And neither is the idea that he is interested in keeping his group safe because of altruism. Neither sides are in the narrative, to continue repeating myself.
And Michonne can't simultaneously "seek no group dynamic" and "spend most of her screen time helping white characters." Those are contradictory arguments.
Actually no, they're not. She is not seeking a group to align with, she is merely helping them. Those are two different things. If I'm driving past a school bus that has broken down on the side of the road, helping them is not me wanting to join that group.
Finding the prison people gives her a chance to get back into the little town and kill the Governor. That's her strategy. She's not helping them. She's helping herself.
Actually Michonne needed no help getting back into the town. Once they arrived, she snuck off and found her own way in with no help from the others. She did it alone. This means that she led them there so they could get their people back...more helping the white characters. Since she needed no help getting into the town, why help them? Especially since Rick was so hostile to her? Because that's what the stereotype usually calls for.
Once again, I am not cramming Michonne into this stereotype...it exists in the show with no help from myself. She fits every single requirement. I have already explained why the other white characters do not...completely forgetting the fact that this stereotype does not exist for white characters...it is traditionally reserved for blacks. Meaning that even if a white character on this show fits the stereotype...it is not a stereotype for them. It has no shameful history regarding that ethnicity. Honestly I wish it wasn't going on, because it's a good show.
