Nobody tell them that Peter Parker is Jewish, okay?

Oh fer fuck sakes. This is like that one bit about the muslim ninja in the batman comics and Superman saying he's not american but a "citizen of the world", these are good things!
This is a positive change in the culture. What, your white kid can't relate to black kid?
God forbid they found out Blue Beetle is now Hispanic and the Atom is Chinese, their heads might explode.

addendum: Steve Ditko apparently made spider-man wear a mask that covered his whole head precisely to keep not only his identity but also his ethnicity a secret. There was suppose to be a scene in the comics where spider-man saves a white guy from a black criminal only to hear the white guy say something racist to which spider-man responds: "what color do you think I am under this mask?"
Oh, then he'd be pleased to hear that the current Question is a Hispanic lesbian.
A completely un-serious counter-point to Ditko:
How could somebody listen the corn-ball things Spidey says and not immediately conclude he's white?
Excuse me sir, are you saying there are no black cornballs?

Basically, all that convinced me that this anchorman is has worthless opinions is when they played the clip from the new Spider-Man movie and he said "I wanna see that".

Also, this is ULTIMATE Spiderman, regular Earth-616 Spiderman is still Peter Parker.

All my stars are for "traditional American hero", because obviously traditional American heroes are not black.

These people are outrage zombies, pure and simple. They need to be deeply offended and cultivate paranoid fantasies to keep functioning. They apparently reproduce via memetic contagion, and therefore must keep outrage levels extremely high in order to convert others.
The other explanation is just way more depressing.

Well I mean they're right. Diversity is basically completely our fault.

This reminds me of that one time Fox said The Passion of the Christ was a "Patrotic Film" and Brokeback Mountain "wasn't".
