    If you honestly believe people are being triggered by the movie, then you don't get the point. Of course, you're being told that white comic book readers are racists and wouldn't go see a black superhero unless they were forced to do it anyway, so it's understandable that you'd believe that the ethnicity of the lead character would cause them to be furious and indignant.

    He just wants to practice using the word "triggered".

    Obama portrait artist likes to paint black people beheading white people. But don't worry. It's not racist.

    I cannot get my link to post, but google jeff sessions and anglo.

    A poster already posted this above, but the stupidy shown by the people claiming this is racist leads me to believe America is screwed. There are so many comments of people saying “he should have realized how the ignorant masses would interpret it and not use the phrase.”

    Political Correctness: Being against the truth or accurate language in favor of not upsetting the misguided, ignorant masses.

    Democracy only works with an educated population. Otherwise, it is doomed to fail.

    Anglo means English. We have an English legal system. My God people.

    “The sheriff is a critical part of the Anglo-American heritage of law enforcement." - Jeff Sessions

    “A married couple possessing ‘community property’ is a critical part of the Spanish-American heritage of Texas property and family law” - Htown77

    These historically accurate statements are now no bueno apparently.

    It's a bit funny if you verbalize "#MeToo" using the original meaning of # instead of 'hashtag'
    I wonder if whoever came up with was really just trolling?

    Yeah, the stupidity of the people who crapped their pants over this is pretty astounding. I've read that he was referring to extrajudicial lynchings, Bull Connor, and all kinds of stupid ****. However, anytime the media and Democrats freak out over something patently stupid like this, it helps Trump.

    I guess that's what happens when you purge the entire educational system of any hints of Anglo influence in our society - apparently the fact that we were a British colony under British rule, let in many cases by people who were British with ties to British government left absolutely no recognizable mark on this country.

    I remember a Dallas Public Housing officially using the non-racist but racist sounding term niggardly. He was very gracious and said he deserved the subsequent firing. I love the language and couldn't buy in.

    I had forgotten about this. It is like newspeak in 1984 except it is being driven by ignorance rather than Big Brother. Of course, I guess Big Brother represents willful ignorance to some extent.

    "Ignorance" is too kind of a word. Being ignorant suggests a lack of knowledge, but with the availability of information at our fingertips, there's no reason for anybody to be that ignorant. This is blatant stupidity that certain people intentionally don't correct, because it would undermine their political agenda.

    I must not be a racist because I've not gone to see any of the super hero movies at the theater. Not Superman (though I did enjoy Christopher Reeves first Superman movie when it came out on TV but I think that's because I love Gene Hackman), not Batman (no matter the actor), not Wonder Woman, not Captain America... none of them. And I won't be seeing Black Panther. It's all fantasy. If someone has super powers then it doesn't matter what they are. It doesn't make me think any more or less of whites, blacks or women.

    I think the "niggardly" incident you are referring to actually happened in DC. There are number of such incidents on Wikipedia, but this is the closest to your description:

    Perhaps her name is Lola. Lola the dominatrix.

    True story. I stopped at Luby's for a bite a while back. There was a "server" who was obviously in the very early stages of transitioning to a woman. She had on makeup and was growing her thinning hair out and that was about it. She says to me "Hi, I'll be your server. I'm Lola". All all could think think of was those lyrics by the Kinks:

    Well i'm not the world's most masculine man
    But i know what i am and i'm glad i'm a man
    And so is lola
    Lo-lo-lo-lo lola lo-lo-lo-lo lola

    I just thought, Lola, really? You couldn't be a Sherry or a Courtney or something. You had to pick Lola?

    I always thought it was "But I know what I am and what I am is a man".

    This makes pretty good sense. If you're one of these nuts who gets sexual pleasure from being forced to endure pain and torture, having to read black feminist theory would probably be pretty arousing.

    That audio sounds like they recorded it in their Mom's garage. It hard to tell what they're saying.

    My hair is still dark and my beard grows in white, so I stay clean shaven... but I'll keep my wavy hair until God comes to get it.

    This type of priggishness is the problem. To be so ashamed of yourself that you would become an oppressive fool is a sign of someone in need of serious counseling. I will never believe this sort of thing is a rational response to life.

    To be fair, he did have a pretty bad looking beard. The neo-lumberjack look should be millennials' great shame with respect to appearance. It's really stupid looking.
