“Virgin / White / Female Survivor”

BJ Colangelo writes about race and the final girl for Graveyard Shift Sisters:

“When we think of the final girl in a horror film, we all know the rules.  We’ve got ourselves the virgin girl out of her group of friends, a majority of the time she’s brunette in comparison to the “dumb slutty blonde” friend, and she’s usually more interested in being the smart-girl over being the pretty girl.  However, when we think of the final girl, do we ever once question the color of her skin? No.

That, my friends, is white privilege.”
