Diversity tactics still prevail in the pages of the Flash

While everyone's attention was focused mainly on Marvel's SJW diversity-pandering at the expense of established characters, DC used that fuss as a cover for their own, as seen in some pages from the 34th issue of the current Flash volume:
They first came up with this laughable variation on the retcon to Jason Todd (whose own background was changed to a delinquent's in 1987) about 4 years ago as part of the New 52, and apparently, they haven't let it go, because pandering to social justice, no matter how absurdly stereotypical the rendition is, matters so much more to them. Interestingly, even a writer for Bleeding Cool found the portrayal of Wally West as black offensive, and not just because he was subject to the hoodie cliche, but also because he's apparently a delinquent, and lacks charm/personality, thanks to the untalented writers who brewed up the whole mess. And all because they wanted to reflect what the TV show apparently resorted to.

They may have brought back white Wally, but if the above says something, black Wally is still kept around, as though that's going to do any good. More likely it'll just cost them extra money in their desperate attempt to cater at all costs to the SJW crowd who won't even bother to read the book.

And this has been going on under everyone's noses while almost all attention was focused on Marvel. Can we be clear, that Marvel, no matter how much we like their universe, shouldn't be the only ones to worry are performing SJW-pandering? Why, even the smaller publishers matter. And DC's laughable additions to the diversity tactics cottage industry have been just as damaging to their own output as any other publisher's, done at the expense of established characters. It shouldn't be overlooked.
