It subtly reinforces a system of white supremacy; by showing white characters as the only ones capable of changing Black lives, it promotes the removal of Black agency in the real world. This can lead to viewers being less likely to listen to Black leaders or Black-led organizations, like BLM.
Exactly. Like how black and minority film critic’s saying the exact same thing have been ignored and even silenced for decades — until a white writers flight flock to Medium to validate their perspectives.
Don’t get me wrong — I’m happy!
Whatever it takes!!
BLM needs everyone shouting with all their might for sake of our humanity — indeed, for sake of all himanity.
Just as in the movies, “White Savior” is is needed to validate black voices in real life.

It’s ironic, that’s all.
