    Her hair is light. That's what I meant to say.

    I have to ask, is it a coincedence that you actually talk like the character in your profile pic is that something you do intentionally?

    No disrespect, I like Hank McCoy a lot...

    White men would rather see heroic Aryan gods swing their hammers, or genetically-modified blonde haired, blue eyed super soldiers hold up their unbreakable shields of freedom than see an empowered, naked African goddess at one with the earth and air fight for the oppressed and marginalized.

    But you are right, Babylon is falling, and the Storms of the earth shall rise and inherit paradise!
    At which point do you just come out and call them "white devils"?

    Where's a scan of Evil!Jean smacking Slave!Storm around when you need one.

    Edit: Oooh, that panel of Sinister referring to her as a colonial pet would work, too.

    Storm's been platinum blonde in the comics since GSXM1 for anyone that can tell their colours apart.

Look up the word negro for reference. Like Deus Ex Machina said "rugs are oriental, people are asian." Try referring to an asian person as oriental and see how they look at you.

    your wikipedia article only shows that calling "anything that belongs to the eastern world" oriental wouldn't refer to people, since people aren't things. Asians are asians, just like africans are africans...and europeans are europeans...and so forth.

    but let's get back to the point of the thread...ridiculous as it is...
    My experience with Asians is that the only thing that offends them that much is if you call them the wrong nationality, e.i. calling a Korean "Chinese" or whatever. They seem to be too busy being productive to waste much time getting offended. A lot of the PC stuff is people getting offended on behalf of other people most of the time. As a white guy, there is nothing you could say about me from a racial point of view that would ever offend me. We won't be truly equal from a social standpoint until everyone is like this. Words only matter if you let them. In other words if people stop getting their jimmies rustled about this stuff then the words will be marginalized and become irrelevant, problem solved.

    Would this thread still be open if it had been started by a bronze badger?

    The majority of comic book readers are white males, apart from a really good catch we dont flock to minority character titles with any lasting presence. Apart from that its more of a YAY IM BLACK diversity as a gimmick that dies off pretty quickly. See: sales of Ultimate Spidey, black panther, blade, etc.

    I personally think we are waist deep in a reverse racist era of america where white males are pushing back with a hidden racism. Thank years of being told we suck for our gender and skin color while being passed over for jobs and promotions for "quotas". It didnt take more than a half dozen times of being told a place was only hiring women or minorities because they get an extra little bit of funding for 'diversity' before it killed all that liberal inclusive equality stuff I believed in college and growing up. White privilege is actually only RICH white privilege, the rest of us are punished for something we dont really have, and I think its really changing our culture.

    No it's natural. Reading too many comics, X-Men or otherwise.

    Your lack of awareness of white privilege doesn't make it the white whale. It's real just because you lack an awareness of it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. It can be traced back to the 3/5'ths compromise in our constitution and has been part of the fabric of our country to this day. Just look at this most recent election and examine how many white folks felt when Mitt lost. That doesn't mean that there isn't a better way to get white men to not just be aware of their privilege and how to deconstruct it than by calling most of you, if not all of you racist.
