    Default When Superman Fought Xenophobia

    A vintage comic book-style illustration that shows Superman lecturing a group of students on the values of tolerance has circulated widely on social media. “And remember, boys and girls, your school—like our country—is made up of Americans of many different races, religions and national origins,” Superman says with a wag of his finger, “So… If YOU hear anybody talk against a schoolmate or anyone else because of his religion, race or national origin—don’t wait: tell him THAT KIND OF TALK IS UN-AMERICAN. Help keep your school All American!”

    The illustration is authentic. It was drawn by Superman comic book artist Wayne Boring around 1949, and it was stamped on a protective schoolbook cover (one of which recently sold at auction for $805) and a poster. But the comic is more than a quaint piece of Americana; it’s a relic from a largely forgotten nationwide tolerance movement that swept the country for more than a decade. Powerful people in government also suspected Superman’s brand of patriotism was ... anti-American propaganda.

    maybe we could get a new hero



    we could call him super Bone Spur


    he could fly around the USA (in a recliner on a private jet) and fart and burp fast food while grabbing the female servers pussy and ogling pictures of her 12 year old daughter while he beats his tiny rancid penis with his tiny little hands.

    On arrival to the places that need to be saved he can tell everyone to quit whining about the fact he cant help because his fee hurt

    Just like the term "racism", you and your ilk have tried to redefine "xenophobia". It won't work, normal people still know the real definitions.

    There's no such thing as "white privilege", it's a racist term. And it's far from the only racist term you and your ilk use. Kindly go fuck yourself crack whore.

    Was there no "white privilege" when that poster was drawn?

    I think it was so taken for granted that Superman doesn't even mention it, except for a vague reference to "different races".
    I guess that would cover it.

    There's no such thing as "white privilege". That's a false narrative created by leftist lunatics.

    Well, evince mocked me about my son, who died of melanoma cancer. So yes, I'm kinda bitter about it. She is the only person I address in that manner, she deserves it. Is it wrong of me? Of course. But watching your son literally die in his mother's arms has a profound negative effect on one's soul. I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.

    That actually does sound like something Evince would do. I'd probably block her at that point, though.

    Do you think maybe you could try being less rude to people who aren't rude to you, then? Not Evince because fuck her.

    Wow, back in the 1950s, children respected their elders. What a fascinating time!
