When media starring POC are constantly under-valued and ignored, it’s business as usual.
But the mere thought of a film with an all-white cast losing to a moving staring black people means that it’s a sham?
If your first thought whenever POC are successful is about how undeserved that success or acclaim is - you’re racist and are working to defend and uphold system of racism.
Seriously though, look at how success for POC is automatically coded and interpreted as something being STOLEN from white people.
White entitlement is real, pervasive and covert.
La la land received 14 Academy Award nominations & broke records for the amount of Golden Globes received by one film. It has already received so much acclaim considering it is has an overwhelmingly white cast in a movie WITH JAZZ as the backdrop - yet that isn’t enough because whiteness cannot possibly allow it to be outshine by Moonlight.
