It's all so tiresome. When this show crashes for various reasons, people will blame it on the public simply being racist when in reality it's just people are exhausted from woke nonsense. They get a gaggle of morons in the writers room thinking as long as they stick to the buzzwords and race swapping it will sell.

If it makes you feel any better it probably would have been trash with a white Batgirl

No doubt, Batgirl is a trash character. At least as Oracle, Barbara Gordon wasn't just another glorified bat clone.

I think the saddest part is that it will get rave reviews simply for casting a black girl.



It kind of makes sense though

Just saw an article about it. Season 2(?) whatever the new season is, has seen a 80% drop in audience. SHOCKER.

I think what they are doing is racist because they are using her to get views if you know what i mean -

In schitts creek there is a gay couple but it doesnt affect much and they normalize it as they should so its not like "whoa lookey here oh yeah its $43 admission".

I think it should be something no one thinks twice about not something that needs to be a spectacle.

It's all just incredibly insulting to everyone. Fans of the series, black people, white people, Lee Stanford, the original lesser known inventor of Bat Man World United LTD LLC.

What they're doing, and wrongly so, is listening to the extremely vocal minority on Twitter and thinking it's a bigger deal than it actually is. That's what they've been doing for the past 5 to 10 years. When it fails, and it usually does, they have an easy out by blaming it on racism when it's really just a turd.

It's sad really, if I were black I'd be most offended by the fact that they keep race swapping legacy characters because they don't have an ounce of creativity in the whole damn company. Yeah sure ok, making new characters of any race is like 99% failure rate in the comics industry, but you should at least try. Imagine wanting a super hero that looks like you except you cant have it, you have to ride on the coat tails of a white character because the writers are so uncreative they can't think of a realistic black character that doesn't have an electricity power.

Here's a thought: Give them a power that isn't electricity. Just for a start.
