Quotations from Lakeview Terrace

Lakeview Terrace is a crime-drama thriller about a racist LAPD sergeant that terroizes his new interracially-married neighbors. The film starts out by showing Abel Turner (the police sergeant) getting his kids off to school. He sees a new couple moving in and ends up not-so-welcoming to them. Directed by Neil LaBute. Starring Samuel L. Jackson, Patrick Wilson, and Kerry Washington.

Lakeview Terrace is a movie that displays what most people know but don't talk about: black people being racist towards whites who marry blacks. Of course, that's not to say all black people think that way, just as not all whites are racist towards blacks, but it has been known to happen. Anyway, below you'll find some fantastic quotes from the film Lakeview Terrace. Check them out.
