White Boy

Because You d White Boy
Crime Documentary 20171h 22mOn: Netflix 

“White Boy Rick”, as he was called, was a novelty: A white teenager seemingly running a major inner-city drug operation. In May of 1987, 17-year-old Richard Wershe Jr. was charged with a non-violent, juvenile drug offense. By the time of his arrest he was already a Detroit legend, frequently making front-page headlines and leading the local television news. In this film, gangsters, hit men, journalists and federal agents struggle to explain why he remains in prison at nearly 50 years old. The possible explanation is more stunning than the crimes Wershe was alleged to have committed.White Boy featuring Richard Wershe Jr. and Scott M. Burnstein is streaming with subscription on Netflix. It's a crime and documentary movie with a better than average IMDb audience rating of 7.2 (909 votes).
