Powers and Racism

Posted by Rasarima (371 posts) - - Show Bio

I always liked super heroes but never spent enough time on this thought, I simply liked. Up to now.

I know the best way to end racism is to "stop talking about it" (Morgan Freeman), but I'll just put the matter of my pride.

I want to say that the black characters are not seen as black, but by the skill they possess. All the superheroes are not matter the colour (purple, green, black, white, pink etc) are seen by its history and only that ... and this is very good.

dosen´t matter if an alien or a mutant, every comic fan, even the racist one, love´s it..

I hate the Martian Manhunter simply because he is green. He needs to get off his lazy ass in the JLA watchtower and get a job like a respectable human. These aliens think that they can come to Earth just because their planets suck so much... but they can GET OUT. There isn't enough work for the hardworking decent Earthlings like Batman with these metapowered freaks running around.

I have to wonder, are there any black heroes or villains who has a code name that starts with the word White?

The new Perry White is Laurence Fishbourne. Not really a super hero, but the word White is there

Ebony White from the Spirit? Although the way he's drawn is so f*cking racist.

He's making a very insightful point... to understand that point you should now ask yourself how many black heroes or villains have a code name that starts with the word 'Black'?

See what he's saying now?

Ok, White is a color, Black is also a colour. Black super heroes are somewhat rare, so puting "white" in every caucasian hero is....you know.

Put "Black" is bad, i know, but not THAT bad, and i remember a talk about Mrs T and Black Lighting and the topic was exactly that.. "why BLACK Lighting ?"

because they made a black superman based on barack obama

which is leftist pandering and leader worship material

race and modern politics shouldn't have a role in comic books

they do it on purpose and it's sickening

a superhero or villains race shouldn't be an issue if someone is white or black that shouldn't define anything about their character

the issue of racism is a never ending issue it's been around since all the different human's discovered each other

people act like it is only a modern problem but humanity has been facing the issue forever and it will never end

egypt and rome tried diversity and multiculturalism and it didn't work

china was a mono-racial society and isolated themselves because they knew the issue of race is a waste of time and money and they would rather be without it

that's why they built a great wall
