Really funny how people making fun of immigrants speaking “broken english” only know one fucking language.

Reasons why I’m excited for “Dear White People:”

  • Black actors portraying 3-dimensional characters
  • Honest social commentary
  • Targeted to the college age demographic
  • Thorough exploration of the various forms of racism in America
  • Tessa Thompson’s voice and Tyler William’s afro wig

Reasons why I’m not excited for “Dear White People:”

  • White people calling it racist
  • Mainstream media agreeing with the white people calling it racist

A Letter To The Maestro
Dear Mr. McDuffie,
It’s been three years since you made your transition to the cosmos and 52 years since you arrived. A lot of people are going to be talking about you this week. Some who worked alongside you. Some who you’ve called friend. One you’ve called wife. Some that put you down. And others who try to co-opt and usurp your legacy.
Trust me, sir, you have a strong legacy. 
Your live on in the characters and universes that you’ve put your mark on and those “kids” you brought to life across comic pages and the TV screen. You live on in the fans that were entertained by your works and now a younger generation who is just learning your name. You live on in the creators, both those who were your peers and those you’ve inspired to enter the industry you poured your heart out on, even though on too many occasions, you got crushed. 
Sad to say the industry hasn’t changed too much since you’ve been gone. Too many voices are still being silenced. There’s still not a lot of diversity in the mainstream comics, both on the talent side and the characters in those four-color worlds. Sure, there are a few guys doing great covers now and then, but I wonder why they’re not actually doing interiors. It’s like we’re good enough to sell the book to those who judge a book by its cover but not good enough to fill the sheets. And even when folks that look like us are in the pages, others question why we’re there. They ask if they’re fitting a quota, being “politically correct,” and other such bigoted nonsense, but this isn’t something you haven’t heard while you were here. 
But dammit if those who are still trying to live up to your ideal aren’t trying. I wonder what you’d make of the modern wave of indie creators. I wonder what you’d think of a lot of things to be honest. I know a lot of things, but compared to you, I’m just a novice student. Your insight and advice are sorely missed because you always seemed to know the right thing to say, the right piece of advice for those in need, and a great bit of wit to enlighten the day even at its darkest. 
You’re still the ideal, sir, and we’re still chasing your ghost. There will never be another cat like you for us. Oh, there will be folks trying to fill your shoes throughout the years, but they’re still too big to fill. Seriously, you were a big dude! But you left a great mark on all of us you inspired, and there are so many ways to thank you, sir. We still dream, and we still create.
And we still miss you.
Thank you,
Jeff Harris

That’s not just a cosplay Cat Woman, that’s a hero. On Saturday July 26 at Comic-Con Alicia Marie was cosplaying as Tigra with her geek+model friends. A creep publicly reached into her bikini bottom and de-pantsed her. He would have gotten away unscathed if not for ANTM winner Adrianne Curry. Dressed as Cat Woman, Adrianne chased down and clocked him with the butt of her bull whip. Hopefully some folks got photos of his bloody face, this guy deserves some JAIL TIME.

"Right now, I am just thankful and happy I have friends that don’t even have to put a costume on to be superheroes.   AM”

Alicia’s much longer original Facebook post here. More thoughts on cosplay and harassment here from the Comics Beat’s Heidi Macdonald. Adrianne Curry can’t be everywhere, con organizers and attendees all need to do more. We need to do more.

You’re going to hear and read a lot about Dwayne McDuffie in the next couple of days. Today, February 20, would have been his 51st birthday, and tomorrow, February 21, marks two years since he ascended towards the stars and the griots who came before him. 
I miss the cat, and comics needs a guy like him today. Animation needs a guy like him today. We all need a guy like him today. 
A creator. A genius. A dreamer. 
An icon. An ideal. An inspiration
A collaborator. A colleague. An intellect.
A friend. A son. A husband.
The Maestro. Mr. McDuffie.
I’d say a lot more, but I’m afraid I’d be repeating what I wrote here, here, and here.
So, I’ll just say happy birthday, Mr. McDuffie, and we still miss you.
