The Green Lantern: In 2011, Why Isn’t He Black?

In 2011, DWLs demand to know why The Green Lantern isn't black

California

This is a story straight out of Hollywood in Blackface.

Something like this could only happen in Black Run America where the USDA wages war against “heterosexism” and sustains 39 percent of African-Americans in Michigan with EBT cards.

The Green Lantern, which is a new Hollywood movie based on the 1940s comic book, is receiving some withering criticism by DWLs at The Christian Science Monitor who are objecting to the film because the superhero is a White male.

The movie is being denounced as “a white male power fantasy.” It is said to be “a troubling sign” that Hollywood is now making movies from drawn from an earlier era that featured less “diversity.”

Just listen to this:

“Hollywood often continues to use a white American male as its default lead character and assumes that viewers of all demographics will be able to identify with him,” says Amy Corbin, assistant professor of art and film studies at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Penn.

The white male becomes the “universal” character who is supposedly compelling for everyone – while when women and people of color play the leads, those films are often assumed to be “niche” films that will only attract a viewing demographic that matches the lead character,” she adds via email.

“You’re telling me that in 2011, on a planet of some 7 billion people, the vast majority of whom are minority faces, that the best of the best is going to be a white guy from southern California,” says comic book expert Julian Chambliss, who teaches history at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida.

This sends a troubling message, he says adding “there are many other figures they could have chosen to make a movie about, but this one is appealing much more strongly to the privileging of white, male American power than many others.”

“Before the sixties, comic books were largely aimed at young, white middle-American boys who had the disposable income to spend,” he says, adding, “but that began to change in the ‘60s and ‘70s, and they began adding black and Hispanic and female characters.”

In Black Run America, “anti-racism” is synonymous with being “anti-White.” As an actor, Ryan Reynolds is objectionable solely because he is White, and for no other reason. The relentless promotion of black people takes precedence over every other consideration.

No one here is claiming that Ryan Reynolds is a racist or a member of a “hate group.” On the contrary, DWLs argue that the advancement of “civil rights” in America now requires racial discrimination against Whites as Whites (i.e., racism), and the race conscious portrayal of African-Americans and Hispanics as superheroes.

One might be tempted to reply here: what about Will Smith who played Hancock? What about Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury in Ironman? What about Idris Elba being cast as the Nordic god Heimdall in Thor?

Not good enough.

If we are to “make progress” as a society, every Hollywood movie should be about manufacturing “black fictional images” and sending a politically correct racial message that White is, you know, just not happening in 2011.

In other words, every single movie you watch should be a non-White racial power fantasy about slighting and displacing White America. That is where we are today as a society. And if you call attention to this fact, you are labelled a “racist.”

Something is stirring out there.

White people are giving up on Black Run America. The economy is tanking. The media and federal government have no legitimacy. DWLs and African-Americans interpret “progress” as still more diversity promotion and wealth redistribution.

Like two tectonic plates slipping past each other, this is bound to produce a historical earthquake at some point down the road, as DWLs and African-Americans become more aggressive, and Whites grow more defensive.

Note: The long awaited review of Hollywood in Blackface is coming soon. As often happens, I got distracted by another book. I’m writing a book of my own which will be announced here soon.

Read the Comments. The racial whining swill is no longer “going down” so smoothly. Here’s a pic Chambliss, race-hustler AA “professor” deluxe:

http://www.rollins.edu/news/2009/04/Hannasymposium.html

He’s the big fat Negro, on the far left. How appropo.

Yes, Chambliss – White men are the Best of the Best.

P.S. – Muhlehnberg? I can almost guarantee Corbin’s a Jewess. Muhlenberg has become notorious as a 4 year baby sitter to lazy, snotty, untalented Jewsish kids, who are not rich enough, good enough, or connected enough to get into Yale or Harvard.

“7 billion people, the vast majority of whom are minority faces”

Oh wow, I laughed. They can’t bring themselves to say non-whites because that might be perceived to imply an us-vs-them relationship. The leftists language-bending continues.

While we’re on the topic of diversity in films, why not only have about 10% of actors white? This will be more representative of the world population and will perhaps cause some whites to wake up to the racial realities of today.

Anecdote from Alexandria, Virginia yesterday–I waited in line behind a black woman with a Bluetooth and two girls–the woman used an EBT card to pay for $80 in brand name groceries, and when they got out to the parking lot, loaded up their late-model Land Rover. How the hell is that allowed?!?!

I’m not sure, but in the comic book isn’t he black? As for ‘white America giving up on black run America’ give me a break. It’s just a matter of the comic book character being black but in the movie he is white. Somebody was bound to notice. Stop the spin

If they are the “vast majority”, how then can they be “minorities”?

