Why ‘The Legend of Tarzan’ is a Shitty Racist Movie

……comic books. This just is another in a long list of comic book movies.

In general, the original artist’s message gets lost in translation (and sometimes by remakes) and we, as the audience, project our own thoughts, feelings and experiences and often take from a piece what was not intended.

Now, I have not seen Legend of Tarzan and therefore cannot sensibly make a judgement about this one, but I do remember the comic books and remember anything inherently racist….

I don’t really understand why people hate so much.

Racism is such an alien concept to me. I don’t see anything wrong with superheroes, there are all races and sexes of superheroes and supervillains… and honestly, most of the supervillains I remember were white.

I think the part that confuses me most is it’s just fiction. It’s just pretend.

If everyone is going to get all worked up why waste time on a piece of art that will likely be forgotten soon instead of real people and their lives?
