:I don't think D. W. Griffith's Intolerance
counts. While he did write it to negate an interpretation of an earlier work, it wasn't an interpretation about an in-story status quo, but rather was the interpretation that he (and Birth of a Nation
) are racist.
(I think he completely missed the point
, anyway. Intolerance
says that intolerance based on religion, politics, and class is wrong—but it's silent about intolerance based on race.)
