This post is a good post...

How the outsider hero marginalizes outsider groups even more. Another problem is that it makes the cultures and peoples around the hero into just background music for the outsider hero star. The oppressed folk had lives and histories and stories to tell way before this guy came here with his inspiring speeches. He is in the spotlight, and they are in the shadow. Boooring! I don't want to hear about some white guy who saves the savages. It's a dead horse trope. Give me something new.
