White folks are clueless about the burden of oppression as it has been imposed on African-Americans throughout our history. (Reading W.E.B. DuBois and Zora Neale Hurston can help, but it's not the same thing as living it.) They only suffer from class prejudice, which is certainly bad enough but as it has played out here over time, it simply exacerbates and convolutes the racism. If you are being truthful about having never met an alienated person in your entire life (as you claimed elsewhere) then this could only be due to the fact that you've had a great deal of good fortune in terms of how (and where) you've lived.
And, yes, I felt terribly chagrined for my lapse of memory WRT to George Floyd's first name given the horrific nature of the crime (even by American standards) and the epic volume of references to it since its occurrence. I also felt that having that discussion reduced to nothing but that mistake was passive-aggressive (at best) on your part. But that had nothing to do with my response here, and I certainly hope that after all this time here you will take that at face value.
Oddly enough, VAST OF NIGHT does come around to being obliquely related to that other discussion...at some point, if/when you go past the 27-minute mark, you may discover that for yourself. But given our differences in experience and orientation, that may simply not mean the same thing to you as it does to me. But I assure you that it (whatever "it" may be) is not the only reason I enjoyed the film. (But it helped!)
