'White Savior' in media by Dogman15
'White Savior' in media
In fiction, the idea of the "White Savior" is "a white character rescues people of color from their plight" (quoting Wikipedia). All of the films (and one book) pictured here share one thing in common. In them, an individual from a more advanced race or species visits the land or planet of a race or species less advanced, and shows them new things they haven't seen before. In most of the stories here, if not all, the two wildly different individuals fall in love with each other. Another common thread is an individual on the visiting side who has no care or regard for the population they are coming to.

Animorphs: Aldrea-Iskillion-Falan (an Andalite) goes to the Hork-Bajir planet and sees the Hork-Bajir seer Dak Hamee. Alloran-Semitur-Corrass serves as the Andalite who wants to wipe out the Hork-Bajir so the Yeerks can't use them.
Avatar: Jake Sully goes to Pandora and sees the Na'vi Neytiri. Colonel Miles Quaritch wants to tear down the forest to find unobtanium.
The Last Samurai: Captain Nathan Algren is taken captive in a samurai's village in the mountains of Japan. While there, he comes to sympathize with the Japanese in 1876. He comes into a light romance with Taka, the widow of the samurai he killed earlier. I'm not sure who the "bad guy" is, since I haven't seen this film. Read TV Tropes and Wikipedia
FernGully: The Last Rainforest: Zak Young goes to the FernGully rainforest with Crysta and falls in love with her. Hexxus is the manifestation/personification of pollution that is harming the rainforest.
Pocahontas: John Smith visits North America (Virginia or Maryland) and sees Pocahontas and the Powhatan people. He eventually develops romantic feelings for her. Governor John Ratcliffe serves as the "bad guy" who wants to "kill all the savages" and take the new land.
Dances With Wolves: In 1863 (13 years before The Last Samurai), Lieutenant John J. Dunbar goes to Fort Sedgwick after winning a Civil War battle for the Union. He sees Stands With A Fist (a white woman captured years ago) of the Sioux, and I think that's the romantic interest. The "bad guy" appears to be the U.S. Army.

This is MIDIjam running on a 1080p monitor, even though the window itself is limited to being 4:3 only.
Since my last journal, and I don't have much to show for it. My foot healed months ago, I just got a new laptop (though the old one still works when you plug it into an external monitor), and I'm going to BABScon in April. Ask me anything.
  • Playing: Left 4 Dead 2

Favourite photographer: Anyone who goes the extra mile to get a great shot.
Favourite style of art: Simple: Pencil and Paper (when I draw); Digital (for others' art)
Operating System: Windows XP or 7
MP3 player of choice: Nintendo 3DS Sound
Shell of choice: Koopa (red)

To clarify what I tweeted you a minute ago, didn't have much room for clarity: Maybe our questioning of people can be a bit more systematic. Say we create a video that compiles all the unknown voices in a single episode (or find someone who can do that, if making videos isn't within our means), spread it around along with our inquiries. And we do that for one episode at a time... probably in order, but we don't necessarily have to be that efficient. In the meantime, I'll do some asking around myself. I start on a road trip tomorrow, but once I'm at my destination, you'll find that the completion of your mission will become excellently streamlined.

As I said earlier, you probably have better tools and resources to make videos like that than me. But I like the idea.

Are you there?
Dogman15 Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2014
I'm not on DeviantArt 24/7, nor am I on it throughout most of the day like I am on Steam and e-mail/Twitter. I check this site about once a day.
HelloKittysPal1993 Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2014
I understand. Anyway, I have something for you.

Are you there? :iconhellokittyspal1993: wants to speak to you.

Yes, he wrote a message on my wall only 28 minutes before you wrote this. You didn't need to tell me this. I'm not on DeviantArt a lot, maybe only a few times a week. If my computer is on, I'm always available instantly on Steam.

Hi. I'm thinking about having lunch with you next month.
