Racists freak out over muslim Batman

http://www.comicsalliance.com/2010/12/28/racists-batman-muslim-paris/

This all screams of ridiculous xenophobia. Honestly if your only opposition to a character is that he's a muslim, you've got problems.

This Islamaphobia is an utter travesty.
:facepalm:

Not all Muslims are terrorists or bad people, some of these extremist terrorists give Muslims a bad name to the point that American get very racist and ignorant. Islam teaches peace not war like every other religion.

Nightrunner looks freaking awesome! I'm excited for more of this guy, this could be super interesting.

As for the racism. Ignorant people are by definition...ignorant. @#$% 'em.
 
Do racists even read comics.

I can't see a skin head going to comicon.
 
I wasn't aware that religion was considered a race these days. Weird.
 
No they are Anti-Semitic.
 
Regardless of the race/religion/ethnicity/nationality differences; this is ******ed. The character is said to have lived in France his entire life, thus making him French. Also, this Batman thing isn't about finding a Captain America-style representative superhero (which still wouldn't disqualify a Muslim, and this would be just as bigoted then), which makes it more confusing.
 
Nightrunner as presented in this year's annuals (BATMAN & DETECTIVE) was damn cool. I liked him better than Batman Japan (Mr. Unknown II).
 
This is as ridiculous as the time the Klan had a problem with Barney the dinosaur because they heard the actor wearing the purple dino suit was black.
Jerks, every one of them.
 
I hope DC makes a Buddhist Batman that just offers sage advice.
 
Well there should be a term for people who are biased against Muslims because there's a great deal of them in America these days.

Theophobics are people who have an unreasonable fear of a religion that is different from theirs. Islamophobic might apply. Neither have the ring that 'racist' does, I agree, but are far more accurate.
 
I will say this, I can see how a person with a French, uh, ethnicity(?) would be a little bummed out about not having someone like him in a Batman book (because it's not like Batman's going to run into a French Batman in an Arab country), but to turn it into anything more than a slight letdown is, well, stupid.

Ever since 9/11 in 2001, it's been going on. Their justification for the bias is 9/11, which is total ******** because not all Muslims are terrorists.

Also, US military killed lots of innocent Iraqi's and Afghani's, They're no better than those terrorists.

You mean other than wearing uniforms, being trained on how not to intentionally cause collateral damage, and being under orders from a recognized government, then yes, they aren't any better than the terrorists that perpertrated 9-11....:doh:
 
I'm gonna go ahead and remove my subscription to this thread, if this is gonna become all political.

I would like to say, it's generally accepted that soldiers killing people during a war is a little different than what is classified as a terrorist attack. For instance, it would be worse if I, as an American, walked into a Muslim school with a bomb than if, during a military conflict, a school was bombed while fighting. Obviously though, that's up to significant moral and ethical interpretation as, ultimately, people are dead either way.

In short though, let's not get too fired up about any of this. Yes, there is prejudice against Muslims in America. And yes, it's horrible. Unfortunately, there's prejudice over pretty much everyone, everywhere, in the world. Irish hate the Northern Irish, Jews hate the Muslims, and Muslims hate the Hindus, etc, etc. And it's all a shame. But we mustn't get too, well, fired up about it because that just creates more hated and anger. Which is the problem in the first place.
 
I honestly am sick of the anti-muslim sentiments that my fellow Americans perpetuate. The sad thing is that it goes back further than 9/11. Ignorant white Americans have been hating on all kinds of minorities since this country's inception. White people are a very ignorant majority in America (I'm white okay). The sad thing is that anytime something overtly terrible happens that is perpetrated by a minority (racial or religious), white people are the 1st to condemn. It makes me ashamed to be white!

And now there's outcry over a comic book? Gimme a ******* break!

Yes because only white people hate.
 
Well, obviously not, but white people hate for the stupidest reasons! LOL.
 
You'd be surprised...

I used to think similarly, but there's those kinds of people in every race..

It's just "white" people generally live in stronger media outlet countries, so we hear about it a lot more.

But on my personal opinion, I think is a great idea for the france batman and has potential to carry a story where he would have to stop muslims from doing something wrong just as much as he would have to stop the frenchies!

Both sides have wrongs being done, and it'd be nice to see the minority spawn the hero first!
 
I agree. I think the Batman from France is a decent idea.
