White nationalists/the alt-right have chosen a new target to blame “white genocide” on. This time they have attacked the upcoming Marvel movie “Black Panther.” Brian Blanc, National White Alliance president, was upset that the movie’s cast will be largely black.

“This is just another example of liberal, Jew-dominated Hollywood pushing white genocide,” said Blanc in a press release. “Let’s flip the script. If there had been a Marvel movie with an all-white cast, race hustlers like Jesse Jackson would boycott it.”

However, “Black Panther,” features the titular character who was introduced in “Captain America: Civil War.” The character is a king who leads the fictional African country Wakanda, so naturally it would feature mainly black actors.

The film, which will be released in 2018, stars Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o, Forrest Whitaker and Michael B. Jordan and is directed by Ryan Coogler, who is also African American. The movie will feature white actor Andy Serkis, who plays Klaw, one of the villains.

“Black Panther might be Marvel’s most groundbreaking project yet — not only is it a movie with a black lead, it also has a majority non white cast (indeed, none of the announced actors to date are white) and takes place in an entirely different country altogether. It’s a chance to trail-blaze not just for Marvel but for the superhero-movie genre in general,” said the Hollywood Reporter.
