American History X

Danny is killed by the same black guy whose face he blew smoke in, in the bathroom. Derek has a sinking feeling something went wrong, and decides to go back to Danny's school. He finds his brother in the bathroom stall, bloodied, and holds him in his arm. A voiceover of Danny reads the conclusion of his paper, saying that despite being raised a racist, that "hate is baggage." Derek stays out of the D.O.C, from that moment on.

Continuity mistake: When Danny and Derek are taking down the Nazi-posters in Danny's room, the big poster above the computer is a very large Nazi flag that takes up about one fifth of the entire wall. During one of the shots in which all other smaller posters are being taken down, it is not there, and then it reappears and is the last one they take down.

Bob Sweeney: There was a moment, when I used to blame everything and everyone for all the pain and suffering and vile things that happened to me, that I saw happen to my people. Used to blame everybody. Blamed White people, blamed society, blamed God. I didn't get no answers 'cause I was asking the wrong questions. You have to ask the right questions.
Derek Vinyard: Like what?
Bob Sweeney: Has anything you've done made your life better?

Question: What happened to Little Henry after he killed Danny in the bathroom?

Answer: We don't find that out. It happens right at the end of the film, and we don't get to see the aftermath.

Answer: This is what I'm trying to figure out - when he shot Danny he disappeared, he probably got away with it or he was arrested later on.

Answer: In the original ending he was supposed to be arrested. It is possible that he was arrested in the final version of the film too.
