YMMV: White Man's Burden
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: The entire society has been Race Flipped, with blacks really in charge of government, business, and above all, the media. Just the sheer implications of this are staggering, (check out CSA: The Confederate States of America for an ironic inversion of the idea). Instead the story focuses on a stock murder plot.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Apply the movie's own Aesop to itself. Thaddeus played by a white guy would have been a more educated, wealthier, less likeable version of Archie Bunker, while Louis and his family as black would have played into the "blacks are an ignorant, stupid, foolish race that needs to be protected from themselves for their own good" stereotype.
