Furthermore, mainstream media gives Asian males few role models to emulate in social and romantic situations. This is a breakthrough role for an Asian male, and I believe indicative of a shift in societal perceptions, even if the ratings for the show are challenged.

She smiled, and feeling flattered responded whether I start a conversation with every woman like that.This swell of excitement and sensation of feeling seen is quite literally how white people feel “all the time since the beginning of cinema,” and we deserve our moment to shine regardless of the petty dating news of one cast member.Plus, if Black women began boycotting every piece of art by a Black man who chose to rock a non-Black woman on his arm, we’d be giving up a lot more than just movie tickets.Not only is this silver screen masterpiece the first Marvel franchise to have a Black superhero lead and feature a primarily all-Black cast, it is also the first time our community has seen representation at this magnitude.Seeing the majestic images plastered across the internet gives an unimaginable sense of pride and empowerment that’s not easily forgotten because of Jordan’s rumored relationship.
