White people have found another reason to be upset about black representation.
After the premiere of Marvel’s Luke Cage on Netflix, a lot of white fans of comic book series have complained about the show being “too black,” even calling it racist. Some fans (or non fans) took to social media to express their dismay about the super black, Marvel show which is set in Harlem, New York and has a cast full of African-Americans and Latinos.
Is it me or the new Netflix. Luke Cage a little racist. Notice it's mostly black where is the diversity. @LIVE_COVERAGE
Of course, black Twitter got involved and explained to the confused individuals why Luke Cage having a predominately black cast is so important, especially in today’s world where racial tensions are high and there’s still situations expressing a lack of diversity, including #OscarsSoWhite:
If Luke Cage is a 'racist' show because most of the cast is black, what does that make 90% of all the mostly white shows on TV? >headdesk<
