Seriously DC Comics: get a black friend. Male or female, it doesnâ€™t matter, just get one. Weâ€™re easy to find. Get one and then ask him if itâ€™s cool to have Africa ruled by a monkey. Just run it by them, real casual-like. “Hey man, what do you think about this?” If they give you the gasface or their eyebrows narrowâ€¦ change your plans.
[…] I get that you guys donâ€™t actually care about colored folks. Theyâ€™re just action figures yet to be produced, a checkbox waiting to be ticked on the path to a “diverse” universe. Your track record has proven that, and as much as I wish otherwise, I canâ€™t really fault you for it. Youâ€™re in the business of making profit, and black people donâ€™t sell to the pet market youâ€™ve groomed. It is what it is. This is the world we live in.
But for really real, though: you seriously need to get a black friend.
