    Failure to include Black Lightning in the next crossover will be seen as racist.


Yeah it would seem racist but would it actually BE racist?

I'm assuming the show doesn't want to be bothered with a crossover because it does nothing to advance the story they're telling with Jefferson. That's not a racist decision but a storytelling one.




And that argument will lose all traction the first time they do a villain of the week story. Almost no series focuses on advancing the story every episode.

Yes, they've said they don't want to do a villain of the week thing, but we'll see how long they maintain that. I'm skeptical.
