It still hurts my heart that we never got Caesar. That Aaron McGruder failed to take him from the Comic strip to the Show that was such an important part of the Adult Swim lineup.

I was thinking about Caesar and thought about 5 different situations from the comic strips that could have been adapted to terrific episodes of the show.

"For those of you that don’t know much about Amanda Waller from DC Comics, the woman who Shoryuken / Dragon uppercuts the glass ceiling with how hard she goes in the paint. Let me give you the run down right quick. This is a woman that runs a squad of villains doing suicide missions in order to get time off for their sentences or pardons (rarely happens), the way she gets shit done with politics, through politics or by passing politics all together would make Theodore Roosevelt get her name tattooed across the belly while shouting out, “Yaasss, Amanda! Yaaasssss”. Waller takes the big stick ideology breaks it over here knee and says, “Let me show you how we goin’ do this”. She ain’t taken shit from anyone, Batman included…."

- omarholmon on Amanda Waller DA GAWD and why he’s hyped that Voila Davis is set to be casted as her in the upcoming Suicide Squad film.

You know why POC talk about seeing a Black Superman and Earth 2’s Black Superman doesn’t satisfy the appetite? Because it’s fucking Earth 2. Because it is, by design, the B squad as far as how it factors into the mythology (B is generous, I would argue that many more people are invested in the alternate reality of Injustice: Gods Among Us than they are in Earth 2).

Just a few thoughts of mine that I tweeted after leaving the theatre after watching X-Men: Days of Future Pasts….a few typos here and there so forgive me. If we understand mutants to metaphors for marginalized peoples such as persecuted people of color or members of the LGBTA community then it’s ONLY logical to see sentinels as tools, weapons used to hurt, kill and obliterate these said marginalized groups peoples.

Sentinels will always grab my attention, always. Because if you think about it…there’s a ton of “real life sentinels” targeting people now whether or not people see them and acknowledge them as such.

So please don’t tell me comic books are “just for kids”. Don’t tell me comic books don’t contribute to social commentary and/or that they don’t have any significance, just don’t.

blacknerdproblems:

" Even as a fictional character, Storm is a feminist symbol for Black Women the way that most assume Wonder Woman has been for women all these years. Storm has always been powerful, goddess-like and African. And no, not Charlize Theron, South African. Her dark complexion has always been part of her appearance and it’s not by accident. The same way it isn’t an accident that Storm has become a beacon and symbol for women with darker skin for decades now. The unwillingness to recognize that is just another thunderbolt in the side of a demographic of women who frankly, are plenty used to it by now. Still not understanding the public contempt for this casting choice? Ok…"

- williamevanswrites in his newest written piece on Bryan Singer casting actress Alexandra Shipp as a young Storm for the upcoming the X-Men: Apocalypse film, titled "For Dark Skinned Girls Who Never Get Asked To Play Storm"

”..But a real Black Nerd Problem is not knowing if your cosplay will get you killed. Or if a phaser equals wallet equals 41 empty shell casings later.”   -William Evans, ( williamevanswrites here on tumblr), writer of  ”The Sobering Reality of Actual Black Nerd Problems”, a beautiful and NECESSARY written piece on the realities Black folk with nerdy interests face in today’s world.
