this scene was so hard to colour it was basically white

Watching episode 5x14 of a different world and rolling my eyes so hard at the jail scene where the white police officer says to Wayne that Wayne should look at him as an individual instead of his colour (bc he’s not a racist cop since he marched with MLK) and i’m like DAFAQ. Basically they’re trying to create this false equivalency between systemic anti-blackness and black people “generalizing” white folks (as if the foundational, historical purpose of cops in the US is not to protect capital by punishing and killing black bodies; see: slave patrols). False equivalencies make me wanna projectile vomit.
