This is such a pathetic opinion. There's not enough Blacks/Latinos/Women/WHATEVER writing comics. But there's always this attitude "I'm a minority and i'm not writing comics, so I'll bitch about my race/gender"

Here's a thing. What does the writer want? Eric Wallace parachuted onto Avengers? Black writers given books they don't deserve? Writers have to earn their shot. Maybe if Wallace hadn't tanked Mister Terrific and Titans.

This is both true and untrue. They don't read comics except in prison.

We could bestow you with honorary black poster status since or numbers are dwindling.

If you're going to be whiny anyway, might as well be a part of the whiny majority.

Are you saying that black people are whiny?

I think every minority is whiny about something.

Then I see why everyone here thinks you're an idiot and doesn't take you seriously.

Try being a racial minority. Just paint your face black for a day and tweet about it.

I apologise. It definitely came out wrong. I'll reiterate my initial point: It's an easy stick to beat comics with - "There's no black writers at the Big Two". What I'm curious isn't the "Why", its "Why Not". Writers - of ANY colour, shouldnt have work handed to them, and instead should earn it

No prob. I agree that minorities shouldn't be handed things because they are minorities.
