We all have a problematic favorite or two. It's those movies that we knew were racist or problematic but there's something about it that you can't help but like it anyway. We're talking about all those problematic favorites that make up our American media, from childhood storybooks to the hip-hop music that makes us wonder where the line is when it comes to cultural appropriation. The Pacific Underground crew shares their problematic favorites, exploring why we're drawn to them and the importance of media literacy.