“7 billion people, the vast majority of whom are minority faces” —If they are the “vast majority”, how then can they be “minorities”?— Exactly. Just a monumentally stupid statement. Speaking of whites as heroic characters, I really love the portrayal of the Starks, and the men of the North in general in Game of Thrones. They are portrayed as noble and heroic. There’s nary a black in the program. Let’s face it, blacks and SWLs (Suicidal White Liberals… Disingenuous really understates their evil) would cast blacks as heroes in European period pieces, so absurd is their lust to rid the… Read more »

Ok if traditionally White characters can be race-bended and played by mystery meats then what about the corollary?

Can I now demand that Shaft be played by a White guy?

Paul Kersey

Hal Jordan was always white. The reason people believe that Green Lantern should be Black is because the cartoon “Justice League” (debuting in 2001) was forced to include a Black character so that it wasn’t only white people saving the world. I’m not making this up. Bruce Timm, one of the creating forces behind the popular “Batman: The Animated Series” was interviewed for the Atlanta Journal Constitution back in 2001 and admitted the whole “make Green Lantern Black” was a pc move. The article isn’t available online, but I was able to acquire it and post in on my site.… Read more »

Whether Jews wrote the traditional comic books long ago might not be relevent today; however, this topic in general is one where the Jewish Question is very relevant. Many of the liberals complaining about White males in the leading roles are actually Jews — who else? In addition, the Jews in Hollywood are responsible for the trend away from using White men in the leading roles in the first place, for casting non-Whites for as White characters and for invariably casting Whites as evil, stupid and baffoonish. The cultural assault against Whites is being led and directed by Jews. It… Read more »

Lew – Considering it’s Hollywood, to not mention Jews is to basically miss much of the story.

When I was a kid, I actually read Green Lantern comics, and they actually did replace him with a black Green Lantern.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Stewart_(comics)

I stopped reading it then. I didn’t really know why. I just didn’t like it anymore.

Maybe that has something to do with why they used Hal Jordan and not John Stewart for the money. They need to make their money back.

Quick question here…
“7 billion people, the vast majority of whom are minority faces”
“7 billion people, the vast majority of whom are Asian faces”, there now its fixed.

Of the 10’s of thousands of green lanterns, only 5 of them are white : 1. Alan Scott 2. Hal Jordan 3. Guy Gardner 4. Kyle Rayner and 5. Jade (Alan Scott’s daughter) John Stewart IS black, but unfortunately for the people who think this is a racist thing, he wasnt the 1st. In order to correctly introduce the movie CORRECTLY, you have to start with the first one introduced to people, Hal Jordan. Thats like having a new James Bond movie staring Wesley Snipes. Unfortunately this isnt said enough but some people need to get there facts straight. P.S.… Read more »

Ok if traditionally White characters can be race-bended and played by mystery meats then what about the corollary? The misapplication here is that the characters themselves are usually still based on White Western archetypes, they are not truly black, Asian, etc, it’s a fraud. Hancock is closer to an accurate portrayal of a black with superhuman powers. P.S. As far as slavery goes, the blacks sold the blacks before the whites did Blacks being sold to Whites was the best thing to ever happen to blacks in the history of their backwards people. Whites should be the ones complaining not… Read more »

I was just trying to find out the answer to a question “Why can’t I find a black superhero? What happened to the Green Lantern?” Never did I think I would find such hate regarding human beings that weren’t “white”. You do realized that 99% of our DNA is the same, right? You do realize that if you peel away the skin, we look the same right? You do realize that to differentiate the way your are is flat despicable, right? This is what I try to teach teenagers, that there are people in the world who believe in and… Read more »

Actually not. Negroes have significantly different skull and bone structures. A medical doctor could tell the difference immediately.

If you think blacks are just like whites try teaching them how to do partial differential equations sometime and see how well that works out for ya’.

Hot subject, good points and here is my view. I am European and sick of Artificial Multicultural Political Correctness wherever it is forced. To me, Hollywood political casting becomes more and more aggravating. In the past I have never been racist per se, now these fillings are objectively changing due to kind of trend within white civilization. Why? because ruling government systems with dubious support from quasi-humanistic individuals tend to enforce Artificial Multiracial and Multicultural societies. In theory, there is nothing wrong with that. In reality, it is a disaster, traceable at every corner. Islam and Black Africa are not… Read more »

Wow, ignorance really does rule on the internet. I don’t believe I’ve seen so much ignorance displayed in one place since the time I attended a convention of the flat earth society.

Also it boggles my mind that people who most loudly proclaim the superiority of whites in all things good, are such poor examples of said superiority themselves.

There are many different types of Green Lantern. The original was Hal Jordan, a white guy. He was replaced by John Stewart, a black guy. Though I did become a bit disappointed when in the trailer, it wasn’t going to by my favorite Green Lantern. Not that I’m being racist, I’ve just known him longer than I did the original.
