Detective John Jones is tracking a criminal to Africa, which we all know is just a giant jungle with no cities or anything. Circumstances force him to use his powers, but there’s a catch! With J’onn’s previously seen abilities of shape-shifting or even simple invisibility (which he used to stay under the radar in his […]
If you do not know of the joy that is “Roy Raymond, TV Detective”, then you have my pity. Roy was a supposed genius who ran a “Believe it or Not!” type TV show called “Impossible… But True!,”. The basic gist is that someone would always try some sort of obviously faked scam and Roy, […]
Batman and Robin are trying to track something down (I forget what. This is a post I lost that I’m re-writing. Poison, I think). The sole clue is a map with push-pins in different countries. First, they go to Mexico. “Gosh Batman, it sure is convenient that there’s apparently only one bull fighting arena in […]
This is an…interesting reaction. “Hey, Talks-Like-Caricature, chill out! They’re just smoke signals. We use them all the time. Why are you freaking out?” Also, how the heck does he get the smoke to hold that shape?
Tell me I’m seeing things. Did that policeman just use the word I think he used?
This is very serious. See? This are a serious rule (sorry, too many LOLcats). Okay, more like a guideline? This was the best panel I could find to illustrate that whenever the Titans go into space, they start killing left and right. Even Robin blasted a few. Pretty funny, considering the way he’s always telling […]
Feel the hate? Convenient that the Newspaper just happened to have Chinese typesetting. I wonder how much extra it costs. Also, what are the odds that The Batman only knows one person of Chinese descent? But the first panel’s the real kicker. See, based on the murder weapon, The Batman has already figured out that […]
To me, the Citadel aliens smack of racial caricature, much as Jar Jar Binks did. They speak broken “English”, are ebony skinned, are shown to be lazy and greedy, and are womanizers. What’s worse is that I can’t decide if I’m actually seeing something or if I’m actually being racist by making this connection. Here’s […]
Spidey is Homo-mermanus-phobic. I can see the Daily Bugle Headline now… “Spider-Man: Racist or Bigot?”
Run Mal, RUN! No wait, jump!
Mal Duncan came on the scene shortly after Garth left. Everyone welcomed him. Well, it looked like they did, anyway? Wally was, of course, “just kidding”. Riiiiight.
I love this. Peter Parker really is “whitey”, on so many, many levels.
The thing about being a black comic book character is, nine times out of ten, it’s your defining characteristic. Still, this goes a bit far: “Gee Maddy, you think? She looks just like her.” “Well I’m sorry, but they all look alike to me.” Labor Day plans, so I posted early.
But they sure are purty. Here’s a side of Cyclops I suspect you didn’t know about? Has that ever been anything but a slur? I think not.
I don’t really get this. I hope the image is large enough so you can see the utterly horrified expression on everyone but Scott’s faces. “Oh no, a mutant! Kill it!” “Wait no- we’re mutants.” “Oh.” “Too late.”
So what, Mutants are like dogs? Oh, just the evil ones? Okay, sure, that makes it better. Racists.
Y’know, there’s such a thing as taking attorney-client privilege too far. How nice. She makes a racial crack and Eric Masterson responds my objectifying her. It’s okay kids! Women like being talked to that way, really! Incidentally, one of my favorite Eric Masteron factoids is that every woman he meets seems to fall in love […]
I Can’t Help it. I am very much a child of the 80’s. Show of hands, who else now has the theme music from “He-Man” running through his or her head? Plus…. Subtle Racism? Note this sequence, pleaseÂ… So what, the only Avenger Keith doesn’t recognize is the only non-Caucasian (She-Hulk doesn’t count!)?
At last, we see where Thor gets his bigotry. Odin. “Yes, they sure can work, the filthy savages.”
The god of thunder sets off to put some uppity trolls in their place. (I almost made an internet Troll joke, but mayhap it was too easy). I’m going to start posting Thor, WW, and Superman all at once for some variety.
Either Hercules takes his basketball very seriously.. â€¦or he’s a racist. Somehow I can’t imagine the Prince of Power as a basketball aficionado. Morts gave me a whole bunch to pick from for this week. Being Irish and Scottish, I had to go with this one. – MacQ. … Morts’ shabbos goy
Ever wonder what Batman would be like if he were African-American? Paul Levitz gives us the answer in one of the Huntress back-up stories to Wonder Woman. Blackwing. Of course. Because he has to have “black” in his name. otherwise, how would people know? I’d love to see Black Canary rescue someone and have them […]
… The Silver Age Brilliance that was Egg-Fu! He’s a giant, sentient Asianegg with a racist speech pattern. Oh, and he has powers. Scary ones. Yes, the mustache is prehensile. You know, “The Mustache Trap” would be an awesome title for a 1970’s all-male adult film.
