No, really, it has nothing to do with race.
Source: MURPHY SHARES FIRST LOOK AT "DETECTIVE COMICS'" BLACK ROBIN
Comic Book Resources reported on a tweet sent out by Detective Comics #27 artist, (and friend of the site) Sean Murphy that, seemingly, showcased a new, black, Robin.
Now, I’m not a racist, but there is no way anyone will accept an African American Robin because…
No, wait, let me start over
Not to come off as racist, but a black Robin will never succeed because…
It’s not because sidekicks can’t be black, just look at….um, well….
Much like it is perfectly reasonable for an Asian to hang out with a bunch of Asgardians with no explanation but Heimdall shouldn’t have been black, my arguments against a black robin has nothing to do with him being black…
That’s the worst one yet!
Fuck, there really is no way to argue that Robin can’t be black without sounding like a complete tool, is there?
Detective Comics #27 is an oversized anniversary issue that beings the next Bat crossover, Gothtopia, and it is where you can find the first appearance of this new Robin…who happens to be black.
