Superman, black would be the coolest dude in the world. Imagine Sam Jackson in a cape. Running around. That would be a good movie.
I think what a lot of people don’t get is, these people aren’t real. If you cast a black dude as John F Kennedy, that’s wrong. If you cast a white dude as Martin Luther King, that’s wrong. These people aren’t real. The suits aren’t real. There aren’t really superheroes in the world.
At some point in time, you have to steep yourself in reality and say, ‘hey, it’s not about what they look like, it’s about casting a good actor in the role. If you’re sitting at home and you can’t see a black guy as Nick Fury, maybe there’s something wrong with you.

Florida city police department embedded with KKK members
July 21, 2014

Ann Hunnewell and her central Florida police officer husband knelt in the living room of a fellow officer’s home, with pillow cases as makeshift hoods over their heads. A few words were spoken and they, along with a half-dozen others, were initiated into the local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan, she says.

Last week, that initiation ceremony, which took place five years ago, stunned residents of the small town of Fruitland Park, who found out an investigative report linked two city officers with the secret hate society that once was violently active in the area. Ann Hunnewell’s ex-husband, George Hunnewell, was fired, and deputy chief David Borst resigned from the 13-member Fruitland Park Police Department. Borst has denied being a member.

James Elkins, a third officer who Ann Hunnewell says recruited her and her husband, resigned in 2010 after his Klan ties became public.

OMG I’m watching a video about the restoration of the long lost (but mediocre as hell) Beyond the Rocks (1922) and some idiot in the comments is like, “Sorry but this ‘restoration’ still has dust and scratches, liek FAIL.”

Does this moron get how restoration actually works? This film has been…

Answer
  • Question: Regarding romances with companions in Dragon Age 2, was it honestly your intent to make everybody bisexual? I personally never interpreted it this way. I figured that just how choosing your skin tone at character generation adjusted that or the other Hawkes, or how your class choice decides which sibling survives, that choosing Hawke to be male creates a universe in which Anders is gay, else the game takes place in a universe in which he's straight. Was that not the intent? - Anonymous

    We wrote them as bisexual, yes, and that was our intention from the outset of DA2. Some of the characters (such as Merrill) don’t discuss their sexuality, and thus it’s left ambiguous and open to interpretation by the player… but keep in mind that interpretation doesn’t change their sexuality. Just because you’re romancing Merrill with a male PC, for instance, doesn’t mean she’s straight, it just means you’re not exposed to another side of her character in that playthrough.

    Could you stop this? We aren’t the idiots you’re looking for. We all played and heard the conversations. Isabela is Bi, Fenris could be; everyone else has their sexuality on a toggle. Merrill, if not romanced by f!Hawke will mention that she can’t even imagine lesbian sex. Anders will only allude to any attraction to men unless you play m!Hawke.

    Making the characters playersexual, not bisexual, was the decision you made; and while slightly disrespectful of a choice it’s the one you made. Own it. We’ve all seen the game, we all know this claim is rather bs.

    Stop trying to claim it was something else this late after; it just makes it seem like you have no respect for your fans

    I’m telling you what we intended when we wrote the characters. The writers discussed it, and while the characters did indeed react to PC’s differently (Anders did not mention Karl to a female PC, for instance, because Jennifer believed it wasn’t something a guy would do—not because he was straight in that playthrough) that did not change what they were or how we thought about them as we were writing them.

    If you feel you know better, then by all means continue to do so. It does, however, seem rather disrespectful on your part even while you claim the reverse.
