4. The miraculous Whiteness of Being?

I agree with this:
There are white refugees. I know some Bosnians who are living in Roanoke, VA, under a decades-old resettlement agreement. That could be an awesome movie. Why tell this story?

I believe that most studios think that a white lead is mandatory for mass appeal... I mean. I guess that's what drives these decisions. But this is like "Blindside" writ large.

Take a black story and make it taste white?

Can't understand it
