"Clearly you don't feel the same. I get it."We were not talking about more or less evil. We were talking about intent. Being aware of a risk and choosing to ignore it due to arrogance does not mean you did not intend to do something. I go to rob a bank with a loaded weapon and a bank teller gets murdered then that is still first degree murder even though I thought I could pull off the robbery without anyone getting hurt. The Hellfire Club and Emma intended to cause the X-men harm. Instead that harm was visited about the Brocoli people. They are damned either way because their intent was malicious to begin with. And Cyke and Emma's union is hard to believe because it goes against damn near any normal human response. To pretend like being apologetic or remorseful is akin to self flagellation suggests you have divorced yourself from normal human emotion. Being apologetic or remorseful when you commit an evil fucking act is called being a decent human being.
So yeah, going round in circles. I'll give you the last word. Have a blast

Of course, none of this was ever the point. It was not about shoehorning people poor lad/lass. We are on a comic book message forum and I made a joke about my sisters dating white boys. It was a joke and as I thought ZNOP pointed out quite clearly with his question about how to describe Monet, when one is quickly describing a group of people with dark skin like for example when making a joke, black is the most obvious way to describe them Monet included. I just found it amusing that you assumed you knew things I didn't in deciding to take a joke and go on a soapbox about dark skinned people not identifying with black so decided to join you down in the rabbit hole.
Now of course, if you want we can discuss the history of race further as I sure would love to get some use out of my old thesis on the matter as being mixed, it was a topic that always fascinated me or you can accept that when one sees someone with dark skin in a comic book, they are going to call them black and there really is no need to try and get into the complicated issue of race and identity on a comic book message forum in response to a joke no less and do so by presuming you know the background and experiences of the person with whom you are debating with because sadly you don't.

It's hard for me to listen to people not in my position. A caterpillar can't relate to what an eagle envisions.
