Should The Black Panther Movie Be Boycotted Because Of Jordan's Swirling?

Black Panther is one of Marvel Studio's most anticipated releases of the year, featuring a blockbuster cast of the hottest African-American talent in Hollywood. The star-studded cast includes some of the best actors working in Hollywood today including Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong'o, and Angela Bassett. For some, it represents a high-water mark for representation of black characters that have been significantly underrepresented in the previous movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, a new controversy is calling for black women to boycott the movie as a result of its decision to cast Michael B. Jordan as the movie's main villain Killmonger.

So, the article is openly entertaining the idea of a boycott because of miscegenation? Was this written in the 60's?

Ask the black females about that. Some of them hate black men for dating white women. In this case Michael B Jordan dating a white woman......

Stupidest question ever. I couldn't care less who an actor is dating. If an actor's love life has an effect on your decision in watching a movie I'm sorry but you're an idiot. If he really truly said he doesn't date black women then I really don't see anything wrong with it. Boycott away I'll be at the theater enjoying what looks to be an entertaining movie!

So lemme get this straight....if hollywood makes movies for white actors as leads and black actors as supporting actors, movies should be boycotted.
when african-american actors/actresses fight the good fight and eventually get an amazing "win" by making an epic big budget movie, black people want to boycott it because one actor isnt dating a black lady.

lol sometimes these petty race issues confuse me. can someone please explain it to me.

p.s just a side note....if a white man says hell never date a black chick, hes considered racist( dont believe me, go type that as your facebook status and give it 5 mins tops), but when a black man wants to date white women, its still wrong. wheres the win here? white man/black women. black man/black women?
