Ah! Burn for the gift of sight.

ASK.   BEG THE SUN FOR LIGHT.   

My desert from your native land how many a league divides! / Yet by your power the waters of my heart feel these rough tides. / To what far gathering are you bound, from what far gathering / come? / Your face is blanched, as if from journeyings long and wearisome. / You in this universe all light, and I all darkness, share / One destiny together in our valley of despair; / I burn in a flame of longing, ah! burn for the gift of sight, / And you, all seared with fires of longing, beg the sun for light; / And if your footsteps cannot stray from one fixed circle's bound, / I too move in one circle as a compass-hand moves round.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------(THE MOON, BY IQBAL).

Topic:DIVERSITY IN THE MARVEL UNIVERSE
Anthony Mackie:We’re in a day and age where kids deserve someone they can look up to. I’m very proud of Scarlett with what she’s been able to do with Black Widow, and how little girls can sit back and see that she doesn’t have to have superpowers, she’s just a badass. While being cool and a chick. And I like the fact that little brown kids can say, ‘hey, the Falcon is there now’, and little green kids can say, ‘the Hulk’s there’. Don’t want to leave out the Martians. I think it’s very important, and I think Marvel has been at the forefront of that, giving people the opportunity to represent every aspect of culture. It’s definitely something that was on the table, and on my mind when I decided to sign on to this project.
Topic:FANS COMPLAINING ABOUT CASTING ON GROUNDS OF RACE
Anthony Mackie:Superman, black would be the coolest dude in the world. Imagine Sam Jackson in a cape. Running around. That would be a good movie.
I think what a lot of people don’t get is, these people aren’t real. If you cast a black dude as John F Kennedy, that’s wrong. If you cast a white dude as Martin Luther King, that’s wrong. These people aren’t real. The suits aren’t real. There aren’t really superheroes in the world.
At some point in time, you have to steep yourself in reality and say, ‘hey, it’s not about what they look like, it’s about casting a good actor in the role. If you’re sitting at home and you can’t see a black guy as Nick Fury, maybe there’s something wrong with you.
