> Speaking of TALENTED Black writers, I'm glad Marvel is FINALLY giving McDuffie the props he deserves, though it is....quite a coincidence that they assign him to FF as soon as Storm and BP join. 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.

Priest has many issues.. especially blaming Marvel for not supporting him despite his plots get hokey the longer his books run.. but in this case he's 100 % right

He's shown an ability to really do great work at times, especially political things (See the poor and retarded version as Judd Winick) and yet Marvelhas really never given him a shot. That Captain America and the Falcon book was not a shot due to no one expecting Cap's fanbse to be able to support two books.

I remember when the Avengers needed a new writer circa that UNstuff, and Priestwould have been perfect.. yet Marvel briefly went with Chuck Austin(a much worse writer)

So yeah if I were in Priest's shoes I'd hold out for a mainstream white character
