Zircher's right about this: nobody should apologize for their skin color
No one has to apologize for the color of their skin. Absolutely no one. https://t.co/lQa6XNbEb9— Patch Zircher (@PatrickZircher) October 9, 2015
That does sound different from the time he sided with or whitewashed the Ferguson riots. It could also be considered a response to all the politicized diversity stunts Marvel's been pulling, and even DC's accountable for. The replacement of Steve Rogers with Sam Wilson wasn't necessary, and neither in fact was replacing Thor with Jane Foster. Even DC's diversity-based replacements for Atom, Blue Beetle, and Firestorm weren't necessary, and it's long been clear they didn't work out either. What matters is the script's own merits, and they should know how to create and market characters of difference racial backgrounds as their own agencies.
Plus, white liberal guilt, which is turning up in mainstream comics lately, is something that's got to stop. Who knows, maybe this too is an example of Zircher and Booth waking up to what's wrong with such mentalities.
