OK to watch and discuss with a teen

I watched this movie with my 14 year old son. I felt that it provided an opening to a conversation about racism and some background for current societal conversations that kids today can't understand because they've never seen real racism. I agree that the language is a little raw, but no worse than he hears on the school bus. The racial epithets became part of the conversation of how different groups have been treated. Besides, this is a good, entertaining movie and the first few minutes have some of the best boxing footage ever.
