This exchange makes me laugh.

I really really hate it when non American Black characters/people are called African American. I’m not sure why it bothers me so much. Knee jerk response to Americanocentrism, I guess.
(there was this article about… something like 50 best Stan Lee characters or something, which wasn’t very good otherwise anyway), anyway at some point it had T’Challa and they were boasting that he was the first mainstream African American superhero and I think I actually yelled at my computer screen.
