Dick Grayson is Rromani. Making him into a genocidal fascist is not only an insult to his character but to the Rroma. This is in no way acceptable. It is antiziganist and incredibly disrespectful on so many levels.
He is one of, if not the most, iconic Rromani characters and him being made a fascist follows the decision by marvel to have Wanda Maximoff, a rromani woman, join hydra, a nazi organization. These are blatantly antiziganist and follow a dangerous trend in recent media that threatens the safety of minorities. We are being demonized and being made to be the perpetrators of fascism, of genocide, of Nazism. I have had enough and it is time the creators knew this. Fascism is not a joke, a simple plot device. It is what leads to genocide. To the deaths of millions and it is not to be taken lightly. These stories, arcs, whatever you want to call them, are normalizing fascism. This is incredibly dangerous and dc and marvel need to hear this message.
if you are gadje please reblog this. The Rroma will not stand for this. Neither should you.
Please everyone, y'all need to go see Wonder Woman on June 2nd! It’s so unbelievably important for this movie to have a big opening weekend, it will effect almost every female led action movie coming forward. Take you friends, take your families, tell other people with kids. Female action movies outside of Star Wars and Hunger Games historically haven’t done very well, we need to make sure that Wonder Woman is huge so more female led superhero movies get green lit.
