Please, Maj, don't hurt 'em!
I love that he's just this dude with a shield but his drive is so great that he defeats guys far more powerful than him. What I love the most about this is that given that he's just a dude with a shield that means that he has to work hard everyday to keep being good.
I love that he has no life, that he's Cap 24hour a day. That's so...him!
I love that he has no arrogance and that he pretty much accept anybody and will give anybody always a second chance(sometime a 10th chance) like he did with Diamondack and so forth.
I love that he's a good person even if people say it makes him bland.
Cap is not a messiah but we have to accept that like Superman, he's a good person that likes to do good with nothing attached. And that he's the best fighter you can have on any battlefield. If those two elements make it repulsive for some readers, well maybe they have issues.

I like Captain America in general but lately in 616 I think he has too much power (authority wise) and I really didn't like it Secret Avengers where he had innocent people tortured.
Captain America has been one of my favorite characters since I was a child and is still in my top 5.
Yes, the guy is a goody-goody but that's why I love the character, it's too easy to just give in to your negative emotions/thoughts and the popular opinion. To believe in something and stand by it, come hell or high water is admirable, honorable even. If you stand for nothing you fall for anything. He doesn't give up just because things are tough or seem impossible to win, he just keeps on keeping on. It's too easy to just give up, walk away and abandon things. He's patriotic but not blindly so. He loves his country and it's people but he knows it's government isn't innocent. He never abandons his ideals and what this country is and should be about. He isn't some flag waving sheeple. People should want to be more like him, not less like him.
Having a moral compass and standing by my principles hasn't always been very popular with other people but I feel better about myself for having stuck to my guns regardless of the outcome.
privileges of whiteness do you also enjoy? There is privilege there just like I have privilege by being born a man.
Not here to lecture but you do realize there are many other people that face worse bigotry than you do? Can you connect to them or is this all about you?Do not presume to lecture ME about the bigotry I endure on a daily basis.
So laws that protect white privelege are ok? Got it. I know that's not what you mean but you are doing a good job of implying that."No discrimination" means NO discrimination. Not reverse discrimination, which is what these laws to "protect minority rights" amount to.
Are you defending the homophobic, racist, fake Christianity that is all the norm on Duck Dynasty?You cannot use a wrong to make "right" another wrong. And it is further not right to critcize non-"minority" citizens for standing UP for their interests.
Come on now, take those race debates somewhere else. Somewhere far far away. This is a topic for Captain America.
