More DC Race Fail

Dave Brothers Beat Me To This One

More of Ian Sattler at the the Heroes Con DC Nation panel.

"A serious topic came up about how characters who are minorities who happened to be legacy characters like Ryan Choi are killed off so their caucasian counterparts can return and how they feel like they are being cheated or sidelined out of their roles. Sattler took a more serious tone. "It's so hard for me to be on the other side because it's not our intention. There is a reason behind it all. We don't see it that way and strive very hard to have a diverse DCU. I mean, we have green, pink, and blue characters. We have the Great Ten out there and I have counter statistics, but I won't get into that. It's not how we perceived it. We get the same thing about how we treat our female characters."

Yes, Mr Sattler, you're colorblind. We know. That's precisely the problem.

Also, someone on that blog said "he’s just pointing out they don’t automatically make everyone white."

But if Brainy or whoever is turned human, they're always turned white. Even the greens and blues, etc, are white on the inside, I guess.

I get the feeling Ian Sattler was hired to deflect some ire from Didio, and for no other reason.

You know, before you go into a discussion on race, DC people, perhaps it would be a good idea to look up the idea of "coded white"? It is just a teeny bit important. While you're at it, look up the concept of diversity. Believe it or not, there are not many pink people who are very pleased at having a pink-skinned hero to look up to.

God. The stupidity and ignorance burns.

I never really got the impact of those panels though. GL didn't stick around and help the aliens with their social problems (except for removing a few murderous dictators here or there) he just saves their lives. Unles he's only been shielding white people from falling debris and deflecting falling meteors into black neighborhoods, he's done just as much for black humans as he's done for any aliens or other humans.

So, never minding the "minority conflation fallacy" or the fact that he seems to think that being accused of sexism counts as a counter point to accusations of racism (or whatever, I'm really having a hard time making sense of that one)...

The fact that he seems to be implying that having representation for extra terrestrials in his stories counts as racial diversity is just confusing beyond belief. I mean, what, does he think these works are non-fiction or something? That green-martians and the guardians of the universe and whatnot are all real? Is there something I don't know here?
