No, Jer, I'm understanding you just fine and I'm responding. We're just not agreeing.

Well, there you go.  You just answered your own question.

Isn't that why any of us watch TV?

For amusement value, sure -- but not solely perverse amusement value, which is what I said.  And the direct comparison would be some successful stock broker type watching Jerry Springer for perverse amusement and then deciding to emulate the rednecks in response.  It just doesn't wash, IMO.

- Jer

Know any stockbrokers? They are done trading in time for Springer in the afternoon.   I know plenty of wealthy, intelligent, well-adjusted people who laugh their ass off at hip hop or any other form of culture they find comedic.

And teenage girls always want to know what's hip.  And when it comes to hip, African Americans pretty much set the tone for the whole world to follow.

As for Shuri, as I said, a young woman in the technologically advanced culture in the world has cable. 

  I also have a hard time believing that someone living in a real-world utopia would have all that much interest in watching American cable, except for perverse amusement value.

Oh no, I"m mindfully bashing here.

Not liking black pop culture has nothing to do with race. There are quite a few black people who don't like hip hop in general, and even more who don't like the current direction of hip hop culture.

Right, this site is a "rebuild".  Well, if something strikes you as inappropiate, please speak up.

In the context of Black Panther, what bigoted (drop that other "g" you keep adding) posts here do you see?

I need a sense of how your racial meter is callibarated.  Because if you can read that thread and only be offended once, and but you are offended here often....

Go to the CBR forums and read the thread about BP #18 under the Civil War heading.

I see the idea of Black Avengers offends you more than the "Ghetto Superstars" quip.

 I've never seen a more racially charged comic board.

So you've never been to the CBR board?  The one where, in dismissing one fan's desire to see some form of "Black Avengers" suggested they be called GHETTO SUPERSTARS.

That was the most recent piece of blantant racism I've read, but I don't go to most boards that other posters on this site reference. 

Critics of the book would have a lot more credibility if they would acknowledge and denounce statements like that when they popped up on boards.  Their silence speaks volumes.

As for the idea that Black Panther doesn't speak or act "African", this comment is inane.  You mean like people in Libya act, or how people in Somalia speak, or how people in Nigeria behave?   Because it's a big place, Africa with a lot of different cultures.  Imagine if someone said a character didn't act "European", you'd wonder if they were talking about France or Germany or Sweden, because those are three of many different distinct cultures.  Same applies here.

I suspect the motivation for this comment is he doesn't speak in a stilted format.  And references pop culture from time to time.  When I was in Egypt, I had a conversation with a middle aged local woman about Coolio.  If that could happen ten years ago, I suspect Wakanda, one of the world's most technologically advanced countries, has a radio and is familiar with today's pop music.  This may rub some readers the wrong way because they don't like black pop culture.

General Discussion / Re: San Diego Comic-Con 2006

The convention was hella cool. I loved it. Too many people on saturday though. What was really cool though was on saturday they opened the doors to the convention around nine thirty, and I went down to the Marvel booth were there was about twenty five people already in line for the John Romita Sr, John Romita Jr, Paul Jenkins, and Reginald Hudlin signing. So i got in line to get books signed by Hudlin because I already saw the Romitas and Mr. Jenkins the day before. They were suppose to start the signing at 11 but Hudlin was late so they started without him. Right exactly when I was first in line, Reginald Hudlin showed up. It was so cool, I felt so lucky. He signed all my books and was a very cool guy. they all were. Paul Jenkins and John Romita jr are very funny guys and I will buy any book they do. Thanks for coming out Mr.Hudlin to the con, it was a very cool experience meeting you, and don't worry if you don't remember me, I didn't mention I was part of the board and there was alot people in line behind me.

Yeah you should have identified yourself!  HEFfas get extra love!

At 5 minutes to 11 that day, I was a block away from the con.  Just getting to the front door from a block away took me forever.  the auto and foot traffic were insane.

My 20 month old daughter.  We ran into a Wookie (a real, 7 foot tall person in a perfect costume) at the con.  When the wookie roared at her, she just stared at him. Never scared.

Welcome to Simple Machines Forum!



Wow, this was posted in 1969; they've been waiting for us for a long time.  :)

Did they use time machines to fix the forums?  What kind of people work for Cooper?
