    Superman saved undocumented workers from a racist — and conservative media is mad about it

    The latest issue of Action Comics No. 987 contains a scalding scene: A white supremacist, fed up with a company that just laid him off, decides to load up his machine gun and kill the undocumented workers he believes took his job. Luckily, in the nick of time, Superman arrives to shield the would-be victims from a storm of bullets.

    Superman then subdues the shooter, telling him that he needs to take more personal responsibility and to rethink his homicidal tendencies. He also tells the police officers who respond to the incident to see to it that the shooter’s intended victims are safe (Panels from the comic in link).

    Still, the action of preventing a mass murder, which seems in line with Superman’s moral compass, hasn’t come without controversy. Fox News has a column calling the Man of Steel a “propaganda tool for the defenders of illegal aliens,” and the right-wing website Breitbart derided him as “Social Justice Supes.”

    Their argument is that comic book writers and artists have inserted a pro–illegal immigrant agenda into their comics, and that it’s part of a larger trend of politicizing comic books.

    But there are a couple of things to note about the issue.

    The first is that the “undocumented workers” designation in Action Comics No. 987 comes from the homicidal white supremacist — an unreliable narrator. It could be interpreted that he’s shooting at the workers at his company who aren’t white because he’s stereotyping and projecting his bigotry onto them.

    Vivify, "illegal aliens" is not a race. Unless you're a racist and you're saying all mexicans are illegal aliens.

    The characters Superman saves speak Spanish; that they did so in reaction to being shot at indicates Spanish is their natural language.

    They used terms such as; 'illegal aliens' (not a race) and 'undocumented workers' (not a race) Nowhere is the issue with race, that's something you made up, you're projecting and it's not very honest.

    You should be asking, Is the comic portraying racist stereotypes. Is that the true racism.

    I am very much in favor of free and open immigration, the situation between NZ and Aus is an ideal to aim at, in the old days you didn't even need a passport. My point here is you're playing that tired old battered race card. You're begining to sound like zahalnzu.

    Edit: also proud to say I've worked in a number of countries illegally, including the US.

    It's also the title of your thread, and that's the problem.

    This is the link I followed:

    https://www.vox.com/culture/2017/9/15/16307794/superman-undocumented-workers-white-supremacist-action-comics

    There was nothing about race in the vox article. And there was nothing about race by Fox or Brietbart. The issue is illegal aliens and undocumented workers. It's not about race. You should do more than read headlines, especially headlines from TYT.

    You've tried to secondhand some humor from TYTs, but the joke is on Cenk Uygur and you.

    Only you and a few friends (if you have any) have your narrow and childishly literal definition of racism.
