yeah. There are no black people in Britain.

In JWB's defense, a lot of Americans don't know that there are.

This movie looks good. I should go see it.

Around 1.8 million people in Britain are black (African or Afro-Caribbean origin). Around 3 million are south Asian in origin.

This is out of a population of around 60 million.

By proportion, black people are less well represented here than in the US, but Asians much more so.

No attempts at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my hear a deep and burning hatred for the Tory Party … So far as I am concerned, they are lower than vermin.

I'm not looking forward to the internet drama though.
The internet always politicizes movies like this.

That's true.

"Oh, we need more diversity in movies! Not just black people! Tantrum"

Get over it people. If the movie you're complaining about were the entirety of entertainment, maybe you'd have a point, but you don't. It's always been almost entirely white people or caricatures of minorities in entertainment.

But without getting into the invented controversy, Black Panther is one of my favorite Avengers, and I'm looking forward to seeing him as the main character of a full-length movie.

RE: Upcoming Movies
I've got this week off work, and i'm hoping to go to see the new movie of "My Cousin Rachel"

It's based on a book by Daphne du Maurier, one of my favourite authors, who also wrote, "The Birds", "Rebecca" and "Jamaica Inn", all filmed by Alfred Hitchcock (although "The Birds" takes only the basic premise from her story, in that birds attack humans en masse; the actual plot is entirely different).

No attempts at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my hear a deep and burning hatred for the Tory Party … So far as I am concerned, they are lower than vermin.
