Not the worst cover I've seen. If anyone remembers that goblin knockoff Menace pregnant in goblin form in AMS a few years ago, you'll know what I'm talking about.

Y'know, until you guys posted this and I read some of the comments, I didn't associate anything remotely racial about this.
Regardless, this is one of my favorite Deadpool variants.

I guess I was just taught different, growing up with black friends and classmates, because I have to agree with dairy here; I really think it's a stretch to see racism in this. I guess I just don't see stereotypes like that without having them pointed out to me. Or, I could just be really stupid.

Being a football fan I saw a group of athletic looking black people near a banana and immediately assumed some Italian fans had thrown it at them, so I can see where the criticism came from.

Hmmmm!! :smt017

Banana a racist term?

According to an episode of American Dad it is.

Francine is a reverse banana do to being raised by Chinese parents. She's yellow on the inside but white on the outside according to her mom.
So... Banana is like the Oreo term. White on the inside but yellow on the inside.

If you throw bananas at black people to be racist, what fruits do you throw at the other groups?

What about vegetables? What are the official racist fruit of each group if some don't have any, is this racist discrimination against them?

Bananas are racist because monkeys famously eat them and calling black people (or, historically, other groups too) monkeys is a common racist theme. Damn, people.

They're always throwing Bananas at Black players in Football, esp when they're taking a throw-in or corner. :smt013 :smt013

They (meaning some 'fans') then make Monkey noises whilst doing it . Hence the whole 'Kick Racism out of Football' slogan we have going on. 8)
