**SPOILERS**

During a scene in the film, there is an Asian gentlemen who is part of the white cabal, which sparked all manner of thoughts on the complicity of other non-Black people of color in white supremacy. Given that there are no Latinx characters in the film (which was intentional as it would have unnecessarily complicated the analysis of white supremacy–thanks for my friend Bijan for this point!) Still, it begs the question as to what would have been the role of a non-Black Latinx, hence the question to all of you.
