Disgusting! Some White People Are Complaining That Luke Cage Is 'So Black'

Here we go again.

Over the weekend, folks all over the country have focused their attention on Netflix's newest original series, Luke Cage, so much so that the streaming capacity was too much to hold up at one point, crashing the site. The main topic that has everyone talking, though, is how unapologetically Black the series is, and, of course, this has some white folks upset and shouting "reverse racism."

In response to these racist trolls, some other fans of the series explained that these critics probably feel offended since they aren't the focal point as they usually are in the majority of Hollywood-produced projects.

Regardless, Marvel's Luke Cage continues to dominate on the streaming front. #Winning.
