There is no lack of women who want to be directors. There is an industry that carries on an obsolete white hypermasculine mindset that discourages them from pursuing positions of power, erases the presence of the women who do, and diminishes their opportunities..And in the end, contributions by women will not be remembered..instead the white men who steal and popularize their innovations will be remembered and idolized by a new generation of film school fuckboys
So you understand that little white girls seeing only thin white girl’s being showcased, praised and adored, can fuck them up. But you don’t get why Black and Brown kids seeing white faces constantly is a problem. Okay.
This is what we mean when we talk about white supremacy. Cops are allowed to persecute and kill black people without any repercussions, mass white media is on their side who then influences the general public; “they were a thug, they had it coming, they had detention in the 6th grade, they had overdue library books”. Kill you, criminalize your corpse, erase your humanity. Another candle snuffed out because you happened to be born with the wrong skin
