For those of you who don't know who Luke Cage is, he's essentially a Marvel comic book character, who's also known as Power Man. He's a black superhero that lives in Harlem, and he possesses super human strength and impenetrable skin. Anyways, Marvel studios has recently launched a series of TV shows on Netflix starting with Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and now Luke Cage.
Considering the bulk of his stories take place in Harlem, a place that's predominantly inhabited by African Americans, naturally the majority of the cast in the show happens to be black. Yes, they do cast a few white people in the show, along with other people of various ethnicity. However, the majority of the cast is black because it takes place in Harlem.
However, the new netflix show is going through a lot of heat right now, as a lot of people are calling marvel a bunch of racists for not featuring more white people in it. What are your thoughts on this?
Lol. Why would they be racist? If that's the setting it would be racist to not cast predominantly black.
It's set in a predominantly black community, of course most characters are black.
I haven't seen the show but I remember Marvel's old "Luke Cage, Power Man" comic series. My comic-shop guy used to say that you could tell the book was written by a white guy, because Luke Cage always talked like a character from a blaxploitation movie, even well into the 1980s. He'd come crashing through walls saying unintentionally hilarious stuff Iike "Sweeeet Christmas! Step aside suckas, cause Luke Cage is comin' through!" Mr. T. sounded like a Rhodes scholar by comparison!

A black Baltimore man recently died while in police custody, and it is widely suspected that his death resulted from police misconduct and brutality. Well, I say, regardless of all that, thousands of blacks should NOT be out in the streets rioting. In my opinion, their rioting is nothing but a case...

Why on Earth is this kind of divisive hate speech allowed to be aired on national television? Do you think sponsors will cancel contracts with her show again after another one of her ugly racist rants or choose to hang on and perhaps suffer the detrimental consequences? Fox 'News' Channel, has...

In a conversation about racism in America today, a young relative, made this statement'"It is worse than it was six years ago!"It took me a moment to catch his drift. He is a young, (many times naive), anti-Obama conservative and I took his comment to mean it is worse since Pres....

The United States government, and the media, are filled with professional liars. This is not surprising, especially in government. Many elected officials, like Hillary Clinton, are former lawyers, and American lawyers are "the" best liars and con-artists in the world. Understanding...

While I am not a republic nor completly white, I am so tired of the constant assumption that Republicans are just white racist. Why do people assume this? It would be like saying Democrats are just poor black and hispanic people. See how ignorant that sounds! Why?

Why Do So Many Black People Say Whites are racist Without Questioning If They Really Are Racist?
