* BrokenAesop: Despite the film proudly bearing an obstinately anti-racist message, the only two Koreans of any real importance to the plot turn out to be slave traffickers.

* HopeSpot: Ryan gets one for a brief moment when he tells Shaniqua about how his father was kind to African Americans in an attempt to get him seen by a doctor sooner:
--> '''Ryan''': You don't like me, that's fine. I'm a prick. My father doesn't deserve to suffer like this. He was a janitor. He struggled his whole life. Saved enough to start his own company. Twenty-three employees, all of them black. Paid 'em equal wages when no one else was doing that. For thirty years, he worked side by side with those men, sweeping and carrying garbage. Then the city council decides to give minority-owned companies preference in city contracts. And overnight, my father loses everything. His business, his home, his wife. Everything! Not ''once'' does he blame your people. I'm not asking you to help me. I'm asking that you do this small thing for a man who lost everything so people like yourself could reap the benefits. And do you know what it's gonna cost you? Nothing. Just a flick of your pen.\\
'''Shaniqua''': Your father sounds like a good man. And if he'd come in here today, I probably would've approved this request. [[YankTheDogsChain But he didn't come in. You did. And for his sake, it's a real shame.]] ''(to guard)'' Get him the hell outta my office.

** The movie does imply that some of that animosity is a result of his experience as an LAPD cop.When he's having his final conversation with his former partner he tells him that he's still new on the force and doesn't yet know what to expect.

* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: {{Deconstructed}} rather brutally even though they didn't interact through the movie. [[spoiler:Waters is the detective who looks after his drug abusing mother, while Peter (younger brother) is out carjacking with a friend and is now dead. What makes this such a brutal deconstruction is the fact that while Waters looks after their mother, ''she'' is utterly convinced that it's ''Peter'' who is doing the caring.]]

* FairWeatherFriend: Employed in one of this film's subplots as part of the anti-racism [[AnAesop aesop]]. Sandra Bullock's character, a lonely woman married to a wealthy but frequently absent husband, has previously shown hostility to a Mexican repairman. Later on, she takes a fall in her home that leaves her unable to walk and she calls one of her white upper-class lady friends for help. Her "friend" ignores her plea, but her Mexican maid does come to her aid.
