"They have you hating yourself and doing their dirty work huh?...i never called anyone racist. They have you believing that a black man cant be intelligent huh?....feel sorry for you."Yes you did. You claimed that I was perpetuating the same racism that I was subjected to. Therefore, you accused me of racism. Keep arguing your stupid theory, but don't deny what you've said.

Oh wait, I forgot. Incapable of growth. Right.
Your argument is that because I was subjected to racism (let's call it what it is) in my youth that I am now trying perpetuate said treatment by disagreeing with you. I assure you, I'm not, and frankly I find the implication incredibly insulting. You seem completely incapable of accepting anyone's point of view but your own, and immediately begin assaulting the other person's character when it's found that they might have some ground to stand on.
Also, if none of us could possibly have a frame of reference that satisfies you without being black, why not say so in your thread title?
Or would that be racist?
Also, as for my not having a "frame of reference," here's mine:
I am white. I have blond hair and blue eyes and am roughly 6"4'. However, during my youth I spent seven years in a small fishing village on the tip of the Yucatan peninsula. Of the inhabitants of that town, I was one of three white people (excluding my family). This, coupled with a decades-old mentality that bigotry was okay in that socially isolated town, caused extreme friction. I was subject to racial slurs on a daily basis, spat on more than once and was regularly forced to defend myself against my will against small-town troglodytes that saw me as nothing more than a "puto gringo."
Is that a solid enough frame for you, friend?
Oh. And your argument is a non-starter. Definition number three.
"So a white writer has a better skill-set to write about a black character? And yes they should be hired based on their skill set. But i guarantee you that many are NOT hired because of their ethnicity or color and this factors in all the time...only not to our favor.Friend, where in my post did I say that a white writer has a better skill set to write about a black character? In fact, where did I mention any specific ethnicity in my post? How do you even know what ethnicity I am? I've read this entire thread, and your replies have become increasingly defensive and reactionary, probably because you're realizing that your anger is somewhat misplaced. You have yet to show one clear-cut example that supports your cause and have seen several other users cite characters and writers who defeat it. It's a non-starter, friend.
This thread is only silly to you because you it doesn't affect you adversely. If it did you would have a much different mind-set."
Comic book writers and artists should be hired based on an individual evaluation of their skill-set, just like everything else in this world. Race should never, ever factor into it. This thread is silly.
