No.

Why?

“Sure, I’d prefer a Black creative to make ANY and all Black narratives, if I’m being honest.”

That’s why.

You are privileged (with victimhood) that you can say that.

It makes perfect sense for an artist to say “I won’t get this right if I try, so I’ll take it out.“ Whitewashing is the natural result of the structure of hyper sensitivity that white sociologists have developed for you over the last 4 decades. Sorry to see you hooked on it.

Film makers have to make films. If something makes a narrative too heavy they’ll cut it. Black history is sadly emotionally priced out of the market.
