    You’ll NEVER learn their fitness plan. It’s so suspect to me. They all say chicken and rice for the most part. Which isn’t realistic because so much more nutrition is needed. But you’ll never get the truth I feel. I think it does involve some form of PED’s or something. Because you can already be healthy. But, they’re getting results in time frames that even for the biggest gym rats, don’t come as fast as they do. Again, it’s suspect to me.

    Anthony is correct about New Orleans, It’s my home and I’ve said “New Orleans, is like the color version of the world. Like OZ, and the rest of the world is in black and white. I Love this City!

    The similarities about Eminem and Papa Dog.
    Em always struggles in the black culture because of the color of his skin.
    Papa Dog is struggeling with being Cap because of the color of his skin.
    Amerikkka needs to unite and become the America people look up to and love. Frfr. O_O

    Yeah, I gotta disagree hard w/ N.O. being “the best city in the world”. It’s riddled with corruption and bigotry, especially the police force, which has been under investigation by the FBI dozens of times.

    I’m not saying this to attack or alienate anyone, not at all. It’s just something that exists.
    Living in America as a non-white you sometimes don’t even notice how majority of our heroes are white or light skinned. And that doesn’t mean that suddenly white heroes are bad, or now we can’t have white heroes. Someone like Steve Rogers or Bruce Wayne is irreplaceable and I love em. But as a kid, I kinda knew that culturally I could never relate to them.

    So seeing someone like Mackie triumph as Captain America is such a great feeling. I don’t suddenly want all white heroes to be replaced, but instead we share the spotlight. America is so far from perfect, but it’s also full of great people of all different colors and cultures and it gives me hope when our heroes reflect that

    Black people being payed millions by rich white guys to pretend that racial in equally is over……news flash, it’s not. Blacks are still paid 75% of what whites are paid for the same job and 50% less likely to get a job than a white guy with the exact same qualifications.

    That was Beautiful, The Falcon ( Captain America ) and The Winter Soldier I hope, because the writing, acting, directing was so tight and delved deeply into the PTSD of Veterans who are Super Heroes,.As well as people caught with the after effects of the Blip, and the real side effects of Ordinary War and Super Mortal and Alien war. I think the Series should Get an Emmy, A Golden Globe, An Oscar, be shown at Sundance and at Cannes. Really Excellent work.
    Thank you..
    As a Vet I salute you.

    My 4yo daughter: “Hey, That’s Captain America! He has a shield like mine.” (she’s got a plastic one) Anthony Mackey is her first Captain America, and that makes me happy. She’ll also be very confused when she does eventually see one with Steve rather than Sam.

    I know they usually save all the superficial comments about fashion for the female celebrities, but Captain America’s costume and wings are MAGNIFICENT. I had to stop the show to get the full effect, then rewound that scene to watch it all again. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!!! And the scene at the end with Isaiah had me sobbing. Brilliant. Just brilliant. We need more, like now. CUT THE CHECK!!!

    My only ‘problem’ with TF&TWS is the same I had for the last two seasons of Game of Thrones. That is – I have no problem with the plot lines, but everything just feels too rushed. Every two episodes really should have been stretched over THREE. At the very least.
