'White People Won't Save You' And Other Gems From The Mind Of Terence Nance


HBOThe mind of Terence Nance is like no other. It’s a show born of unapologetic free black expression. An example of that is a website exclusively dedicated to calling out the white savior trope in film, whitepeoplewontsaveyou.org. Nance described this as a piece of “counter-propaganda.” ″[There’s a] common lexicon for how to propagandize this idea that white people will save you and are inherently equipped, culturally and emotionally, to save black people, Asian, people of color generally,” Nance told HuffPost. He emphasized Hollywood’s influence, noting that the implication of these tropes “bears out in what type of decisions we make when we vote for people, when we watch certain shows, when we support certain types of white people or cave for certain types of white people.”
