If it were a white artist with a culturally uncouth black driver?


And the white man teaches him how to eat, not throw trash from the car, not steal, not swear, then how to talk, how to write letters and how to be a “gentleman”, would it be the most racist and culturally insensitive movie of the year or nominated for best picture?

There are already plenty of "white savior" movies.

I think people are a little over it.

Wikipedia is too difficult for this guy.

No, of course not. Oscars have a political agenda and everybody knows that. Anything else is bothering you?

Exactly!!!!! You nailed it. Even though it's a true story it just shows the paradox of reverse racism. The fact that such a film surely couldn't happen just shows how deeply and profoundly racist this "left" way of thinking really is.

I wonder if Italians were offended?
