Atlanta Season 3 Episode 9: Will Aaron Receive the Scholarship?

Aaron intends to exact revenge on his school in the episode’s final act. He builds a flamethrower and arrives at his school to destroy it. However, while in school, Aaron encounters another student who was rejected a scholarship because he was not “black enough.” The second kid reveals that, while he was born in Nigeria, his parents migrated to the United States when he was a baby. As a result, he considers himself African-American and is deserving of the scholarship. Aaron, on the other hand, believes that he is “more” black than the other student because his father is black and his father’s family is from the United States.

Aaron only acknowledges his African-American ethnicity when he stands to benefit from it. The episode’s black and white aesthetic also reflects Aaron’s struggle with his racial origins. Aaron eventually embraces black culture and grows into a more confident version of himself.
