    Yeah well it’s nice to see….8ahem*…that the sotry of colonized love is the same everywhere. This story, as told by countless of White people, particularly men, is the martyred, romantic ideal that does not take into account that in each culture, there is a group of people that come to colonize, disrespect and change the culture. Just because John Smith or Jake sully are painted to be “one of the good ones” doesn’t mean that it isn’t the authors ideals that shine through to let the reader know that these people can so easily be colonized and lured into romance with them. This is the same sicknening theme that White guilt produces over and over again. Some how there is guilt at what has been done, but the author chooses to pain it in a way that makes it seem that having a member of the colonized group fall in love with a member of the dominant group int he end makes things alright. It NEVER makes things alright. The native peoples of this country HATE Pocohontas once they realize what it stands for. Sure you may have some indian friends who love it, but it’s because they might not yet understand that this too is a form of colonization. This romanticized romance that is a theme over and over is not real or authentic and it does much harm to all who buy into it. White Guilt is a lethal effect on non-dominant and colonized populations.
