When discussing Simba, Dryer says that "the colonial landscape provides the occasion for the realization of white male virtues, which are not qualities of being but of doing-acting, discovering, taming, conquering" (150).
Perhaps the 2006 film Blood Diamond is an accurate, modern example of this same idea. Although the film probably doesn't use as much obvious, racist techniques, it still portrays the white man coming in to save the day. Even though one of the leads is played by a black, African man (Djimon Hounsou), the characters played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Connolly are still needed in order to facilitate some kind of investigation and eventual change in the forced enslavement of children in the diamond fields in civil war-torn Sierre Leone. Throughout the film, DiCaprio's character embodies "moral superiority of white values of reason, order, and boundedness" unlike those living in Sierre Leone (151).
