A.) I always felt Donald Glover would be an awesome Flash
B.) Still want to see #sixseasonsandamovie
C.) Also want to see the Flash given a full season
D.) I don't give a flying rat's ass that Wally West is bi-racial now. All the racist people need to calm down.
I might be the wrong person to be preaching to.. I'm of the opinion more classic characters should be diversified to be more representative of America. If you give me an Asian Superman and an African American Batman, then you can make Black Lightning white for all I care.
“So you're saying an African American can't say the things Wally said pre-52?”
Apparently he can’t, as he must be angry vandal that get arrested, or at least that’s what the comics suggest.
You see appearance is a factor, especially when it’s in bad taste. It wasn’t the artists idea and they handled it horribly. It looks like they used some kind of stock angry black kid design, and the change just magnifies just how different this new Wally character is.
So I’m firmly opposed to forcing a race change to a long established characters just to add diversity, you need the artists to have passion for the change and love the character. I would also have rather seen Static, African American and his own original hero, which makes him even more awesome.
Though your comment does raise an interesting point. When they do do a race lift of a character, they do tend to make them african-american, instead of paying attention to other underrepresented subgroups like asians, hispanics, or native americans. What do you make of that?
