Don't be surprised if you get some kind of punishment for this. And I mean from this site's authorities.
The fact that you said the name of a character and then 'black' is enough for that, even if they admit that you might have not been racist at all themselves.
It happened to me when I suggested that a black version of a character would be a bad idea even when I stated clearly that I wasn't being racist and that it was a problem, as you say, of the iconic nature of the character.
Yeah, that ridiculous it is.
I hope you get luckier with it than I did.
