Oh please, don't these people have shit better to do instead of worrying about race? If you're going to boycott something, it should be of actual relevance.

nothing new nor is nothing ever going to change i remember the freak out when the justice league cartoon that had an black green Lateran. to be fair I would rather have, the African American counterpart "John Stewart"to the original green Lateran that was already out years early.

Racist pigs just need to accept it. I don't see the problem, the only difference is skin color.

ok, reading all of that made me want to punch somebody. I don't really read comic books or even keep up with them but the argument that a superhero in a country with multiple ethnicities has to be white and not Muslim makes me facepalm out of the sheer idiocy of it all.

Things will never change.
Every human is different and always will be. There is hate in every race sadly.
Vocal racists should be ignored... racists that take things physical should be thrown in jail.

Not much more you can do unless you want to drop down to their level

Considering Muslims come in all skin colors, how can this be considered 'racist”? Would not Islamophobic be more accurate? I read the article you linked to, and found the character of Nightrunner to be rather interesting. I just hope he and his actions won't be defined only by the fact that he is a Muslim, the same way that I would find it boring and easy to define any other superhero by their religion only. DC comics is perhaps using Islam in this case since it's the one faith with so much controversy.

Some people consider Muslims and Jews as a race. I prefer not to because then we might as well consider Christians and Buddists as a race. I like to go by textbook, I consider those terms by religion not by race sorry if this offends anyone. If a survey asked "What ethnicity are you", you don't normally put in "Muslim/Jew". It's usually just Asian/Caucausian/African/etc. The term we were looking for in general is Anti-Semitism.

Quoting From Article: "...in this age of international Muslim terrorism assaulting the whole world, Batman's readers will be confused by what is really going on in the world. Through it all DC makes a Muslim in France a hero when French Muslims are at the center of some of the worst violence in the country's recent memory."

Screw that. So apparently what they are claiming is that people reading comic books are so stupid that they don't understand current events?

All that matters is whether you are a good person inside or not. The only difference between them and the terrorists they bitch about is that some if not most of the terrorists got to act on their prejudice. Heck, in elementry school all my friends were Islamic and I'm East Asian! Honestly, they're people with no lives complaining about silly comics. If they are going to complain about terrorists, they might as well contribute to protecting people from terrorism and get rid of their bigotry. Or get a job. A hooker. Anything. Whatever it is, it's probably bound to be more productive and a less of a pain in the ass for the rest of us.

That is so messed up. Speaking of bigots there are bigots on this board it's funny they're able to actually keep their mouths shuts except when they say "I'm not a racist but" you're still a bigot dummy
