Kristen Stewart, Zooey Deschanel, Jennifer Aniston, Katherine Heigl, Blake Lively and a whole flurry of mediocre white actresses (who btw play the same roles OVER AND OVER) are always offered roles. Meanwhile, Oscar nominated/winning black actresses (who have won other awards prestigious as well) are struggling to remain relevant. Just because there are a lot of black led TV shows coming this fall, that doesn’t mean the struggle is over or lessening. Many of these actresses have had to move onto TV roles or do both because they haven’t been offered enough (or appropriate) roles.
But white folks too quick to say we have ‘enough’ roles for Black folks in media…
tumblr’s favourites as some of dc’s finest.

Amazon school must be the dopest education ever.
At the end of The First Avenger, Fury is the first dude to walk up to Steve and say, “Sorry to tell you this, but you’ve been asleep for a long time.” At the beginning of The Avengers, Nick drags Steve into the fight, cajoles him, they even have a fun joke bet. Then in The Winter Soldier, Nick trusts Steve over everyone else, goes to him for help, talks to him like a peer, takes his advice.
Steve’s soul interaction with Coulson’s has been “creepy guy who has my cards and died.”
Why do so many people make these relationships the other way around?
i don’t think you understand how important coulson is though. he’s white and has a suit. that’s how important he is.
no, cmon, coulson is charming and humble, fury is a scary authority figure who gets really sarcastic with people. i can see why ficcers would rather ship coulson. if nothing else, someone of fury’s caliber is very difficult to write unless you have some experience of being a stern motherfucker who takes no shit. most ficcers have never mentored anyone, either, it’s a deep mystery to them how it works.
also, hooking up with your boss can be a squicky idea to a lot of people, me included.
These are good points, but I’ve seen in fandoms when the boss character isn’t black— is white or from an anime— no one has any problems having the boss (captain, sensei, professor, manager) and his subordinates fucking like rabbits. there’s actually a lot of kink there. writing sarcastic, angry, reserved authority figures (having a ton of sex) doesn’t daunt amateur ficcers when those authority figures aren’t black. See: Severus Snape, the ultimate stern, scary, sarcastic, overtly nasty asshole who fucks his way through the entirety of Hogwarts and probably a good chunk of the forbidden forest.
Also, see: Coulson is Hawkeye’s boss, nominally, and there is a galloping shit ton of kinkfic that plays on just that dynamic, even though there’s more material between Coulson and his boss, than Hawkeye and his boss. AO3 logs 4,700 results for Coulson/Fury and 11,600 for Coulson/Clint.
You’ll note that Rhodey, Tony Stark’s black friend, gets pretty much the same invisibled treatment by fandom despite being friendly, outgoing, funny, sweet, supportive, and Tony’s best friend since he was a teenager. They have a ton of chemistry in the Iron Man movies. In fandom? Not so much.
Black characters and their chemistry, sexuality, and even their relationships with white characters, are consistently ignored by fic writers who certainly don’t think of themselves as racist, but just don’t…. know what to do about race, I guess, or have quietly internalized that black people just aren’t of any particular importance. It’s a pretty blatant pan-fandom thing. It’s not an isolated ‘Nick Fury is scary’ problem.
And as you said, Coulson is white.
And he does have a suit.
my feminist goal is not to convince men that girls are of value, my feminist goal is to achieve a future where the judgement of our value isn’t in the hands of men.
and this goes for, especially goes for, trans girls, girls of colour, disabled girls and LGBTQA+ girls.
girls, all girls, and if you believe otherwise don’t reblog this.
