Can everybody who's actually read BP #19 raise their hands?

Can everybody who hasn't read the book but feels entitled to talk about it anyway raise THEIR hands?

Just checking.

On another note, I notice in my area employers tend to hire foreign blacks more so than black americans. Why is that?

Immigrants tend to be from terrible circumstances and are willing to work harder for less than any American.

Hello everyone,

I am (quite obviously) new here.  I am a massive fan of T'Challa and have been my entire comics reading life.

I just purchased #19 today, and had a MAJOR question about a particular part.

Doom: I've always said the African is a superior physical specimen.
T'Challa: Finish the sentence Doom. "...which compensates for his lack of intellect."
Doom: Generally true, yes. But clearly the Wakandan is exceptional. Perhaps a low-grade mutant strain in your peoples' DNA.

This scene makes Doom come off a racist, something he never has been in his 30+ years of history.  If anything, his hatred of everyone is quite color blind.  I was just wondering if the scene was meant to convey Doom has having racist issues, or if I'm just reading too much into it?

Welcome YSC. Cool tag.

Lots of people (I noticed a thread on another board) worried about Doom's image.  Murderous?  Fine.  Egomanic? Of course. But racist?  Now you've gone too far!!!  He's out of character.

Actually, in a previous encounter with Panther, Doom did dismiss Wakandans as savages. But more importantly, DOOM doesn't think he's racist.  Would be offended if you suggested so.  He thought he was COMPLIMENTING T'Challa. That kind of casual racism is pretty common....I hear comments like that from the nicest people all the time.

I was wondering that myself.  Too bad the old board is gone.  But I'm glad this level participation is so high for a positive thing, not a flame war.

Got Beyond! # 2
Why aren't the Big Two begging Dwayne McDuffie to write for them? Beyond has everything, action, laughs, new characters, old characters, great dialogue and art to match. Leading on ro the death of Spider-Man in issue#1, Medusa rips into Venom, and readers amy find a touch of the Panther in here - she's regal, even in her anger, she never forgets that she is representing her kingdom, and when she finally has Venom pinned down... Damn. The other characters are portrayed brilliantly - Hank Pym clearly trying to mend his relationship with his ex-wife, wh oin turn is trying to organise and corral the dysfunctional group she's found herself with. The newbie hero and villain, Gravity and The Hood are both at once out of their depth, and also displaying exceptional determination. Most of the characters I've only read in these 2 issues, but they are portrayed so clearly, I could have been reading them for years.

Also, in terms of cliffhangers, the last page is just the definition of 'dramatic', plus the action hero joke that ends the issue is just perfect.

Buy it!

I couldn't agree more.  BEYOND is as good as anything in the marketplace today.

Two of the greatest political leaders of the last century...we've learned so much from both.  But if you had to choose....!

Yeah, Issabella's a fan, and I lent my BP run to a friend of mine who was an X-Fan back in the day, and collects on-and-off, and now we've got yet another fan! HIs opinion was that he was amazed, and said it was some of the best writing he'd read since Sandman! He also said it was the first time he'd seen Storm done as a proper 3-dimensional character, and that the writing really showed up how underdeveloped some characters like the X-Men really are, in comparison to BP. Obviously, he also loved the art, even down to the colouring.

Reggie seems such a divisive, love/hate writer, that I was a little nervous lending my stuff out, but I'm glad my friend came down on the side of righteousness.

Wow, that is so wonderful!

this is f*cked up.  Any black youth who would admit to gang affiliation would more than likely never be hired as a police officer.  All that BS you see on TV where someone was in a "gang" as a youth and is now a cop doing good is crap, if anyone ever admited to gang affiliation in a police interview they would never be issued a gun and a badge.

Unless you are a hillbilly from nebraska I guess. 

Boom there it is.

let add prominently displayed as well,

Thank goodness it takes THREE black superheroes together to be a big deal these days.

Of course, that could be considered sad too...

okay, things have been up and down.  My public enemy/can't truss it poetry bombed pretty bad (the kids couldn't see past flavor flav).  Whatever though.  Slightly cool momment of the first two weeks.

This kid I've had in class for 2 years now was telling me how he's "gangster".  I'm like "gangster" as in a real gangster or gangster in the figurative sense.  He said "in the figurative sense" (well not in those words, but more or less). So I said, how about saying you're a samurai?  Samurai are way cooler than gangsters, and it conveys the same feelings you were trying to convey.  He actually thought that was cooler.  Word.  I guess you gotta take the small sucess when you can get them...  8)

Good work, my friend.  This generation lacks proper language to discuss masculinity, so they are constantly reaching for the wrong label.

That's cool...Karibu is a store that has some great literature (their Pentagon City location is close to my FT job).  Wonder if NYC's Hue Man Experience (once considered the largest Black owned book store in America) is carrying BP too (met the former owner ...Clara Villarosa again at a Book Trade Show here in DC).

She appreciated the shout out I gave them in Black Panther...was that issue #10?, with the intro of Cage?  they might be carrying trades now.  Can someone in NY check?

Are there any other sites that discuss BP?  I know there are X boards that focus on Storm (it will be interesting if they follow the character with BP), but I don't know of any other than the BP Message Board, and the Newsarama guys.

Mr. Hudlin check out my posts on under forum and other marvel titles and you will see that people do post positive things about BP on that board...your title's popularity has grown within the last few months (especially now that Storm has a high profile in your stories).

Thanks, I'll check it out.

General Discussion / Re: Sneakers...

I was in a meeting with Kevin Hart, and when he peeped my limited edition Nike Ethiopians, the whole meeting stopped and he tested my sneaker knowledge.  I faked my way through. 

were those the orange and white ones you had at SDCC?  Heh.  Those were dope.

Furie and I were talking about sneakers on that saturday, it was funny we were both wearing classic nike's that day.   8)

Those weren't them, thanks for the love though.  The Ethiopians are blue with white trim.  I got a hook up at UNDEFEATED on LaBrea.  Any LA locals need to fall through there for sick joints.

Since there is no shortage of violent, well armed knuckleheads in our community, why doesn't one of them pay this bus driver a visit and..."talk" with him?  I bet that will discourage that behavior BIG TIME.
