Really enjoyed @tanehisicoates Black Panther, and how it's grappling with impossible choices leaders have to make. And Stelfreeze...wow.— Mark Sable (@marksable) April 8, 2016
So if Coates stuffed any of his horrid politics into the new solo book starring T'Challa he's now writing, that's okay with Sable? What a major disappointment. Here's more:
Black Panther is interesting to read alongside @JeffreyGoldberg's piece on Obama's foreign policy decision making https://t.co/spD8BqUtek— Mark Sable (@marksable) April 8, 2016
Whether you like Obama or not it's fascinating to read how he thinks through problems, and the constraints he faces— Mark Sable (@marksable) April 8, 2016
Also, if @tanehisicoates The Case for Reparations and The Black Family in The Age of Incarceration are @TheAtlantic must reads— Mark Sable (@marksable) April 8, 2016
What problems has he ever thought through? He didn't handle the Benghazi case any better than Hilary Clinton did, and has otherwise been weak in dealing with jihadism. Many of the victims at Ford Hood had to fight to get their compensation and purple hearts, and Obama did nothing convincing to help them at the time. And what about the dangers posed by "refugees" from Islamic countries who stick with the Religion of Peace even in another land? How is Obama thinking through problems if no consideration is given on that subject? Has he even been bold on the topic of Armenia's holocaust? As for Coates' writings in the Atlantic, they're mostly garbage.
If you don't care about any of that stuff, Black Panther is also just a fun read. Again...Stelfreeze— Mark Sable (@marksable) April 8, 2016
I'll stick with the older books written by folks who had far better, more tasteful approaches in mind, like Stan Lee.
This week's new #comics. Looking forward to reading #starwars comics from @jamesdrobinson… https://t.co/arE9aXcm2H— Mark Sable (@marksable) April 13, 2016
Not me. I've long re-evaluated Robinson's writing, and decided he has no genuine respect for DC or Marvel.
I'm so excited for the discussion the Will Eisner thing will inspire of whether Jewish = white. Will not bring out any hatred at all.— Mark Sable (@marksable) April 18, 2016
Don't worry, that's the least bothersome of anything Sable's written of recent. Let me say that as far as Jewish = white is concerned, the simple answer is "yes". And I was quite put off when I found a guy writing in the press making it sound like the Jewish race isn't. I do wonder though what Sable thinks of Eisner's last GN, The Plot, because that dealt with Islamic anti-semitism, and Eisner's opposition to communism hints his politics were far from coinciding with Sable's.
