The Slave Rebellion Genre

White Hollywood loves slave rebellion movies starring robots, but starring Black people, not so much.

White men have always been looking forward to the next slave rebellion, but only if it features robots. Why?Because robots, (or any beings classified as non-human constructs), are a lot easier to kill than people, and it’s easier for people to argue against their autonomy.
