Right, the story we are in assumes the best intentions from the white people, and the worst intentions from the dark people.Thats not the story we are in....we (as the people on the boat) are not colonizing (in that context) we are venturing into the jungle like many famous explorers did. (The explorers themselves did not often colonize) what there goverments did after is another matter. Depicting a tribe that may have never seen any other humans ever as hostile is not a stretch....our boat loaded up with commisions and a charter from the East india trading company however is.
The white people wrote the story of the ride. Do you understand yet?
