->''"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."''

->''"The Cotton Club was kind of a dividing point between white and black Harlem. The mobsters used it for their bootlegging, they hired black entertainers while only dealing with white clientèle. ''The Cotton Club'' was supposed to be a majority black starring cast and was going to be a gangland musical...The story focuses on a coronet player (RichardGere) who saves the life of a mobster and is hired to work for him as a reward. Gere has to escort the mobster’s girl (played by Diane Lane) whom he falls in love with. Oh and there is [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg something to do with Gregory Hines…somewhere]]."''

-> ''“There needs to be white people who do the right thing, there needs to be black people who do the right thing. And someone does the right thing. And so who cares who does the right thing, as long as the right thing is achieved?”''
-->-- '''[[https://news.vice.com/story/oscar-nominated-hidden-figures-was-whitewashed-but-it-didnt-have-to-be Theodore Melfi]]''', director of ''Film/HiddenFigures'', explaining why he includes [[VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory a fictional scene]] in which the white male director of NASA desegregates NASA’s bathrooms, when in reality Katherine Jackson, the black female protagonist, [[RefugeInAudacity simply used the white bathrooms without seeking anyone’s permission]].

-> ''“There’s no need for ''Film/HiddenFigures'' to [[VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory follow the true-to-life story to the letter—it’s not a documentary]]. But if the raw material is so powerful and interesting, why did the writers need to add a white guy who ‘does the right thing’? The answer to that question is pretty obvious. Black people wouldn’t be bothered by a movie that shows white characters who are oppressive at worst and [[BystanderSyndrome aloof and unhelpful at best]], anymore than women would be bothered by the male characters in ''Literature/TheStepfordWives''. So this kind of alteration only serves to soothe the conscience of white people. That’s the purpose of the White Savior trope—to provide a white character that allows white viewers to feel good about themselves. In this case, it means that white a person doesn’t have to think about the possibility that, were they around back in the 1960s South, they might have been one of the bad ones. Or the possibility that in 50 years, when someone makes a movie about 2017 America, that their own behavior will qualify '''them''' as one of the bad ones.”''
