YMMV / White Man's Burden

  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: The film takes place in a Persecution Flip world and set in an America with blacks as the privileged racial majority occupying most positions of power and whites as the unprivileged minority. Just the sheer cultural implications of this are staggering (see Noughts & Crosses for another story based on this premise). Instead, the story focuses on a stock kidnapping plot with the racial themes as a side show.
