I just finished rereading The Truth: Red, White & Black
I remember when this book was first solicited, I only recently begun making my first forays into comic fandom. I’ll never forget the vitriol people typed up online about the mere concept of this book, that before Steve Rogers became Captain America a black man wore his uniform. Seeing that nonsense alone made me determined to read every issue.
The story relies very heavily on alluding to real history, relying on readers to understand that the United States government, at one point in time, had absolutely no problem experimenting on black people (as well as forcibly sterilizing them.)
And that’s a history that’s problematic, and its one that people still don’t want to deal with (especially right now, with North Carolina refusing to give reparations to sterilization victims) but it’s one that we need to be made to remember.
The comic also speaks to the whitewashing of the United States’ historical narrative, which is what makes this page so important to me.
Isaiah Bradley is every black serviceman who wasn’t rewarded or thanked by his country for his service. Isaiah Bradley is every Civil Rights worker whose name we’ll never learn in favor of the polarizing MLK/Malcolm X dichotomy. Isaiah Bradley represents everything that we as Americans should strive to come to grips with and understand about our history.
I’m in awe right here. You look at all these photos of Isaiah Bradley with people who were, more or less, a part of history, and yet looking at the Marvel Universe, this figure had been, more or less, forgotten by the establishment heroes, and that, above everything else, is a shame.
Also, I do see the artist of this piece in a photo (hint: not Stan Lee).
Agreed. There’s something very significant about the fact this page didn’t blend reality with fiction - that there are no pictures of Isaiah with Storm, Black Panther, The Falcon, Luke Cage or Monica Rambeau (who I would’ve rather seen than fucking Bono, but that’s another point)
Even though this comic is a fictional narrative, it’s a fictional narrative asking us to question the narratives we consider to be the “truth” about ourselves and our nation.
Reblogging this just to say RIP to Mr. Robert Morales
people who still expect asoiaf characters to have happy stories (◡‿◡✿)

It wasn’t perfect in the 60s when Ricardo Montalban was cast to play Khan (a character explicitly described in the episode script of Space Seed as being Sikh, from the Northern regions of India). But considering all of the barriers to representation that Roddenberry faced from the television networks, having a brown-skinned man play a brown character was a hard-won victory. It’s disappointing and demoralizing that with the commercial power of Star Trek in his hands, JJ Abrams chose not to honour the original spirit of the show, or the symbolic heft of the Khan character, but to wield the whitewash brush for … what? […] It’s doubly disappointing when you consider that Abrams was a creator of the television show Lost, which had so many well-rounded and beloved characters of colour in it.
Add to this the secrecy prior to release around Cumberbatch’s role in the film, and what seems like a casting move that would typically be defended by cries of “best actor for the job, not racism” becomes something more cunning, more malicious. Yes, the obfuscation creates intrigue around and interest in the role, but it also prevents advocacy groups like Racebending.com from building campaigns to protest the whitewashing. This happened with the character of the Mandarin in Iron Man 3, as well as ‘Miranda Tate’ in The Dark Knight Rises, who ended up being Talia al Ghul but played by French actress Marion Cotillard. This practice is well in effect in Hollywood; and after the negative press that was generated by angry anti-oppression activists and fans when Paramount had The Last Airbender in the works, studios are wising up. They don’t want their racist practices to be called out, pointed at, and exposed before their movies are released — Airbender proved that these protests create enough bad feeling to affect their bottom line.
#Scandal, S02E21: Shonda, Who Was the Guy?
Scandal is a controversial show, which means sometimes we have to make controversial remarks. Now is one of those times. And this is what we wanna know…
Who was the guy that broke Shonda’s heart in her real life past, that she’s taking it out on the fictional character, Harrison? Seriously, this show emasculates poor Harrison at every possible turn. When he tried to help out Liv, she shut him down with no explanation. She could have at least “Thanked” him for the loyalty.
You know, after 28 episodes, Harrison deserves better. And must he be portrayed as the “angry guy with little self-control”? SMDH. We don’t know how well this will go over with our fellow Gladiators, but we had to speak our peace.
Can one be friend zoned professionally?
★ Who is your favourite villain?
Sansa is musing about her wedding. She asks Shae if she can invite her family to her Highgarden ceremony. Her family? Has Sansa been smoking Milk of the Poppy? Sure Sansa, invite your family so that Joffrey can arrange to have each of them killed as they walk through the door. Turn a wedding into a bloodbath, why don’t you.
Yooooooooooo #Scandal was something serious tonight lol
