In my movie the black man isn't the first to die: nor is he the villain, or token. He's not there to satisfy your stats, or play to your stereotypes.
He's no victim, and he has no price.

He's the protagonist, he stands proud and owns his blackness.
He gets the girl, he gets the guy.
He's outstanding, he's ordinary.
Triumphant and resourceful; influential and trustworthy.

He bleeds the same as you,
hurts the same as you,
breathes the same as you,
he breathes.
