->''"Science fiction comes into visibility first in those countries most heavily involved in imperialist projects -- France and England -- and then gains popularity in the United States, Germany, and Russia as those countries also enter into more and more serious imperial competition. Most important, no informed reader can doubt that allusions to colonial history and situations are ubiquitous features of early science fiction motifs and plots. It is not a matter of asking whether but of determining precisely how and to what extent the stories engage colonialism."''

->''These are movies about white guilt. Our main white characters realize that they are complicit in a system which is destroying aliens, AKA people of color - their cultures, their habitats, and their populations. The whites realize this when they begin to assimilate into the "alien" cultures and see things from a new perspective. To purge their overwhelming sense of guilt, they switch sides, become "race traitors," and fight against their old comrades. But then they go beyond assimilation and become leaders of the people they once oppressed. This is the essence of the white guilt fantasy, laid bare. It's not just a wish to be absolved of the crimes whites have committed against people of color; it's not just a wish to join the side of moral justice in battle. It's a wish to lead people of color from the inside rather than from the (oppressive, white) outside.''

clientèle. ''The Cotton Club'' was supposed to be absolved of a majority black starring cast and was going to be a gangland musical...The story focuses on a coronet player (RichardGere) who saves the crimes whites have committed against people life of color; it's not just a wish mobster and is hired to join work for him as a reward. Gere has to escort the side of moral justice mobster’s girl (played by Diane Lane) whom he falls in battle. It's a wish love with.
