DC seems to believe readers will only pay attention to minority characters if they're riding the coattails of a popular white hero.
Miles Morales is just as bad. He should have been given the respect to have his own identity other than being "black Spider-Man". They even had his fucking Uncle die just like Peter...
Agree to disagree, I guess.
To me, the mask/hero is more of an idea or a representation. Different people can wear it. It's not like theyre saying "oh Bruce Wayne is black now"
How many white characters have taken the mask/hero of a black character? Exactly.
Black comic readers deserve another Black Panther or Spawn, not all these lazy race swaps. The comics industry needs to do better, not lazily pander and pat themselves on the back.
I don't disagree, but you and I both know the likelihood of a new IP catching on to the heights of something on par with Batman or Spider-Man are bleak.
Would you be this upset if this new Batman were just some white guy? As long as this isn't some overtly pandering nonsense, I don't see the issue.
Also, for those who are about to go freak out about Batman being black, this sounds like an Elseworlds story in every way but name so.. not a big deal.
Will we ever see Peter Parker as Spider Man again? I doubt it.
I don't know about comics. But I doubt we'll be seeing a white Spidey in any future films or video games.pretty sure Future State is only a 2 month event, then Tynion IV will go back to Batman, so yeah.
What? ASM 54 just came out this week... it’s still Peter... not to mention Symbiote Spider-Man miniseries, upcoming Non-Stop Spider-Man, the Abrams’ Spider-Man miniseries, there’s a zillion Spider-Man books Marvel shits out every month, Peter is going nowhere.
They don't want to reject it because they like it – i.e. they choose to consume it. For example, Spiderman: Miles Morales explicitly pays tribute to BLM:They don't want to because of it, though. That's the whole purpose of brainwashing.
That’s fair enough, we’ll see. I personally think we will have both and Peter and Miles and more from the spider-verse.I don't know about comics. But I doubt we'll be seeing a white Spidey in any future films or video games.
Sorry about the double post. My bad.
Not interested. Pass.
How about we elevate the existing black DC heroes who have been neglected in the last 5 years?
That's what everyone says at first. "It's just a spin-off!" or "Bruce Wayne is still white!". But that's not how black-washing works. Will we ever see Peter Parker as Spider Man again? I doubt it. This is a symbolic appropriation of our culture and its icons. To return to Bruce Wayne would be seen as regressive.
As demographics in the West change, this will become more and more common. Whites will be erased from history, beginning with their pop-culture. You won't even be granted a reservation to hide-in, because such spaces are "racist" and will be painted as a breeding ground for white-supremacy. This might not matter to those who remember when Batman was "some white guy". But the next generation will know nothing else. They will be raised in a world without any white role models.
The writing is on the wall; was there a single white-male protagonist in any of the games announced at the awards? I genuinely didn't see one when I scanned over the newly announced titles.
That's garbage and you know it. This image was going around years ago. Why are you talking about white-genocide?Right.
Google isn't trying to wipe out "white history" with that search result. You're making the same mistake Douglas Murray made, and I happen to like Douglas Murray.
Google image results are based on popularity, relevance and recent articles that have used these images with pages linked to European historical figures.
Due to what happened in 2020 with the BLM movement, a lot of websites put up pages detailing historical, black Europeans.
Calm yourself. Nobody is trying to wipe out "white history" and there is no such thing as "white genocide".

Demographic replacement is a fact. Blackwashing is a byproduct of the systematic erasure of whiteness from media. I'm sure there were Native Americans who thought like you as well. How did that work out?You were the one talking about wiping out White people and reservations for white people. You tell me.
How do you know it's not garbage? How do you know it's a campaign to wipe out white history. Show me you're evidence.
Before you do however, maybe you should make this into a new thread. I doubt you'd get any support for such wild and dangerous claims, but it's better than derailing a thread about Batman.
The UK Government Census.

Who is "We?" The graph stops at 2011 because that's when the last census was taken. But do you really think the non-white population has decreased after ten years? We'll know soon enough, when we take another one next year.LMAO
You have more foreign people in your country. So what. Whites aren't being erased, we are just crap at having big families.
Anyway, I was talking about erasure of white people in media, not population percentages.
And why do you graphs stop at 2011 anyway?
