There is a comment made by a character that mentions their life being a 'rope in a tree' referencing violence that happens towards Black people and people of color. It is just a comment and nothing is shown.

When the police crack Rennie’s head with a baton(?), he does have a stream of bloodied drool coming from his mouth. It’s semi-brief so it should be easily skippable

Perhaps not, but someone is hauled into another room rather brutally by several people, gets violently beaten up in there (still closely surrounded by them) and is taken back out cuffed and gagged - a state in which he stays for quite some time. Similarly, we see many people in a crowd being strong-armed and beaten by cops, unable to get away.

There is no suicide or self-harm in the film. The epilogue reveals the suicide of one of its protagonists many years after the events of the film have concluded. There are no details except to say that it happened.

Yes, but off-screen; we "only" see the bloodied bed where it happened. He's the only one who dies in the course of the movie. Another black man is singled out, mistreated by the authorities (in the form of a monster of a judge) and beaten up. Obvious racism.

Someone makes a comment using the F** slur. It is not used violently towards someone, but it is said.

No. A black man says "negro" about himself (on behalf of the authorities, so to speak). (The movie takes place when that word was still commonly used about black people.)

I don't know exactly what counts as sexual content... We see the beginning of a sexual assault (group rape about to happen, nipped in the bud by intervention), but nothing sexual happens.

In the ending scene, it explains what happens to the protagonists after the events, it says that one protagonist died from getting hit by a car, but it does not show it nor does it go into detail.

TW// Riots, gore, police brutality
.........................................................................

There are scenes of the police beating protesters during riots, and it shows blood and wounds (especially head wounds) many times.

There is also a close up/slo-mo of someone being hit in the head and blood flying out.
