Description

Pattern or Practice peels the veneer off that shoddy pretense and provides a stark view of what institutionalized racism looks like. A small Midwestern town, once a manufacturing powerhouse, is a backsliding, post-industrial community with a race problem so pervasive that disbelief is nearly always the observer’s first reaction. By the time the final credits are rolling, that disbelief is replaced by anger, disgust, perhaps shame and hopefully a desire for change.

Additional Information
The material covered in the film (shocking as it is) is a true story of the pattern used to boldly discriminate against African Americans and Hispanic business owners and the strength of the persecuted. Pattern or Practice goes beyond the street protests of Ferguson and Staten Island and into the underbelly of local government. It’s a portrait of the effects of government corruption and institutionalize racism, and how it’s enabled by local officials detachment from one’s community and enhanced by those with something to gain.
