After the premiere of Marvel’s Luke Cage on Netflix, a lot of 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.
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 pop culture still sees a lack of diversity (see: #OscarsSoWhite).
If you haven’t seen Luke Cage, catch it now on Netflix.
