    i dont understand the whole black ames bond thing. or the black captain america or wonder woman… its not a step forward in a civil rights movement. does it really make a difference in the long run? especially since we’ve already elected a black president. all it really does is change a character whos popularity and charisma has largely been built on their “look”
