It occurred to me, after reading this excellent post on women in fiction and the Bechdel Test, that perhaps you could construct one to address issues of POC and race. The analog seemed obvious, so I just wrote it out.
1. It has to have two POC in it.
2. Who talk to each other.
3. About something other than a white person.
Now, you see the obvious issue there, right? Yeah, it has to do with number one. Even in stories that feature prominent POC characters, it is so rare to find more than one present, let alone who know each other well enough to talk to each other…
We can think of so many different versions of the Bechdel test; for QUILTBAG+ people, disabled people, there’s so much representation that we need.

I didn’t mean to write an essay, yet still I would’ve gone more in detail. To make my point clear how the film is not a failure but had high expectations, think of the film like a gator, you can’t expect a gator to climb a tree but the gator is still worth something in itself.
I DONT THINK PEOPLE UNDERSTAND HOW HARD ANIMATORS WORK
WHAT BUGS ME MOST IS WHEN ANY ANIMATED MOVIE BECOMES FAMOUS (DISNEY, PIXAR, ANIME’S, AND TV SHOWS) THE WRITER GETS 99.9999% OF THE CREDIT.
DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS TO DRAW THE SAME CHARACTER SLOWLY MOVING 24 TIMES- ONLY TO MAKE ONE SECOND OF ANIMATION?
HOW MANY SKETCHES THEY MADE?
PEOPLE NEED TO APPRECIATE ANIMATORS MORE.
