Some white folks talk about how they can’t relate to a little black girl with this whole Annie remake. That’s racist. Why? Were you ever in a situation similar to the character Annie? Most likely no. Then why all of a sudden relatability an issue in this case?
And that’s the problem. Relatability in media is only brought up when the topic of race, and gender is involved and that’s racism and sexism in and of itself. It can be a movie about space aliens and the question of relatability is not brought up when it’s a movie or tv show that happens to be consisting of one or more actors that are a different color than you, or the main character is portrayed by a woman then relatabilty becomes an excuse to either not produce a movie or tv show, or not go and see it.
You’ve got plenty of movies and tv shows that will either take forever to get made or not made at all because of the whole “relatability” issue and it’s bullshit.
