#51: Getting Into GET OUT (With Special Guests Lakeith Stanfield and Jay Smooth)

When was the last time you sat in a movie theater cowering in fear, then the next minute you’re laughing — and the whole time you’re getting schooled about racial fear in a “post-racial America?” For us, at In The Thick, it was this past weekend, when we saw Get Out, the #1 movie in the U.S.

We sat down with Lakeith Stanfield of Get Out (and FX’s Atlanta) and viral social commentator/video blogger Jay Smooth to tackle the movie’s perception of white liberals, the theme of co-opting black bodies, and the relationship of fear and humor.
