It seems as if they only even give black writers a chance when they need someone to do a "black" book for them. I hope his run lasts well after BP and Storm leave, if only to prove to Marvel that they can have a (potentially) successful book from a Black author without making him write their "jive." I'm almost hoping someone like Priest will come back on a request to do a "black" book and basically turn in a "Bamboozled"-type script that Marvel will publish as a serious book ("we hired a black writer so the book couldn't be called racist...therefore this can't be offensive! right?").

Priest has too many issues with his blackness to do something like that imo. HE won't even do a straight up "Black" book.

I know he won't, which is why he apparently (according to him) has not worked for Marvel for so long - they kept pigeon-holing him and asking him to work on "Black" books exclusively. I can understand his frustration with them. Though I know it probably wouldn't happen, I think it'd be nice if one time he "Gave them what they were askin for," so to speak.
