    lmao no one is dismissing your thread or the need to talk about oppression, it’s just that no one is surprised that the man who financially backed Trump is a racist, homophobic a$$h0\_€. People have called it out but cancel culture isn’t real and we can’t cancel a billionaire.

    Who said anything about cancelling but i do find the dismissive ness of what is a real issue that has potentially cancelled a whole culture of people from making a potential living interesting. Ignore the thread, fine, but to make light of the situation, for me, i'm actually surprised. Like i'm really surprised.

    It just doesn't feel like a new conversation. We've known and talked about this for so long that, at least in my case, there's nothing serious that needs to be said that hasn't already been said before.

    He has a job because he has a large financial stake in the company. It's not as easy to fire somebody like that as it is a normal employee.

    MCU fans dont care as long as they can have their entertaining feel good funny meme movies. Disney business practices are much worse and more destructive then this one individual.

    And Bob Iger was in Trump’s business council or whatever it was called.

    Hm but when it comes to making a movie about a character kinda too late

    Whatever you can say about the quality of the movies, it's objective that MCU fans hated Ike and wanted him anywhere else. He was the one behind the Inhumans push.

    Well keep on being surprised because I’m black so you can imagine how I felt when he said “all black people look the same.” I honestly don’t know what you want us to do. Yeah he’s racist and needs to get fired and honestly blackballed from Hollywood but they’ve never considered black and brown ppl to be profitable so we’ve just ended up in expendable and fairly disgusting roles.

    This thread isn't about Disney, it's about one individual.

    Just to be clear, maybe i'm just naive. With all the post after post about how mutants are oppressed it genuinely shocked me to see the responses. I don't post here all the time, i disappear for long periods of time so seeing it after going round and round and round in circles with the whole mutant vs. human thing like oh it don't matter because we knew it. It shocked me. I can't act like it didn't. That's just my initial reaction maybe it's unfair i don't know i can't say but it's just how it made me feel seeing it. I can 100% agree maybe i'm being sensitive but it really shocked me given the discussions we have been having around here going round and round over the same stuff.
