Would they admit that about today's liberal writers?
That moment can be read as a tacit admission that the white liberal creators of this new character are drawing from a reality they know nothing about. The text caption at the end of “Beware My Power”—almost certainly titled that way to reference the phrase “Black Power”—says, “Where or when, no man can say… but rest assured—John (Green Lantern) Stewart will return.” The uncertainty in that caption probably indicates that the powers-that-be were waiting for feedback on the new GL, but it also betrays a little bit of doubt, too, as to whether DC could pull this off.Now isn't that funny coming from a website that's more or less liberal themselves, and doubtless run by...white liberals! One can only wonder if they'd admit today's white liberal writers are far more screwed up, and can be even more incompetent with racial issues than those from the past. Aren't they equally capable of drawing from realities they don't know much about, if at all? Brian Bendis is a white liberal, and not only has he taken part in replacing some of the white protagonists in the MCU for the sake of contrived diversity pandering, there's no telling if he understands these realities either. And if he doesn't, shouldn't that also be a topic of discussion?
Of course white libs in the past may not have known everything about racial topics. But then, that's why we have to realize that modern libs of any background can be just as awkward, if not more so.
