Marvel’s Anthony Mackie, the star of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, is now complaining that his position as Captain America was difficult because America prevents black men from being successful.
“I’ve worked so long in this business, and I’ve done so many things that I felt were not appreciated or overlooked or things that were not considered to be worthy of promotion — and this is like my first promotion,” Mackie said.
Really? So because it took him a while to get a break, it has to do with his skin color? No, that is just part of life. We all do things that feel unappreciated and overlooked. There are a lot of us who work our butts off and feel like we deserve a promotion that never comes.
It is not a special thing tied to skin color. It is something we all experience.
“The fear of representing a country who doesn’t represent you, you know, was something that’s not only unfathomable but hard to overcome,” Mackie added. “My dad always used to say greatness is as far as you can see it… There are limitations that we place on ourselves because of our surroundings. And, you know, I did that to myself, and that’s definitely what Sam Wilson goes through.”
Leave it to a famous actor making millions to preach about oppression.
