  • It's almost like a disease. Racial inequality in this country has gotten so bad that it seems like sometimes there is no hope to fixing it.

    It's almost like a disease. Racial inequality in this country has gotten so bad that it seems like sometimes there is no hope to fixing it. The dynamic would be interesting, if it wasn't an unfortunate reality for so many: you create capitalism based on the fact that you have a non-existent working class (slavery); you free that working class but impede on their ability to benefit from the overall economic growth of the country (Jim Crow); then, last but not least, you won't allow them to benefit from specific programs meant to propel them forward in a system where they've purposely been left behind because "constitutionally, it isn't fair to discriminate against others". No doubt this is why fictional places like Wakanda become such a preferred alternate to reality.
