In recent days, I've seen Mastrmynd use stronger words then he usually does to express his well-justified indignation with the idea that the formation of a superhero team comprised primarily if not solely, of black characters was essentially racism in reverse.
The always calm, collected and scholarly supreme who NEVER has an ill word for anyone, was moved to urge we, his fellow HEFmates, to ignore a board participant who is very likely a troll...and not even a friendly troll like Wolverine.
And now, our dear Toya. Always calm, collected and "as cool as the other side of the pillow". Toya breaks out with words hot enough to melt New York City.
I believe this sudden shortness of patience is because of the reaction of some board participants who believe that it is "reverse racism" if the word "black" is used as an identifier for one of the physical characteristics of superheroes banded together to further the cause of justice, when a reader of comic books could look at an issue of Astonishing X-Men for example, and find that with the exception of Thunderbird, all of the members of that superteam are white...or in the case of Nightcrawler, a blue-skinned mutant who happens to be German.
I believe this sudden shortness of patience is because of the reaction of some board participants who believe that it is "reverse racism" to identify those women most prominent in the feminist movement as white women when in fact, they are white. In my always humble opinion, Dora Milaje did not make that identification with hostile intentions.
I believe this sudden shortness of patience is because some board participants are too quick to dismiss any notion that a "Rocky" movie, the movie "Hoosiers", the movie "8-Mile", and the movie "Friday Night Lights" by their very nature, will appeal to the all-American penchant to root for the underdog which is then "spiced up" by the racial component - white "underdog" vs black "archtype of the ultimate man". I wonder if some of those posters who loved those movies would get the same thrill from the movie "Glory Road".
