In Jordan Peele’s horror film “Get Out” and in Harriet Jacob’s narrative “Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl”, our protagonists trust in the allyship of white women. However, Rose, who reflects the perceived innocence of women due to infantilization discussed in the Keywords essay Innocence, betrays Chris and reminds us of how white women continue to perpetuate their historical legacy of poor allyship. In her 1861 narrative, Harriet Jacobs called on white northern women to sympathize with her story and devote their efforts to ending the oppression of Black people in the United States. Jacobs likely called on white women in particular because they held the power to help due to their whiteness but also a perceived innocence and thus trustworthiness because of their gender. This characterization of women is discussed in the Keywords essay Innocence, which relates the conventional beauty standards of women to characteristics of infants and children. Because women are infantilized, they are also inextricably linked with innocence. This perceived innocence is enhanced when attributed to white women, whose race allows them further cultural dissociation from evil. Along with their perceived innocence, as a group still marginalized by the patriarchy, white women have historically been trusted as allies to other marginalizaed groups, namely Black Americans like Harriet Jacobs and Chris. However, “Get Out” shows us how this perceived innocence and trustworthiness can be, is, and historically was manipulated by white women to further their own interests, while also revealing how this manipulation still upholds white supremacy and the oppression of Black Americans today. The film “Get Out” thus casts a dark light over Harriet Jacob’s trust in white women, affirming that there is still much work to be done to end Black oppression, particularly on behalf of white women.
