Not woke enough? ‘Black Panther’ criticized over underrepresentation of THIS group

The new superhero film, “Black Panther,” is earning near universal praise from critics as the “first Marvel film set in a Black-ruled nation” and for its challenging of “the negative stereotypes in which the world typically views African nations.”

But remember, kids, just because you’re woke AF on one issue does not mean you’re woke AF on all issues:

Or maybe the film is just being historically accurate?

And we can’t wait for Marvel’s next superhero, Vegan Man:

Yes!
