Batman’s observation of Superman (Superman on Batman x)
“If Clark wanted to, he could use his superspeed and squish me into the cement. But I know how he thinks. Even more than the Kryptonite, he’s got one big weakness. Deep down, Clark’s essentially a good person… and deep down, I’m not.” - Batman: Hush (2003)
HUSH is originally from the UK, but worked in Japan for several years as a toy designer enabling him to draw upon Japanese culture as an outsider with an objective eye. Considered one of the most technically gifted urban artists, Hush’s contemporary paintings, limited edition prints, street art & murals explore themes of sexuality & pornography, contrasting the representation of women in traditional & modern eras. | Previously on XC More Hush: Facebook |
these “ok yeah racists are bad but not liking [x character of color/x ship involving a character of color] doesn’t mean you’re racist, don’t let ppl make you think you are!” comments are so painfully ridiculous and unnecessary. literally all they’re doing is serving as validation for racist white fans.
you not thinking you’re racist doesn’t make you not racist. and when racist folks see stuff like this, it just furthers backs up their belief that because they don’t THINK they’re racist (usually because they believe racism is limited to being part of the kkk and spouting racial slurs & don’t understand microaggressions and casual racism), they can’t possibly be.
white fans cannot be doing this. you can’t be encouraging them to do this. they need to sit down and really investigate themselves, because there could be layers and layers of issues to unpack. white fandom, your default response to being called racist shouldn’t be “how dare you, i’m not a racist!” it should be “i am not aware that what i’m doing could be racist, i’m going to go really think about it and address any internalized issues that might be impacting my likes and dislikes.”
You know this fight, you know the horror of seeing this thing’s hp not lowering to your almighty late game Isaac attacks. I was a beta tester of afterbirth for a while and it was kinda worst, I thought the boss was broken, then I remember what was I playing.
