A single earring typically is a sign in the gay world you're a top or bottom, depending what side it's on.

>>78022919
That has pretty much lost all meaning even among the gay community. Except for maybe some older gays. Plus, he could have both ears pierced.

My name is Wally West and I'm the fastest pirate alive. When I was a child, I saw my mother download something impossible. My father went to prison for piracy. Then the bay made me the pirate. To the outside world, I'm just an ordinary drag racer, but secretly I use my isp to pirate movies and find others like me, and one day I'll find out what my mother downloaded and get justice for my father. I am Kid Flash.

And you are pretending hair color is a factor when the race is all wrong.

If you want white Wally go back and read the pre flashpoint comics. Stop whining. Hes half in the comics and with a better writer he could be alot better.
And both him and iris are full black only in the show.

Who fucking doesn't. Apparently Barry will take his mask off for anyone he isn't currently trying to date. Once they break up 'hey, i'm the Flash"

I know people asked her if she was asian/black because of her mom and she said she was black.

Just stuff from the internet, but mixed race people in murrika usually identify with the black side due the one drop rule, they believe that if you can't pass as white you are black, slave mentality i guess.

But she is black, asian and white, there'sno people in africa thar looks like her desu.

She's fine with Flash, though.

Also, she'll break up with him because Barry and Joe went full retard and insisted on not keeping her in on the secret AGAIN, even after what happened with Iris.

Right?

Unlike Oliver, Barry doesn't do anything that could classify him as a vigilante. Everything he does is more "good Samaritan" or "citizen's arrest" on steroids, kind of like Superman.

Hell, he already works for the police. It would probably be a lot better for him to come out to the Captain (get it, cuz the captain's gay and like, oh, well...), he'd probably get a lot more done.

But, then again, if that happened, the cops would be forced to hand Barry over to the CIA, NSA or ARGUS so they can replicate and weaponize his powers. That's why I wouldn't tell anyone.

Mix guy here the reason why lots of mixed people don't call themselves White it's because white people insist that mixed people are "black" therefore "them" but not "us". White people even go as far as to try to lie to themselves and say i quote "you are 100% black" even though im clearly part white, even moreso there are whites in florida that are more TAN and darker than me.

So why would mixed people want to identify with thoes who have made it clear you are not one of them.

Thats why obama call himself "black" because only black people accept him, but whites will not accept him as one of them. Even though we are all americans.

the reason why mixed blacks claim their black side is because they are literally the same genetic makeup of an entire group of people in the united states. when whites start identifying this group as white, then you'll see mixed people follow the trend.

That's going to be weird, I am used to Barry being the mentor or almost dad figure but Gustin doesn't sell that not to mention Wally's actor is too old for that.

Still I am hoping for a big bro and little bro type of thing and Iris being a big sis.

>>78046642
> I don't want any of this "troubled youth from the urban streets"

Well Wally was a "troubled youth from the suburbs" in the comics but he was a troubled youth nonetheless since his parents were really fucking toxic, especially his dad so I would be OK with CW Wally being troubled as long as he's not a walking stereotype.

What saved Wally in the comics was Barry and Iris, he pretty much saw them as a second set of parents although that shit wouldn't work in the show.

You can have Joe build his relationship with Wally and Iris and Barry be like his older siblings though, but seeing how Francine was a drug addict and shit he probably is troubled in some way.

And out of those four, two of them were changed primarily because they were recognizable stars. From a studio perspective, if I had the choice of some no name white guy and Will Smith, I'm taking smith every time (unless I also have to take the son).

Nigga, I haven't even seen how their relationship develops yet. But yes. If he immediately gets jealous and lets his butthurt at something barry has nothing to do with cloud his judgment and color his decisions then, while not necessarily making him a bad person, it does make him a self centered, willfully ignorant individual and indicates a worrying lack of self awareness and self restraint.

In most of what I've read about him he was a major asshole and a cunt to people and I mostly wanted to punch him, but yeah he matures at some point but then he just becomes a bit bland.

I have no problem with him being like that in the CW, him being a jerk is true to comic Wally's personality as long as at some point he grows out of it (which seems like the direction they are going to take) and as long as he show doesn’t give him the reason like Arrow does to Felicity (which it won't).

You'd think that after Stan Lee himself said that the racial re-assignment of established characters has gotten out of hand, comic book editors would finally be thinking twice about it, but they're not. Society has gotten so bad that even the most influential comic book creator in history has no voice compared to the social justice movement.

There's nothing wrong with wanting more non-white characters in the comics you make, and if that's the case than go ahead and write about the non-white characters who exist, or create new characters.

Changing the race of a character is stupid though. If they wanted a black Flash character, they should have just made one instead of hijacking one who already exists and is loved by many fans. No-one wants to hear that though. They care just as much about erasing white characters from history as they do about adding non-white characters.

No you don't.
You avoid bad publicity.

South Americans (where CW shows are HUGE, to the point Flash numbers are just below HBO shows) don't like blacks, Europeans aside from british don't need "more blacks" on TV, even the most PC people don't go to see black movies.

This shows are not made to be only american, Dramas? sure, Small indie stuff? sure. But most Hollywood stuff and big budget shows from small channels (crap like smallville or supernatural) are made for the international market. So where are the ASIANS or the middle easterns? Where are the puerto ricans? etc.

There's 3 countries in the world with a population of over 10 million blacks that are part of the "market", USA, Brazil, and Colombia. And blacks in colombia are closer to mexicans than to any black guy in America. No one minds black characters, but put too many blacks on a movie or tv show and people will call it a "black show/movie".

I don't even care about another race swap as it makes sense with the Iris race swap. What I am mad about is the fact that this isn't even remotely Wally. Why make Iris's brother Wally, why not do more time shenanigans and have the real Flash II. Based on the description this guy has noting in common with his comic counterpart. It just screams "we need a black superhero". Honestly the most egregious part of the whole casting is how much of a tool/faggot this guy looks.

Not bait.
Latins spend 99% of their time tracing their heritage back to as many whites as possible.
That's how pathetic and self hating they are.
It's not even as bad as how the indians have an entire goddamend religion based around skin tone. And how that absolute scum gandhi brought that falling out of favor madness back to make himself into some kind of great holyman.
