Because the overwhelming amount of people who feel the need to ignore racism, deny racism, trivialize racism, and even appropriate and support racism is just disgusting. It’s becoming so repetitious I could honestly say outloud everything that is about to be said before I even read any new comments in regards to this movie.
Part of me wonders if this is strictly a Johnny-Depp-is-hot-and-can-do-no-wrong thing, but then the other part of me wonders if these people just straight up hate Native Americans. Because that’s honestly what it has always felt like and what it feels like now: they just hate us. It’s so internalized in their whole being to view Native Americans as lesser beings, if not human at all, and speaking up against racism towards them is just ridiculous to them.
It honestly just makes me want to throw up.
