I was reading a bit about Nick Spencer and Captain America and there is a *lot* of commentary that begins with “I like Nick Spencer's work. He's not a bad author. But…”
I'm like… if I had to get paid to feel obligated to say what a good creator this person was, despite being work that causes harm / being a bigot / being a rapist/murderer…
I'd be very, very, very rich.
@treefolio how is it that you're able to quantify what harm Spencer's done to the safety of non-white fans and balance it with whatever “freshness” he's added to Captain 🇺🇸's narrative?
What is it that you know that other non-white fans living under Trump, and seeing Nazi cap being used by white supremacists, don't?
@tariqk what harm has Spencer done? right wing rhetoric (in America) was happening around and before the election cycle, before that was happening in Sweden, ramping up in France currently, etc. it's a stretch because Cap is literally a blonde, blue-eyed white male and has likely been used in Neo-nazi art before. this isn't a new thing.
