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.
Question: What was the point of the ending? What message was it trying to send? We have a whole movie sending an anti-racist message, but then a black guy kills Danny for blowing smoke in his face. I'm sure this wasn't the movie's intention, but it kinda seems like we're supposed to believe Derek was originally right and shouldn't have changed.MikeH
