I'm Monica. This is a comics blog.
The poets down here don't write nothing at all
I don’t want to go so far as to say that only a white writer would think to have Sam Wilson become Captain America, because that’s not the case. I do, however, think that only a writer who isn’t trying hard enough would come up with that already-been-done story. More important, I think only a writer caught up in existing racial ideologies would think it is a good idea that a black man assumes the identity of a white man, as if that is the pinnacle of identity.

Let me be clear, so there is no misunderstanding, any writer working in comics could have come up with the idea of Falcon taking over for Captain America. It is a no-brainer. What is troubling to me—and is something that I’ve talked about before—is that in his forty-plus year history, Falcon has no truly defining story. Even the best Falcon stories are either mediocre or forgettable, and now, after all this time, the character gets to do something memorable by taking over the job of a white guy. This is the real reason why Marvel’s Diversity & Representation 2014 initiative is such a joke. It is all superficial (not to mention temporary), and it only perpetuates the notion that in order for people of color and women to achieve greatness, they must literally fill the shoes of a white man. Gimme a break.

i hate whenever you suggest a poc actor for a mcu role and all these comic book assholes crawl out of the woodwork and raise a finger going “eeehhh excuse me but doctor strange / janet van dyne / etc etc etc was white in the comics, soooooo” like thank u im so glad u have pointed out that comics written 50 years ago by racist white people didnt have any diversity in them i mean gosh thats really relevant to a movie casting decision in 2014

THEY REALLY ARE A TAUTOLOGY OMFG.

if you’re not familiar with deductive logic, here’s a crash course:

statements have two truth values: true or false. by connecting statements with logical operators, you can determine the truth value of a compound statement like kate’s rather complex train of thought up there. every operator has a mathematical function and you solve it like an equation. when all truth values beneath the main operator are true, the compound statement is considered a tautology. kate did all of that in her head.

if you don’t love kate bishop, i really don’t know what you’re doing with your life.

Bwah. You’re out of luck, I have a rotating wallpaper of landscapes.

But I recently put this up at work, so I’ll give you that:

One coworker asked if she was family. Yes, I always put hot chicks I’m related to as my wallpaper. I’m a Lannister, after all. (I was looking for an America Chavez one, but couldn’t for the life of me find one.)
