* Dehumanization: borderline because of Abe Sharpe, described above. New York, the movie's setting, is a racist city. Blacks and Hispanics do get treated in a degrading way in a lot of cases. Mind you, it's better today than it was 50 years ago. We've made strides. But it still happens a lot in New York. he fact that Sharpe is the head of the NYPD preceint in Brooklyn, and he decides not to solve the cases shows the state lack of legal protection non-whites still get. Borderline segregation.
* EtTu,Brute?: A particularly sad version. [[spoiler: As the movie gets closer its climax, Fresh's plan costs him everything. His aunt can't afford to have a troublesome kid in her house. She calls the Bushwick Group Home. His friend, Nicholi blames him for Chuckie's death.]] Fresh feels like the world is turning their backs on him.

Fresh is a young black genius living with his saintly aunt and eleven other children in a poor UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity neighborhood. Fresh's life is disrupted by the drug trade in several ways: working for the kingpin Esteban (Creator/GiancarloEsposito) makes him chronically late for school, his beloved sister Nicole (N'Bushe Wright) is an addict, and gunfights break out where school kids play. Fresh's father Sam (Creator/SamuelLJackson) is a caustic chess champion whose way of relating with his son is to berate him for imperfect play. Eventually, Fresh loses too much and the time comes for him to play the dangerous adults he's working for against one another, with the goal of escaping that life at all costs.

* BadLiar: comical example - one of the associates of the white supremacist Hector, ironically this associate is black, even though white crime bosses uses blacks all the time, claims to be Hector, but Fresh quickly sees through it, saying, "You ain't Hector. Hector's in that office back there. I got an appointment with Hector, not your big gorilla monkey ass."

* JerkAss: A few. Fresh plays chess with a white man who berates the people he plays with. Herbie, who talks pervertedly about his sister and tries to provoke Fresh. Jake is like this too, even calling Fresh a "little motherfucker," and betraying his friendship.
