From The Handmaid’s Tale to The Hunger Games, the imagined dystopian futures mine the past and present realities of mostly Black and Indigenous people, dramatizing them and attributing the stories to white characters instead because the average white consumer can only identify with white victimhood.

This doesn't seem like the most major line, but its really got me thinking about the dynamics like that in fiction. Its such a common occurrence, permeating almost every film that takes even a moment to give society a negative light or push for a revolution in any context.

I suppose the best answer would be to have more PoC directing films, evidenced by multiple releases in past years, but I wonder if anything can be done to try to get white directors or writers or whatever get that in their head too.
