Why a Half-Black/Half-Hispanic Spider-Man Makes Sense; Black or Brown People Commit almost all the Crime in New York City!

He’s a Brother! Spider-Man goes Blackface in 2011

In finishing acclaimed comic book writer Grant Morrison’s book Supergods: What Masked Vigilantes, Miraculous Mutants, and a Sun God from Smallville Can Teach Us About Being Human, I realized that those writing for the industries top titles right now – Batman, Superman, X-Men, the Marvel Ultimate line – are all Disingenuous White Liberals (DWLs).

Perhaps those writing in that particular field (outside of guys like Frank Miller and some Garth Ennis work) have always been progressive-types pushing a DWL-driven agenda. In finishing Captain America and Whiteness (available August 8 in paperback; now on Kindle), I realized one interesting story was neglected: the case of Community star Donald Glover trying to win the part of Peter Parker/Spider-man in the 2012 re-boot – already? – of the Spider-man franchise, The Amazing Spider-Man.

Andrew Garfield (a white guy, just like Parker in the comics, television shows and three movies) got the role, but not before Stan Lee (the creator of Spider-Man) could say this about Glover’s – a Black dude – campaign for the role:

He’s a great actor. I’ve seen him, and he’s terrific,” Lee said of Glover. “As far as I’m concerned … anybody should have a chance to audition for the role. I certainly think he should have a chance to audition.

He continued: “Here’s the point: We’ve already had the Kingpin in ‘Daredevil’ portrayed by a black man, where he was white in the comics, [and] we’ve had Nick Fury portrayed by a black man where he was white in the comics,” said Lee. “But not that many people had seen these characters — not that many moviegoers are familiar with them. Everybody seems to be familiar with Spider-Man, so I say that it isn’t that it’s a racial issue — it’s just that it might be confusing to people.

When you read Captain America and Whiteness, you’ll understand that superhero movies are the last realm of white actors starring in badass roles (though they must wear tights and costume) left in Hollywood, an industry that is trying to put a Blackface – see Hollywood in Blackface for more on this – on every new film property.

It should come as no surprise that Marvel – attempting to replicate DC’s move when they made the Green Lantern a Black guy in the 2001 cartoon Justice League so that it wouldn’t be “a bunch of white guys saving the world” – decided to make Spider-Man a half-Black/half-Mexican in the Ultimate Spider-Man comic book. After the death of Peter Parker, a half-Black/half-Hispanic (obviously galvanized by the horrible crime rates in New York from those two communities) becomes the new Spider-Man:

We have an African-American president, so why not an African-American Spider-Man, too?

Revealed in Marvel Comics’ Ultimate Fallout Issue 4, out Wednesday, the new Spider-Man in the Ultimate universe is a half-black, half-Hispanic teen named Miles Morales. He takes over the gig held by Peter Parker, who was killed in Ultimate Spider-Man Issue 160 in June.
In his first appearance, he simply breaks up a fight. But readers will learn the true origin of Morales and how he became the new Spider-Man when Ultimate Spider-Man relaunches in September with a new No. 1 issue.
“The theme is the same: With great power comes great responsibility,” says writer Brian Michael Bendis. “He’s going to learn that. Then he has to figure out what that means.”
The new Ultimate Spider-Man series, as well as Wednesday’s Ultimate Fallout issue, will be available digitally the same day as in stores.
In the regular Marvel Universe, Peter Parker will still be the same web-swinging Spidey as he has been since his first appearance in 1962. But in the Ultimate line, launched in 2000 to tell contemporary stories, he received a new origin and a reimagined supporting cast that paralleled the Spidey in regular Marvel continuity.
Morales’ journey will be a similar vehicle for today’s fans, says Marvel’s editor in chief, Axel Alonso.
“What you have is a Spider-Man for the 21st century who’s reflective of our culture and diversity. We think that readers will fall in love with Miles Morales the same way they fell in love with Peter Parker.”
In addition to an alliterative name, Miles has a connection to his predecessor in how he received his powers. But he will have different abilities, too. Supporting characters such as Peter’s Aunt May and Gwen Stacy also will give Miles nuggets of wisdom to help his transition from young kid to New York City superhero.
Italian artist Sara Pichelli, who was integral in designing the new Spider-Man’s look, says, “Maybe sooner or later a black or gay — or both — hero will be considered something absolutely normal.”

