Totally agree. I also don’t understand why the author admitted that the older films had racist overtones, but said that Driving Miss Daisy’s racial politics were no longer relevant. I mean sure, racism might not pop up in the EXACT same ways that is used to (though I would argue it absolutely does in some parts of the country/world) but the situation is far from perfect and the same racist ideologies are in place. Besides, it was made in 1989 and set in the 50s, so it wasn’t supposed to mirror the present anyway. Sorry to stray from what you said, but I wanted to make sure I commented agreeing with your points, haha.
