Just yesterday, a woman wrote an article analyzing what she thought was a poor comic book cover, and she was met with just a bunch of shitty anonymous people being awful to her online. I think that a huge problem is people who read comics and don’t understand the point of superheroes, which is to be the best version of yourself. You love Captain America? Well, you know what Captain America would never do? Go online anonymously and shit on a girl for having an opinion.

Wait, wait, wait, I have an amazing new idea. How about we fix the American school system.

Important reminder: Everyone on the internet is a real person.

Go read this. It’s really important.

Be kind to one another.

As a POC, I think you're being a bit too 'social justice'y about the whole movie Lucy. They portray everyone as the bad guy. Whites, blacks, asians- they've all been villains at some point. Hollywood doesn't try to demonize POC; that's an inaccurate generalization. Every color of skin has negative stereotypes, and they all get played on. I think you're reading into it too much. I can understand the offense you feel, but again, only a film. Few unintelligent people are going to take it seriously.

If there were as many POC heroes as there were villains, this wouldn’t be such a problem. Yes, Lucy is only one film but when this happens, film after film, with no POC heroes/heroines to make up for it, it’s a problem to me. This isn’t just about how white people see POC on screen, it’s also about how POC see themselves portrayed on screen. 

"It’s also about how POC see themselves portrayed on screen."

This is something a lot of people who make apologies and excuses for the utter lack of diversity in our media often forget. There are issues of racism involved, but it almost feels as if the detractors are more interested in proving their innocence and moral superiority, rather than actually considering that the problems of leaving out/villifying entire groups of people are actually fucking hurtful and damaging. 

As opposed to admitting that what this is happening is hurting other people, they’d rather deny that a problem even exists.

Does Pathfinder count?  

Pathfinder and some D&D.

D&D with past Pathfinder posts

When I do charity events dressed as Batgirl, all the children of color are absolutely overjoyed. They literally embrace me and I can see them realize that their own race and skin color is not a hindrance to their creativity, as everything they see and experience has been telling them ever since they were old enough to process media.
The white children are hesitant and some attempt to quiz me or insist that I’m not ‘right’ or ‘real’. They are repeating what they have been told and what they have seen all their lives. I explain that Batman believes that anyone can be a hero if they are a good person and work hard, no matter what they look like. So of course Batgirl and Robin can be Black or Chinese or Spanish or anything, because that doesn’t change who they are.
The kids accept this and by the end of the event we’re all holding hands and talking about video games. I think representation is more important than ‘accuracy’ and I won’t be involved with an organization that doesn’t agree with that.

Jay Justice, on whether costumers who dress for charity events should only portray characters ‘accurately’ or not, with implications that ‘accuracy’ means that a non white person should limit themselves to canonical characters of color. (via msjayjustice)

Jay Justice is more Batgirl than anyone I know.
