@arturocalakayvee: Oh no, he's not white! Blasphemy!
Seriously, read the comic before you claim he's a different character. To me, things like how the character is written means more than the color of his skin and hair.
If Wally being black is not big deal then why is Barry Allen not black? Why is Superman not black? Why is Batman not black? Why is Wonder Woman white instead of Mediterranean? It's a reboot, after all, why did they have to force the token black guy Cyborg onto the Justice League when it's such a not big deal to make someone black after a reboot?
It's stupid because it's not the same character, that's why none of the main JLers got the ol race swap. Clearly there's a difference or they wouldn't have thought about changing it. There's no point in calling him Wally West if he's not going to be Wally West. If you want more black superheroes then make more black superheros, don't take the old superhero who you deleted and replace him with "Black guy whose superpower is running fast." It's Alan Scott all over again. They're making everyone who's not their main characters random stuff because the only ones they care about are the people who show up in Justice League and you can't have any of those guys being something other than white.
I still can't believe they decided to make the guy who goes fast black. It's so freaking amazingly dumb. If he's anything like Wally he'll also be a smartass from a broken home who likes to play basketball. The black guy stereotype homerun.
Don't worry! They're hamfisting black Superman into Earth-2!
