Wow. Can it get any worse than this?
« on: January 07, 2007, 08:47:08 pm »
This is the thread Thatguy refered me to that he participated in.  These folks are truly trashing the series without having read the book.  50% of their facts are completely wrong. ???  And they take the racial stuff to an extreme.

Geez, these threads are popping up everywhere.  They seem to increase with the book's popularity.

That's what pisses me off the MOST. If they didn't like the book just because, that's one thing. But they're just making UP sh*t!!

I think we finally found a board even more racist than X-Fan!

Actually, it IS moderated. And they think we're bad?

I think the best thing about these posts is that they expose a lot of the ugliness that has plagued the comics community for too long.  It also proves that the industry definitely needed a high profile black creator on a high profile black character.  No disrespect to Priest or McDuffie, but I think it took a successful industry outsider like Hudlin to really shake all this mess out.

And because of Hudlin, it'll be easier for cats like McDuffie or Priest. Hudlin - he's like Martin Luther King, in a way. ;)

I'll step in when Reginald starts scarifying them insanely stupid some more,like he did with #1 and a few other memorable issues.I mean,this brutha had MALCOLM X IN HIS COMICS! never,ever ever ever ever have I seen that in a Big Two book.It might be a first in MU history.Yo,RH...do you know if you pulled off ANOTHER first? While you're off checking,I'ma be over here saying:

"We declare our right to be a man...to be a human being...in this society on this earth in this day and this time...which we will bring about...by ANY MEANS NECESSARY!"


I read some of the link.More accurately,I skimmed the unbelievable ignorance and racism apparent in just the first page,and then I stopped reading. Frankly,the colossal dooficity is such that at first I was mildly annoyed and was going to drop some ILLUMINATION on them,but as I read further,it became utterly apparent to me that they are utterly set in their ways and WILL NOT CHANGE WHATEVER THE COST,therefore me dueling with them on THEIR site about THEIR conversation is largely a waste of my time.Maybe I might be able to impact the thinking of 1 out of a dozen or so ignoramuses there.MAYBE.But to cause a complete change of mind...much less a sea change (and these kats need more  than a sea change,they just need JESUS,lol,like D.L. HUGHLEY says),is just unrealistic.It's a battle that should only be waged just to vent the frustration of the speaker,or hoping to hit that elusive one of ever dozen or score or more....and that's IT.That's ALL.

I can't decide if its moderated by David Dukes or David Dukes's 10 year old.
