    This movie still gets to me... makes me think about the situations I've been tokenized and its always difficult to confront that aspect of my experience. I don't think this will age well though. Having a blind man symbolically represent the racist ignorance of white folk is ableist. Specifically that he perceives he's not participating in the racism behind the coagula project because he only wants his sight restored. The critique itself is accurate, "I don't see race" is something white people say who absolutely participate in racist institutions to their benefit without being overtly racist. However, portraying blind people as covetous of sight and being willing to go as far as killing others for it is gross.

    thought this was a pretty frustrating watch honestly, not in the way it was probably intended truly fantastic performances from every lead, no doubt. Boseman gave his heart and soul

    This weeks episode was firing on all cylinders. Probably some of the best comedy writing I’ve heard.

    I also really loved them poking fun at the accent thing for a second time. “Man, that accent really comes and goes doesn’t it?”
