no one talked about how the blade franchise became catered to a white audience in the sequels. i really enjoyed the first one and looked forward to the second one (i visited the franchise on hbo max recently) and immediately took notice of the massive white cast and even the removal of karen. giving blade a white love interest, the club scene in the sequel depicting white women in a sexualised manner even some culturally appropriating braids. not only did the franchise cater to white people that fetishised “strong black men” with a white love interest and strong white cast but also favoured black males that are colourist and prefer white women altogether. yes the first movie had a sort of fetishism of black women with the antagonist saying weird shit about the women’s skin and even being romantically involved with blade’s also black mother but it’s clear they completely removed that element and replaced it in favor of a white demographic. they wanted the coolness of a black hero but no supplement of his black culture and other black folk like him. basically became a franchise for white people that think they’re not racist because they stereotype that black men are very strong and are okay with interracial relationships that only involve black men with white women. a franchise colonised and ruined yet again
i was too impatient to finish this nicely but here is @relaxxattack's dtiys :]
