So I have been checking up discussions from last year about Santa Claus being Black and how much of an unnecessary controversy it caused and it got me thinking, does the public even know if Batman was white or do people just assume he is? cuz lets be real, the man is covered from head to toe and only appear at nights, that’s not enough to know someone ethnicity so what if every kid in Gotham believe that Batman is the same race as them and will not allow someone to tell them otherwise?
White kid: But why do you think Batman is black?!
Black kid: Why do you think he isn’t?
White kid: Why? have you see his chin skin? its white so how can he be black?
Black kid:Heelloo, black people with vitiligo exist so….
White kid: Bu- thats-….that’s just an unlikely to thing to be. Thats all.
Korean kid: Well if you’re so hang up on skin color then Batman might be Korean? we have fair skin too.
White kid: What?? how can he be Korean if he doesn’t have Asian eyes??
Korean kid: Ah, well not all of us have “Asian Eyes” and even if we do, Batman has his mask on him at all time, so how do you know he doesn’t have “asian eyes” under there?
White kid: Because I’m being logical and going by facts unlike you.
Arab kid: Well if you really wanna be “logical” wouldn’t it make the most sense if Batman was middle-eastern?
White kid: And how does THAT make any sense?!?
Arab kid: Well I mean the current Robin is obviously Arab and unlike all the other Robins he refer to Batman as “father” which would mean Batman is his father so it would make sense if Batman too was the same ethnicity as his son.
White kid: Okay all of you really need to stop attacking me right now because Batman is white just like Jesus is >:(
Arab kid: Oh boy if you think Jesus was white then I got some news for you…
