...especially against the writer who blazed a trail at Marvel and elsewhere for Black writers in a (thankfully, decreasingly less) "white boys' club" industry. It's not "just about perception." It's about calling into question the personal make-up of a great writer (and not such a bad person).

It's disrespectful first and self-admittedly ignorant (you haven't even read his work) second. You're not flattering yourself.
