Show... same thing...

There was a big discussion on his race a few weeks back, was there not? You must have missed that.

The inherent irony of a character that is black, male, and nearly indestructible in an age punctuated by gun violence and black death is not lost on the show’s creator, Cheo Hodari Coker.

I've never been one into super heroes or anything like that, so I don't know anything about it. Other than that the show was to be a monumental event because of the race of the hero.

I didn't write the barrage of articles on the topic. Don't shoot the messenger.

Luke Cage has been black for the past 40 years, what talk about his race are you even speaking of?

And I don't even remember much of the hype being about his race. I do remember Black Panther being tho, his movie being an all black cast and what not.

I watched half of the episode following Cottonmouth and lost interest. Haven't watched it since.

Wasn't there a post on it on this board?

Although the show has received mostly positive reviews from critics, there’s one demographic that’s less jazzed about Marvel’s ode to black strength and resilience: white people. On Twitter, some viewers of the Caucasian persuasion took “Luke Cage” to task for its portrayal of white people — namely because the show doesn’t portray them at all.

I don't get the big deal... but again, I don't follow comics all that much. Part of me is surprised that there's never been a black hero; I thought there would have been one before this.

There's been black 'heroes' in movies before (Denzel is a hero to me in every movie), but never a 'superhero'.

Dang. I just saw the episode where he died. I had high hopes. Hopefully you are wrong.

Amazing how some of you are so dependent on the attention you get from screaming liberal/conservative diarrhea at each other on an internet basketball message board that you politicize a f*cking TV show about comic books.
