Well, honestly, there's a way to do subtle without being SyFy about it. They don't need a random black character go, "YOU DID THIS TO US AND NOW YOU'RE DOING IT TO THEM", but all they needed to do was just have a black character identify with the aliens.
No, I'm tired of movies being that on-the-nose.

I agree 100% with Kajima.
The problem is that it becomes erasure. Although, I do accept the premise that being a part of government documentary, it would make sense to erase the problematic parts of history.

Sort of like WW2 propaganda videos not mentioning Japanese internment or segregated armies, I suppose.
I think you need to just go see the movie.
