Like, in movies, TV shows and the news. In most cases for movies, non-white protagonist (s) are played by white characters for the sake of keeping the protagonist (s) white (Avatar: The Last Airbender, for example). However, when a white protagonist is played by a non-white character, people lose their shit (Annie- 2015, for example). More often than not in older movies (Less often now, I think), you'll find that it's blonde-haired, blue-eyed white women as the "damsel in distress".. Weren't the Nazis pretty crazy about blonde haired, blue-eyed white people? Something about Aryans? Hmmm..

lol Some people don't like to be told about white privilege. They get their panties in a bunch, as proven even on these comments and others all over the internet. You present them tangible evidence, and they just scoff and dismiss it. You go to a country like South Africa, where whites are significant but a minority, and compared to the population whites are over-represented in the media. You even go to Mexico and other Latin American countries and you see more white-ish people dominating the media, despite being a minority. There was some data released about ebay sales, and how the color of the hand in the product images affected the sale price. There was an experiment that showed black sounding names on resumes got less callbacks than white sounding names. The list goes on and on, but it makes no difference to the people hellbent on believing race isn't a factor for anything.4
