Yes, there was a conviction. But I want more.

We still live in a country too frightened to reckon with the racist foundations on which it was built and on which it still feeds, and where we are so starved for justice that we’re tossed the crumbs of the Chauvin conviction and are expected to feel full.

Marvel’s new series is exploring race. Its observations couldn’t be more timely.

As Chauvin’s defense attorney tries to convince the world that George Floyd would still be alive if only he hadn’t been so big and the crowd hadn’t been so angry, a fictional series offers a dose of reality by insisting that no matter how extraordinary a Black man is, racism still lurks around every corner.
