity, the Titans developed a respect for all races that would later allow them to become better adults.
