The God of Thunder & Melted Butter

I've whined written here before about the trauma of having nostalgic idols bastardized by Hollywood (and to be fair, Marvel Comics). But nothing beats the white supremacists currently boycotting the Thor movie because a black actor was cast to play the part of a Nordic God. Some seriously sad, sick people - hopefully for the inevitable Thor sequel they'll cast Common in the role instead.
“I woke up with the sunshine, a sunshine I had never seen,” Common rapped gently over a twinkling piano accompaniment. “There was light at the end of it, reminding me to forever dream. I was dreaming I walked into the White House with love on my sleeve and love for each and every one of you, reminding you to believe.” - Washington Post
