And now self-hating person of color explains to me why nobody cares about "ethnicities in comics" , complete with "Why do they have to make Captain America black?" (He's not black)
Me: "Well, they didn't make Captain America Black. They made Steve Rogers Too Old to be Captain America, and Falcon took over the mantel. It's a different character completely, just the same title When Barack Obama took office from George Bush they didn't 'make the president Black', there's just adifferent president."
SHPOC: "Have you read Elektra?"
Me: "No. We have a few subscribers to it but nobody has said anything positive or negative about it to me."
SHPOC: "Well, not to be prejudice but are they all women?"
Me: "No. They're mostly men."
SHPOC: "Sometimes I read girl comics but mostly they're no good."
"I liked Power Girl because the boob window was awesome."
"I kind of want to read Vampirella. She looks hot."
"Ever since Disney took over, they're trying to make everything all women and ethnicities."
"Why is there even a Rocket Raccoon comic. Who wants to read about raccoons?"
OH MY GOD, YOU'RE A SPECIESIST, TOO?!? OF COURSE YOU ARE.
"Are Wednesday's busy here?"
Dude, you have not even paused to let me answer any of your inane, ignorant questions.
Me: "Yes, they're the busiest day of the week for all comic book stores."
SHPOC: "I shop at a small store when I can but some people, you know what they're like."
What in the stale hell are you talking about?
SHPOC: "Justice League Canada? Readers don't care about Canada."
STOP TALKING STOP TALKING STOP TALKING
SHPOC: "Can you give me not change for change?"
SHPOC: "I hate when you're running for the bus and there is change in your pocket and it's all bouncey bouncey bouncey. It's such an annoying sound. You know what I mean?"
YES I HAVE THAT FEELING EVERY TIME YOU OPEN YOUR MOUTH.
SHPOC: "Well, I had fun talking to you." Fuck you. "I have to catch my bus. On my way here there was a woman, and I asked her if the bus was a 77 bus, and she said I should ask the bus driver, and I thought 'I'd hate to be the guy who has to go home to her.'"
So, my Tuesday is not going well. How is yours?
