Coates is a black supremacist racist polemic who blames all white people and the white race for the actions of anyone who happens to not have as much melatonin as he does. I'm not defending America's flaws and abuses... but in his distorted world view, everything bad that happened in America is because of the white patriarchy oppressing the black man. Which is more than a tad overstated. Because he is an ignorant racist bigot, he's won just about every award and accolade the left can throw at him for his juvenile, poorly sources, and erroneous writing and thoughts.

Captain of Nothing - In another flacid attempt to ruin everything, the SJW's (Ta-Nehisi Coates) was able to change Captain America to Captain of Nothing -- because America is so bad, jingoistic and nationalistic. The storyline is a leftists dream, Cap decides to surrender to the authorities and renounces America.
I have a problem with some of American history (and of course racism is a very bad part) -- but it's a small part when you look at total, and it was NOT the motivation of everything, and America did not succeed because of enslaving blacks. In fact, economists can explain how it held back the South. The places that had the most blacks are still the poorest, and don't have the most wealth inequality -- which would be required if the leftist tropes were true. So Coates problem is that he's a racist, and sees the world through racists eyes. And the far lefties want to bathe themselves in the guilt and hate that folks like Coates have turned into their brand.
