This isn't complicated. People believe in role models. Since white men have been overrepresented in our stories for so long, my point obviously was that it's good to have some other role models as well, that reflect the audience. Can you actually imagine what it would be like to look around you at all the heroes of your culture and see NO ONE admirable who you can personally identify with, to feel inspired by? I'm guessing not.
I have no problem with media reflecting society. My point was that wakanda is an ethno-nationalist country that doesn't want any diversity and yet it seems to be cheered in a time when we are supposed to be cheering diversity
I didnt think Captain Marvel was in the top tier of MCU films, but I did think it was great to see all the girls and young women there with their families to see a woman who might inspire them.... just like Wonder Woman a year or two again. It's not a bad thing, and there is no rule of who a superhero is supposed to be either.
Ok but why does an inspirational woman have to be a violent one?
You've lost me. Our entertainment has been inundated by male violence since its inception, so... what's your point? (I'm kinda hoping it's not that "women aren't allowed to use force because they have to be loving and kind and stabilize the culture while men pursue violence.")
No my point is that we shouldn't be celebrating violence as it is so why would we then cheer on MORE violence but this time being perpetrated by women?
Wakanda has really only been in one movie extensively (and part of a second). They're an African country. Let's see what their direction is, now that they decided to open their land to others. It's called a "story arc," not the static state of white male domination for the first 50+ years of comics history in the USA, at least, where there was no arc... just inundation. I'm interested in seeing how Wakanda continues to evolve.
i think most 'white males' have themselves been dominated by the system and the ruling class that runs it
I think you are drawing the line in the sand in the wrong place and that you have been tricked into doing this by the elites who want you blaming the men around you instead of the elites who have been screwing everyone for centuries
