I didn’t think that Joker was about white supremacy.
It seemed to me to be a character portrait of a mentally ill loner who is driven insane by the social and economic misery unleashed by neoliberalism.
“Still, what struck me most is that what the film wants to say — about mental illness or class divisions in American society — is not as interesting as what it accidentally says about whiteness. For it is essentially a depiction of what happens when white supremacy is left unchecked. It shows the delusions that many white men have about their place in society and the brutality that can result when that place is denied. …”
It was inevitable though that someone would write the Joker is about white privilege take. Pretty much everything is now “white supremacy” from the perspective of progressives.
