'Let's split up and look for clues!'

A word from Sherronda J Brown on Twitter about white people and their decision-making skills, particularly in horror:

white people generally make bad decisions in dangerous situations, especially ones that require the work/support of community to get through, because they have grown up on the lessons of white supremacy and individualism. it’s true in horror narratives and it’s true in real life.

it’s always, “let’s split up.” it’s always, “let’s explore/dig up this thing the Indigenous people left buried for a reason.” it’s always, “that man who is native to this area and told us to turn back is crazy.” it’s always undue confidence that they can survive anything.
