Ever since the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or MCU, erupted in 2008 with the release of “Iron Man,” audiences have become accustomed to the massive scale that the MCU employs with each of its movies. Moreover, audiences have grown attached and familiar with characters such as Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and the Hulk. Each of these characters bring something unique to the MCU, but there isn’t a great deal of diversity with their corresponding films considering each of these characters are white males that receive most of the screen time. Although there is some diversity with characters such as Black Widow, Scarlet Witch and the Falcon, they are primarily used as secondary characters. Until now.

Levar Stoney stopped by the Commons this morning to shake hands with Richmond students one day before the mayoral election.
While reflecting on the devastating deaths of black men that have recently occurred in our nation, I have been considering what part I can play in fostering communication and progress as a young white person in today's world. As a white person who has spent time studying and working toward social justice, I want to share some thoughts with other white people.
Craig Steven Wilder addressed the importance of universities having open, honest conversations about their racial history on Thursday.
“No loaded guns in the building! No loaded guns in the building! No loaded guns in the building,” the PA announcer demanded with a mildly worrisome amount of exasperation in her voice. “Please.”
Let's be honest: Virginia doesn't have any stellar candidates for governor this year. But that doesn't mean you get a free pass to sit out this election. It's a common misconception that state-level elections, unlike presidential or Congressional races, aren't all that important. That's just not true.
This Thursday, Virginia gubernatorial candidates Terry McAuliffe and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli will come to University of Richmond as part of the Sharp Viewpoint Speaker Series.
"I don't know anything about the candidates."
What is South African culture like? I heard this question countless times upon my return to the U.S. after my study abroad experience in Cape Town. Unfortunately, I could never provide the inquirers with a straightforward answer, but this was the unique beauty of the place I called home last fall.
A number of University of Richmond students were among the 38,685 participants in the 14th annual Ukrop's Monument Avenue 10K race Saturday morning.
Students, faculty and staff worked together last weekend to present the University Dancers' 28th annual concert, Shifting Ground: New Voices in Dance, which they had been working on since the fall.
A University of Richmond junior has already made her own website, self-published a book and conducted seminars promoting her passion: raising awareness of colorism.
There you go again
Quite frankly, Tiffani Lewis-Lockheart, you chose to make your response article a personal attack; your efforts to mask disdain are fairly thin. Secondly, I didn't think that J. Isaiah Bailey was speaking for all of us; rather, it was his own testimony. It just happens to be the bitter reality that, whether this is true in your own social bubble or not, quite a number of black students on campus have at least one experience that resonates with Bailey's poem. If you would like to verify this, randomly select ten black students you haven't met and ask them about their experiences on campus.
Have I ever been asked if I was an athlete? Yes. But believe me, there was no evident reason for doing so, other than me being a black male at this university. The majority of black males at this campus are. I'm 5 feet 6 inches and around 150 pounds. I know of at least three other people who've had similar experiences.
When I decided to write a response to last week's "poem" I had to keep in mind not to make it something personal against the author Isaiah Bailey. However, it's a difficult task because what he wrote was personal; his personal experience that he tried to generalize to all of us, something I take issue with.
Universities are places where everyone shares, or should share, at least one common objective: to learn. With that in mind, I will aver that J. Isaiah Bailey's "Being black at the University of Richmond: the whole truth" (The Collegian, February 25, p. 11) is not only disturbing but also very important. I recommend that everyone read and then re-read this piece, which Isaiah has framed as a poem, in order to gain a fuller understanding of the realities that confront African American students day after day after day here at Richmond.
Would you like to hear the truth, I know I do
