I know! People are like: "Oh, it's just a movie/book/tv show/blah" and what? Somehow global racism against black people springs out there from the ether?! Because I'm betting all the people I met saying those things have probably never talking to an Actual Black Person (tm) in their lives and everything they think they know about black people comes from... dun dun dun, stupid media stereotypes.
Doh. I also forgot the part in which I wanted to say that acknowledging the role US-centrism plays in the global sphere in terms of racism and stereotypes and prejudices is not the same thing as approving and/or perpetuating US-centrism.
