      The pic doesn't include Vision, War Machine or Falcon. That brings the total to 12 of which 2 are African American. 2/12 = 17%. The African American population of the US currently is 14%, so technically they're over represented. With Black Panther joining the team shortly the team will have more than addressed it's PC quota..


This is why I don't like to use the term African American.

I prefer black. Black refers to non Americans as well.

    Maybe you should include Nick Fury then you would have 3 African Americans instead of trying to shoehorn the Panther in like people alway try to do.




Yes, I may appear over sensitive about it but it really wears me down the amount of times that people call me African American whenever I am in America. When I tell them that I am just an African,they look at me like they are surprised that as an African I am not wearing some tribal costume or exotic head wear.

Do American regard the term black as being some kind of taboo word? How long before white Americans start calling themselves, European Americans and the like?
