    Exactly.

    And that's the problem with this particular discussion around political correctness, it's framed from the perspective of a non-minority. I think the people being depicted are in a better...

    Are all these characters based in Queens?

    Because the original point was the movies strive (and rightly so) to depict the neighborhood as close as possible to what it is today.

    Yes but it's still a far cry from what it was when Peter Parker was first introduced.

    I just checked the demographics, in 2010 it had a minority population of 42%. That's a huge minority population.

    Considering that was almost 10 years ago, i'm pretty sure that demographic would...

    I don't understand this. What does this have to do with my original point?



    Woah, that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about people who aren't minorities constantly complaining about...

    Fair enough.

    But from certain quarter, there would still be complaints about the film makers ignoring the white characters in favor of the minority ones.

    The thing is, that's almost never the case. Sure there are some works of art that are clumsy with their messaging but these are the exemption and not the rule.

    Agreed.

    If Luffy goes into Gear 4 Snake Man, the big G won't be able to respond. At all.

    But this isn't interesting. It's cringe inducing.

    I'm also not really familiar with him either but what he's doing now is just humiliating.

    I honestly don't hate Corbin at all. He's a competent big man and i genuinely liked his lone wolf gimmick.

    What did Mike Kanellis do deserve what he's getting. Dragging Ricochet into that horror...

    I honestly don't know how much involvement Chimamanda has in the production.

    That 50 shades thing was all sorts of messed up.

    Although, sometimes, the author's involvement is reasonable like...

    Exactly.

    And what kind of jet pack is it? Is it hand controlled, mind controlled, breath controlled e.t.c

    Whoa, you need to update your statistics. According to the last census, 17% of the population is African-American and 60% white.

    However, as at January this year, 50% of all children in the United...

    I hear you guys but i still fundamentally disagree. The whole idea that Africans are this nebulous mass of people that are indistinguishable rubs me the wrong way.

    But why Lupita?

    Nigeria has a massive film industry with dozens (if not hundreds of actresses) available worldwide.

    Being of Nigerian origin myself, it stuck out to me.

    The movie does sound like its carried by a "tour de force" performance from Phoenix but the rest sounds like what you'll expect.
