Is all this anger about the actress, Zendaya portraying Mary Jane in ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’…
Thaddeus Howze

I think if we frame this discussion in terms of culture instead of race, then I think changing characters would make much more sense to more people (except full-on racists, but who cares about them).

  • A teenage boy or girl from Queens? Any race.
  • The political, spiritual, and cultural leader of an African nation? Black.
  • The living embodiment of the perfect soldier according to 1940's America? White.
One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
