Bizarre: Leftists Petition to Have Actor’s Statue Replace Confederate Memorial

A petition to erect a statue of Chadwick Boseman in the place of a confederate memorial in the late actor’s hometown has received thousands of signatures.

So far, nearly 13,000 people have supported the online campaign, which would see the monument in downtown Anderson, South Carolina, removed and replaced with a statue of the Black Panther star.

Addressing the Mayor of Anderson, Terence Roberts, the petition reads: “The Confederate Monument belongs in a museum but has no right to be displayed there.

“I believe the community should come together to honor someone from Anderson, South Carolina, that was able to change the movie industry. He opened many doors for many young Black people with his leading roles in movies such as Black Panther or Marshall. It is only natural that his hometown honors what he did. There is no need for political controversy in this decision.

Identity-Obsessed Media Praises Time Magazine For Putting Fictional Character on its Cover

Any publication capable of repeatedly enraging Donald Trump is one we should pay at least some attention to.

The latest cover of TIME magazine has struck a chord. It features Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman.

Accompanying the cover is a piece by journalist Jamil Smith.

Smith’s article highlights the cultural significance of the film. He traces the history of the Black Panther comics, which first appeared in the civil rights era (1966 specifically), all the way up to the character’s inclusion in the MCU, and what this means for black representation in media.

“This is not just a movie about a black superhero,” Smith writes, “it’s very much a black movie. It carries a weight that neither Thor nor Captain America could lift: serving a black audience that has long gone under­represented.”
