The new film Fruitvale Station purports to tell the true story of Oscar Grant, a young black man who was shot bu a BART police officer near Oakland on New Year's Day in 2009. The accidental shooting sparked riots and made major news in black and leftist media.

Does the film get the story right?

Lee Stranahan explains the real background of the story and the myth that's built up around it; it's a potent reminder of the rift between black and white America and the dangers that it can cause.
