Valdosta specialty store seems to go by identity politics

The Valdosta Daily Times interviewed the manager of Kool Comics, which has been working in Lowndes County for 2 decades, and wouldn't you know it, they seem to bring up identity politics elements:
It is the Kool Comics experience.

This experience also led him to be featured in the “Access Guide to Black Comic Book Community 2020-2021.”

It is a sourcebook for new and veteran comic book readers who want to know more about Black comic book creators, the stories they produce, publishers, stores and conventions “that provide kinship, safe spaces and promote an imaginative variety of experience through comic books,” according to its description.
This is the kind of propaganda that can be found, selectively or otherwise, at only so many leftist dominated universities today. What are they promoting at the specialty store, exactly? Insularity? Which only puts a lie to the whole propaganda of "inclusivity". And as if that weren't fishy enough, there's also leftist politics brought into the mix:
This wasn’t the only place Oliver was spotlighted for his hard work and leadership abilities. These traits led to a referral to run — and subsequent campaign— for the position of state representative for the 170th District of Georgia in 2020 in the Democrat Party.

Oliver said people in general shouldn’t seek power, but an opportunity sought him out. It wasn’t a moment where he woke up and suddenly decided to run.

He said he often considered finishing his career and part of his life as a politician but it still took a few months prior to qualifying before deciding to forge a campaign trail.

“I just wanted to get out there, represent the community and put my best foot forward,” Oliver said. “Hopefully (I’d) inspire some other people to step up and try to serve their community.”
Well kudos to the guy for wishing to discourage some from wasting their time in politics, but that he went along with it himself nevertheless, and all through the auspices of the Democrats, is cause for dismay. If the comics store in focus is building their business according to political motivations, it's a very poor direction to choose, and comes off more divisive than uniting. Which, now that I think of it, has been precisely the problem for over 2 decades now, ever since September 11, 2001, when there's far-leftists doing more to divide than unite. Such thinking, when it seeps into entertainment store management, only makes everything worse.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