 Hilarious. After all, Marvel decided to make the first Captain America a Black dude named Isaiah Bradley in 2002 (read about that at Vdare) and in a nation that is increasingly non-white – when Spider-Man debuted, America was 90 percent white – what does the pantheon of monochromatic superheroes mean to brown and Black kids? The answer to that question is found at Alternative Right in the Man out of Time piece.

Comic book writers are largely DWLs or radical progressives bent on pushing an agenda through the medium of graphic novels. Having a half-Black/half-Hispanic Spider-Man is hilarious, because his origin story is quite simple: horrible rates of Black and Hispanic crime in New York City can only be dealt with by a half-Black/half-Hispanic hero.

A white hero (like Frank Castle, aka The Punisher) would be called racist for dealing with these thugs, so having Miles Morales don the red and blue tights, becoming your “friendly neighborhood spider” makes absolutely perfect sense.

Crime is monopolized by Brown and Black people in the Big Apple

Black and Hispanic are virtually the only crime plaguing citizens of The Big Apple, so Morales is to be commended for taking the fight where no white guy would be allowed to go and trying to deal with Black and Brown thugs in the only way possible: by having a half-Black/half-Hispanic fight back. 89 percent of the murders in New York City between 2003 and 2009 were committed by Blacks – 60 percent – or Hispanics (29 percent), which helps explain why police found frisking Black and Hispanic males a much needed precaution in keeping the city safe from crime:

Blacks and Latinos were nine times as likely as whites to be stopped by the police in New York City in 2009, but, once stopped, were no more likely to be arrested.  


The more than 575,000 stops of people in the city, a record number of what are known in police parlance as “stop and frisks,” yielded 762 guns.
Of the reasons listed by the police for conducting the stops, one of those least commonly cited was the claim that the person fit the description of a suspect. The most common reason listed by the police was a category known as “furtive movements.”



According to the analysis of the 2009 raw data by the Center for Constitutional Rights, nearly 490,000 blacks and Latinos were stopped by the police on the streets last year, compared with 53,000 whites.

But once stopped, the arrest rates were virtually the same. Whites were arrested in slightly more than 6 percent of the stops, blacks in slightly fewer than 6 percent. About 1.7 percent of whites who were stopped were found to have a weapon, while 1.1 percent of blacks were found with one.

New York City is 25 percent Black and 27 percent Hispanic (whites are 35 percent of the population). Though more than 1/3 of the population, crime is almost an exclusively colored activity in NYC – hence the frisking – and Black people and Hispanic people are in need of a biracial protector to police the thugs in their midst that no snitching campaigns keep protected:

Now a black editorial writer at the Washington Post, Jonathan Capehart, has stumbled upon this truth. Capehart reports that he ran into New York City’s police chief at breakfast one morning and asked about the city’s rising crime rate. The conversation led Capehart to examine the New York City Police Department’s crime data. The color of murder and gun violence in New York
Lo and behold, Capehart learned something he apparently hadn’t known before: Blacks and Hispanics commit essentially all the violent crime in New York. They are also the most likely crime victims.
Capehart quoted the report for 2010 directly:
“Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter victims are most frequently Black (67.0%) or Hispanic (28.1%). White victims account for (3.2%) of all Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter victims while Asian /Pacific Islanders account for (1.8%) of all Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter victims. The race/ethnicity of known Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter suspects mirrors the victim population with Black (65.3%) and Hispanic (30.6%) suspects accounting for the majority of suspects. White suspects account for (1.8%) of all Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter suspects while Asian/Pacific Islanders accounted for (2.4%) of the known Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter suspects.
“The Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter arrest population is similarly distributed. Black arrestees (53.8%) and Hispanic arrestees (36.4%) account for the majority of Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter arrestees while White arrestees (7.1%) and Asian/Pacific Islander (2.2%) arrestees account for the remaining portions of the Murder and Non-Negligent Manslaughter arrest population.”[PDF]
Seeing the news so starkly distressed Capehart. He writes:

