I'm not even sure where he even got the idea that Miles was going to be portrayed as gay? I have not even heard of a single such report. No one deserves that kind of hate and ignorance. I see nothing wrong with Comics characters that look like the people who read them. I wonder how people like generate enough brain power to keep their autonomic nervous system working. If that isn't proof of God's mercy and power, it's hard to point to a better example.
Fortunately, Beck's stupidity isn't being ignored. Stephen Colbert mocks such "news" coverages:
And then there was this awesome mashup.
To make this even more stranger is that Michael Davis who is African-American has been approached to develop television for the 11-16 age demographic for...Beck TV! Does Davis have the track record, experience, and talent to pull that job off. Yup! But he will not sell out on his principles. Davis writes the following:
IS YOU STUPID??I love to see someone standing up for what they believe in. Someone has to draw the line somewhere. I don't really think that Beck is that stupid, but the people who are in charge of Beck TV is. Looks like someone wants to be Oprah while lambasting Barack Obama and Marvel Comics.
Now if I were a sell out Negro, I’m sure I could create some shows for Massa Beck that I’m sure he would love…
How about, Nigger-Man? It’s an animated show about a Black superhero on welfare.
Or…The Nigger Family, that’s show about a black family on welfare.
Perhaps, Name that African American would make a good show. It’s an educational game show where the kids get to name the black person.
They name them all, nigger.
I’m fully aware that there is a good chance that the company that asked me to create something for Glen Beck may see this.
So be it. If it destroys my relationship there I could care less. If by some miracle Beck sees this and wonders why I just didn’t take the money and ignore everything else I say this,
I’m not that nigger.
