Can I just say that one of my very favorite parts of Winter Soldier was Nick Fury cocking an eyebrow at the police officers side-eyeing his expensive vehicle and sneering, “You wanna see my lease?”

Because the idea of Nick Motherfucking Fury having to deal with shit as disgusting and petty as racial profiling is sort of painfully realistic and heartbreaking.  He’s hugely, massively powerful, and he’s sitting in his bulletproof car pondering decisions of worldwide import, but also he gets pulled over sometimes and asked for his registration because the police assume he stole it.  

Ack.  I was just so pleased that they included that line.

yeah the import of that really struck me the second time I watched the movie.

The driving while black bit was one of my favorite parts.

Yeah, this really struck me the second time when I wasn’t just sitting there terrified his car would blow up at any moment. It really makes you think of all the shit he had to go through to get where he is today and still the police give him the side eye when he drives up in an expensive car. Also, obviously we find out later they’re HYDRA agents but the car chase scene is literally a bunch of white guys in police uniforms shooting at a single black man and it’s an image we’ve seen a million times (on the news, in the movies, even on Agents of Shield with Mike Peterson) only this time the police are the bad guys and we’re rooting for Nick. I just thought, especially in the context of scene preceding it where it’s made clear that Nick’s had to deal with racism and profiling that it was a interesting choice to make HYDRA the police.

This post is golden and I thought the same thing as well.

Until you find out that the police were HYDRA, you really thought it was a situation where they were eying Fury suspiciously because it was a black man driving a nice SUV in Washington D.C. aka the ‘driving while black’ issue.

And you aren’t made to feel like you’re paranoid because he thought that too.

Shit happens so many times it’s ridiculous and that was a great scene because it reminds you that racial profiling of black men/people still exists no matter how much money or power the black person in question has.

Nick Fury knows where he stands both inside and outside of S.H.I.E.L.D. and he knows his Level 10 clearance does nothing for him when he’s driving next to DC police. And a black dude running from a bunch of white “cops” in an expensive looking car? Yea no, as if any random person on the street would see that and think Fury was in the right in that situation. Genius move on HYDRA’s/Pierce’s part.

Really glad they slid that in there.

That scene + Nick “dying” = me ready to fucking leave the theatre.

I was impressed by Nick killing all the racist crackerjacks (Never thought I’d live to see that in a Disney film) but then it was followed by his “death” so I was super discouraged.

I’m so glad they put all of that in there which is why I’m throwing all my money at this film because half the main cast is black and it’s just very pro black man, it makes me so fucking happy.

cap & bucky comics crap: a masterpost!



Okay, so I answered an ask about where to start reading comics if one wanted to get into the Winter Soldier storyline, and it was cool, but you know what’s cooler? MOAR COMICS. I’ve put up some modern stuff to get if you want your heart broken into a million pieces by Steve Rogers and his faithful sidekick Who the Hell is Bucky.

Below the cut are some comics I’ve labelled as clearly as I could and split into story arcs for ease of downloading and reading. This is mostly volume 5, which isn’t the end-all be-all and seriously, seriously, if you enjoy any of this please read other Cap comics because there are some amazing Cap comics out there.

If you’ve any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. All of this crap should be on Amazon as well, so if you enjoy, consider buying etc.
