ANY kind of comparison to a black man or woman is something I am against, period. I really don't care if a guy is white and is compared, but just a black man or woman. Just any type of comparison I just really, really hate. Always have. Anything that could be even thought of as racist I despise.

Maybe you would know if you've had someone you cared about die due to racist douchebags that you soon start to hate anything that could be looked at such. To me, that goomba term sounded close enough.

I can't believe the nonsense around here. JAMIE FOXX CAN PLAIN OUT ACT HIS @$$ OFF!!! And he's going to be stellar as Electro as he was in Ray, Collateral, Law Abiding Citizen, etc. And this whole Goomba talk, really?

Oh well then I see what you mean. What the heck Messiah, I don't see the slightest how anyone can think he looks like a goomba :S
I think he's referring to the Goomba's from the Super Mario Bros. movie.

In fact you're one of the few haters of ASM around these parts.

I despise racism as well. But you mean it's more OK to call a white man or woman something. That's just wrong. It's not more or less OK to make animal comparisions to any human being.

Harmless creatures until you approach them. Mario's just a dick.

Lol at the Italian thing.

So it's okay for everyone to say Lizard looks like a Goomba but someone says Jamie Foxx does and "holy **** guys we have a problem here."

I'm starting to think you might be a little racist towards giant lizard people, Anno. I'm slightly offended.

I don't care if someone wants to call me anything to be perfectly honest. Of course it's a big deal if someone calls any human being an awful name, but the term goomba towards Foxx, who's a black man...that just sounded unsettling to read.

I like it. Foxx is going to have a great outing in Django and Electro is not a character that is so cemented that you can't give someone like Foxx the role.

Those that say no cause hes black and Electro is white, just need to die soon and realize we live in 2012 not 1912 and seeing these character being brought to life by anyone is a miracle and should just be looked at who is the better actor.

As I said, I thought he was referring to those turtle dudes and thought he might see something in the face that I just don't because it didn't seem to have anything to do with his black skin or anything like that. But seeing as a goomba is one of those brown mushrooms which it's pretty much impossible to even look like the slightest in facial features it seems it was only because of the skin color in which I agree that it was a racist comment.

And yeah, calling anyone anything ugly and downgrading is just bad, period.

I'm not a fan of Foxx and would much rather see someone else in the role, but it has nothing to do with him being black. I'd be all for another black actor in the Electro role.

I'm not racist AT ALL, but I am admittedly upset a black person is playing Electro. I felt the same when Michael Clarke Duncan was cast as Kingpin. Oddly enough I didn't have a problem with Idris Elba playing Heimdall.

It's fine if you find it a great start, but I certainly don't and outside of "these parts" a lot of people feel the same way that I do.
yes and outside these parts the ASM haters are still the vocal minority.

Personally I know more people who hated TDKR than ASM, but the last thing I want is a Spider-Man vs. Batman flame war.

I was hoping for Ben Foster or Aaron Paul as Electro. Oh well... if Foxx shaves his head bald like he did in "Miami Vice", he could be the Ultimate Electro.

That was the previous franchise. Lets not let that repetition spread into this one.

Well and Lizard didn't really become "good", perse, he was cured. The Lizard is still evil, it's just that Connors ISN'T the Lizard anymore.
