Quote:So basically you are saying "Its okay to be white". As long as we don't have white men in positions of power (in predominantly white countries).
Quote:Where did I say this?
Quote:Norvell: "I'm against white male supremacy."
Quote:What is a 'white male supremacy' if not any white males in power?
So are you a white supremacist then? Do you believe in apartheid? A while male being in power does not equate to white supremacy. Perhaps you need to look up some basic definitions.
Quote:Now If you say it means you are against white males holding ALL power, where in the West does that happen?
It was the status quo for much of American history, certainly up until the middle of the last century. It has only been through the hard work people pushing for racial equality and basic civil rights have blacks (for example) begun to make any headway. The hard work continues. The fact that voters suppression still exists is a problem. The fact that blacks don't have equal protection under the law is a problem.
Quote:On the contrary I just don't share your white/male guilt.
I don't feel guilt for anything I've done. I am ashamed of much of the history of mankind, where even in Canada there are monuments to the scalpers of indigenous people. You might be proud of such history. I know that Trump supporters in Canada -- the so-called Proud Boys -- celebrate these monuments.
I wouldn't associate myself with anything she said. She really shouldn't be working as a writer. She's barely coherent.
Quote:...you mean I am aware whats going on within the wider Marvel Comics 'Stable' and you are not. You probably think Aaron's Thor is the only comic where this sort of preaching goes on. They do say ignorance is bliss though.
I judge Aaron on his own merits, not the merits of other writers.
Quote:I showed you the tweets from some BLM leaders/supporters.
No, you showed me tweets from random people on the internet, none of whom were BLM leaders that I recognize. I'd be hesitant to believe the identity of anonymous people on Twitter, what with there being armies of paid trolls posing as black activists who incite racial tensions.
Quote:Absolutely. But seemingly Marvel (at least under Alonso) doesn't.
I find it ironic that Trump and Britain First spark less outrage in you (meaning zero outrage) than Marvel. At least you don't pretend to be balanced in your criticism.
