meh I don't really care that he's gay, I mean it's not like they are pushing it down anyone's throat and he seems like a fine character so far.
Don't know how good his superhero persona will be once he becomes Mr Terrific, but I will give it a chance
>make program to work out which employees are shit and which employees deserve a raise
>program determines you should be fired
>this is how we know you're a genius and should be working under the CEO
What if they got Jack Donovan to play his nemesis. A gay skinhead who hates him for being a nigger AND a flamer?
dang I was hoping that his husband/boyfriend was going to turn out to become Mr Terrific and that he was Michael Holt, a hard ass and confident business man starting up Holt industries
That could work nicely, but Michael has never hit me as the angry black guy type, more just a hard ass business man.
It would be interesting to have him kind of have a rivalry with Ollie though, maybe just a constant I blame you for what happened to my husband thing
Did you notice that both Flash and Arrow have a wise black man who counsels the hero character?
This is obvious propaganda because the racist stereotype of a black man would be violent, stupid, loud, irrational etc. right? The last guy in the world you'd go to for advice.
So they make those characters the opposite of all of those things.
Yeah I don't like that he's gay but I don't want to throw a hissy fit over either because I'm glad they're using him AT ALL. He's one of my favorite DC super heroes.
But if they wanted a gay character they could of easily, easily fit Midnighter into Arrow and he'd fit PERFECTLY.
That was my exact compliment. Like when he and Felicity got attacked I wanted him to actually pull some bad ass shit to show he's got pontential.
I want Future's End, Kayne Jobs Mr. Terrific too.
Also does anyone else want Curtis to bring back Brother Eye? That's his big thing in DC mythos, him and Bruce creating Brother Eye and fucking everything up. I think it's fitting that the universe destroying monster comes from Felicity here.
>implying the magical negro can't be seen as a racist stereotype
Oh, it is. And that's the typical back and forth you see right?
>magical negro is reverse racism!
"there's no such thing as reverse racism, shitlord!"
When this negro techie was introduced you guys may have also noticed that the evil capitalist executive in the meeting was black, then the first woman Felicity speaks to who guilts her is also black.
There's a problem with this statement. A learned man can probably point out some kind of fallacy in this situation.
If a person is preoccupied with race and you say
>boy, you sure do talk about race a lot.
And they say: oh yeah? well you noticed i'm talking about race!
I would suggest that attempting to expose politically correct narratives in a TV show makes you the greentext guy, not the black text guy.
I wouldn't actually mind having some black or at least non-whites as villians or antagonists. Part of the problem is we can barely say anything about race that doesn't fit the current narrative
