NEWSFLASH: There were PLENTY of black superheroes before Black Panther, and honestly many of them were even cooler. See Spawn, Blade, Blankman …
Seriously, it’s like some of these people don’t realize there were movies before 2018, even former FLOTUS Michelle Obama.

And we get what she’s trying to say, young black people finally have superheroes who look like them to look up to … but it’s incredibly insulting to think this is the first movie to feature a black superhero or that young people can only look up to superheroes that who like them.
What happened to the content of character over color?
Yeah, we don’t miss Michelle.
Finally? Good lord

Her husband was president for eight years … remember when she was finally proud of her country?
Apparently all young people are black now.

We don’t know why so many people are refusing to acknowledge black superheroes who have been making movies and creating life-long fans for decades.
