Hey! Obviously its not your job to educate me, so please feel free to ignore this, but could you explain why T’challa as a sugar daddy was on your racism bingo chart?

“Sugar Daddy T’challa” stories (which tend to be about him/a white character) typically focus on what he and Wakanda’s wealth can do for white characters. Many times, the stories that use this “trope” come across with an air of entitlement to Wakanda and vibranium that has never been present with Tony/Stark tech or Thor/Asgard’s magic.

It’s fandom seeing a country of Black people with access to wealth and deciding that these nonblack characters deserve that access as well. It takes T’challa out of character and turns him into a walking, talking ATM for white characters.