“In short, 95.1 percent of all murder victims and 95.9 percent of all shooting victims in New York City are black or Hispanic. And 90.2 percent of those arrested for murder and 96.7 percent of those arrested for shooting someone are black and Hispanic. I don’t even know where to begin to describe the horror I still feel looking at those numbers. But the word ‘hunted’ comes to mind.”

That same article at Vdare would quote Heather MacDonald:

Wrote Mac Donald, [y]ou cannot properly analyze police behavior without analyzing crime”. Mac Donald eviscerated the Times by quoting from the 2009 edition [PDF]of the same report that Capehart used.

“Blacks committed 66 percent of all violent crimes in the first half of 2009 (though they were only 55 percent of all stops and only 23 percent of the city’s population). [Emphasis added]Blacks committed 80 percent of all shootings in the first half of 2009. Together, blacks and Hispanics committed 98 percent of all shootings. Blacks committed nearly 70 percent of all robberies. Whites, by contrast, committed 5 percent of all violent crimes in the first half of 2009, though they are 35 percent of the city’s population (and were 10 percent of all stops). They committed 1.8 percent of all shootings and less than 5 percent of all robberies. The face of violent crime in New York, in other words, like in every other large American city, is almost exclusively black and brown. “[Distorting the Truth About Crime and Race, May 14, 2010 ]

These patterns of near-exclusivity on violent crime by Black and Brown people are found throughout the United States, as major cities like Indianapolis and Kansas City have zip codes (of nearly 100 percent Black residents) who account for disproportionate rates of criminality.

Perhaps they need a biracial superhero as well?

So Peter Parker is dead, and a biracial Spider-Man has taken his place. Marvel operates under a thoroughly left-wing philosophical editorial policy, but the market will eventually dictate a return of the white Parker.

Though one can never forget that the Barack Obama/Spider-Man cover in 2009 was a huge hit among Black people, but this time, the superhero is only half-Black and might speak Spanish, something Mein Obama doesn’t do that often.

Crime in movies and on television shows (think your CSI’s, the various Law and Order shows and Criminal Minds) tends to be performed by white people. In real life, hospitals in major cities are filled with primarily Brown and Black victims of Brown and Black violent crime, being kept alive by advances in medical technology largely by white doctors and white nurses, utilizing the innovations of white scientists and the private sector of pharmaceutical companies that create new breakthroughs in medicine.

Marvel can continue playing the politically correct game of reinventing their characters, but fans know the truth; any move to color existing characters is 100 percent a politically motivated move to put a Blackface on the last realm left for the white actor to star as a hero.

It should be increasingly obvious why Frank Castle is the only hero created by Marvel or DC that makes any sense for the 21st century; stripped of the red, white and blue veneer, Steve Rogers is Frank Castle.

So screw Marvel and DC’s continued attempts to add diversity and politically correctness to an industry plagued by the overwhelming whiteness of its readership. The new Ultimate version of Spider-Man in the form of a half-Black/half-Hispanic actually makes sense for reasons Marvel won’t admit; crime in NYC is almost always committed by a representative of one of these racial groups.

Having a white guy battle a bunch of Black and Brown thugs would be just racist, now wouldn’t it? The whiteness of comic book heroes is crippling, so the only way to combat that is to reinvent popular characters with a Blackface.

Now, who just wrote two books on that subject?

FYI Grant Morrison: I could write a Batman story that would make your pathetic left-wing Dark Knight look like the Adam West version of the character. Give me a crack at Frank Castle, and you’ll see what a true “right-wing” hero (as you call him in your book Supergods) would look like.
