Shuri is sort of a racist, so, probably not.

@ganon15: Because she called Ross a "colonizer" and alot of white people were shookith. She clearly isn't though.

Ross would absolutely be a brutal colonizer if he were alive in that time, so I don't think this is racist. Shuri is basically just finding a way to call him a bad person.

@the_hajduk: Funny, if it was the other way around you would be saying it’s racist.

Eh, I guess they'd be alright. I just always think of Peter with either Gwen or MJ (mostly MJ)

Ahem allow me to quote Shuri regarding Ross, "Another broken white boy to fix."

Now you go to Portland and refer to a minority as a ____boy. Good luck!

@kinglouie: First 3 points can all be shoved under one word, science, no need to break them apart to make more similarities. But Shuri was afraid of M'Baku, and was jumpscared by an old man. Last two is literally everyone especially younger people, it doesn't make you compatible with someone just because you both know a meme.

Shuri is 20 and though probably not racist she has prejudice against white people anyway. Calling two grown men white "boys" and colonizers is enough evidence, even her passive aggressive jab at Bruce makes me believe so.

No. They both need partners to re-engage them with the general world. Not suck them deeper into scientific isolation. This is why Pepper was such a good fit for Stark. Not saying they can't find smart / science type partners. Just that they need to find partners who can ground them in everyday reality.

I wouldn't say she is so much racist as she is protective of her people. After all that the Wakandans have been through it is not wrong for her to act this way towards outsiders who may pose a potential threat.

Both Ryan Coogler (BP Director) and Letitia Wright (Shuri actor) have stated that Shuri was 18 during Black Panther. A prelude comic contradicts this by saying she is 16 but they are famous for being inconsistent and it's the directors word over a borderline 3rd party book. Shuri is 20 by Infinity War and Peter is still a junior in high school.

@vulkanian: What other way around?

Ross would absolutely be a brutal colonizer if he were alive in that time, so I don't think this is racist. Shuri is basically just finding a way to call him a bad person.

The other poster was trying to say:

Black people giving white people a pejorative label - Okay for you?

White people giving black people a pejorative label - Not okay?

See the double standards these days?

Based on the new official timeline released by Marvel Studios, Avengers Infinity War and Black Panther happened in the year 2017.

@germanx: Too be fair, comparing discrimination towards white people by their black counterparts to the reverse isn't a good comparison. People from African nations don't have a good history with European settlers.

As cute as it could be, I don't think it would work... not just because Peter is a stammering awkward teenager who likely couldn't man himself up to ask, but also because Shuri doesn't appear to have very high opinions on white people in general so she is definitely not going to be asking him.

Edit: That said, I wouldn't be at all surprised if Shuri got really easily amused by more nerdy subjects... like if you consider that she was complaining about not going to Disneyland or Coachella.

They'd make great friends but not a couple. Peter is too immature and young and Shuri is too smart for him. She is like laughably smart compared to him

Not sure. She needs someone who can match her wits or at least have the charisma/confidence to match her sharp jokes.
