I keep seeing jokes about how if Sam (Falcon) gets to be Captain America, they should make Bucky be Black Panther. It's said as a sort of ironic joke, and it pisses me off because there is this implicit assumption that "American" means "White". Even more so, "White Guy."

I think Captain America should be constant different and changing, from one issue/episode to the next. Cap's a black guy from New Orleans today, tomorrow he's a Sihk with an A on his turban, next time it's a enby Philippian.
