    When Pat Robertson of all people says stuff like this, then you know that a lot more people are surely (but very slowly) coming to the realization that the police force should be reformed.
    I didn't even know he had post-Mesozoic opinions

    Right Wingers Cancel Marvel Cinematic Universe?
    A right-wing group is claiming that 83.49% of Disney+ viewers stopped watching "Falcon and The Winter Soldier" over a scene of "BLM propaganda." Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur discuss on The Young Turks.

    But the black experience isn't a monolith. Not every black person speaks the same way, acts the same way or has the same amount of black friends. This all depends on varying factors. That crack about Caribbean food is focused on because it honestly betrays a surprising amount of ignorance on her part. Luther is just one type of black person. It might be troubling if every black person on t.v. was like him but that isn't the case.

    Quoted for truth.

    That diversity chief made a very ridiculous point.

    Black people are absolutely NOT monolithic and have very diverse POVs and lifestyles.

    In summary, there's absolutely nothing like a "typical black man", black people are not all the same. And it's wrong for Miranda Wayland to somehow suggest that her personal experience as black woman represents what all black people should be. The Caribbean food is even totally ridiculous considering a very huge amount of black british people are of Nigerian descent and eat mostly Nigerian food.

    In addition to the obvious bigotry within right wing youtube circles, what gets me is just how much they tell lies.

    It's pretty staggering just how totally dishonest they are. But it's really not surprising considering just how far the right has fallen considering totally made up, 4chan fan-fiction that is "Qanon" has overtaken their psyche.

    Meanwhile, 13 year old Adam Toledo was gunned down by police officers.

    Granted he had a gun when the cop was pursuing him but it looked like he threw away the gun. Then he raised his hands and he still got shot.

    I don't really think police should even pursue suspects like EXCEPT a violent assault or something of the sort has happened already.

    Finally somebody else who called this shit what it is. If anybody choses to believe a weird conspiracy theory that's one thing but this is a nonsensical Trump centric fanfic.

    As for Adam Toledo whether he was violent or not the police would've concocted the flimsiest excuse to pursue and escalate. Despite everything that's happened over the last year a lot of these people still feel emboldened to live out out that action movie that plays in their heads.

    Unrelated I came across what I believe to be the worst article against recasting Chadwick Boseman.

    That and the fact that they think their own audience is full of rubes. They know they don't have to be accurate. They can simply make crap up and as long as it appears they're criticizing SJWs or "democrats", their crowd will eat it up. Unfortunately, this has proven to be successful.

    I give the show a lot of credit for addressing the elephant in the room and spoilers:
    and asking the question: given this country's history, why would any self respecting Black Man even WANT to be Captain America?

    spoilers:
    Yeah, I 100% thought they were going to turn it into Isiah giving his blessing to Sam.

    They went the complete opposite direction.
    end of spoilers

    Bold move for sure

    i think

    spoilers:
    the counter to Isiah's feelings was Sam's young kids feelings towards the shield

    Seems sam's gonna do it for da children lol
    end of spoilers

    what was underrated to me was

    spoilers:
    it doesn't matter was Steve thinks.

    finally... evolution from "I do what he does just slower." Hell, for both main characters, get out from under that shadow

    I can see spoilers:
    how that would be an inspiration to him, although those kids don't totally understand everything going on (and why would they, they're kids)
    end of spoilers

    It's odd to me though how despite the show spoilers:
    discussing the legacy of Captain America and the USA with regard to African-Americans, they never involved Battlestar in any of that. It might have been interesting to see his perspective on it before his demise
    end of spoilers
