That writer should be fired. He's got Miles out here on these streets shucking and jiving.

It's funny cause the author thought he was fighting racism with his Miles Morales comics.

Morales's version of Moljnir, the hammer that Thor carries is also covered in graffiti, with him shouting "It's hammer time" every time he comes to use it, much like MC Hammer did back in 1990.
How did this get approved? Lmao.

These comics didn't have just a writer. They had an artist, they had an inkist, they had an editor; they had multiple people working on this and at no point did any of those people say "hey maybe we should have an actual black person check this out" before they decided to put this out in the world for people to see.

So its actually even worse than you think.

Say they had someone there to represent what they were trying to depict and it got their seal of approval. That's one out of millions. Who's to say someone else wouldn't like it? They should have just not done this with or without representation.

I think this is one of the worse woke blunders Marvel has created, way worse than New Warriors. The hood is not a utopia, same with equivalents like the Favelas and the trailer park, and most black people don't see it as a utopia.
