Hard NOC Life emerges from its winter hibernation, and you can thank Michelle Rodriguez for that. After telling TMZ POCs need to “stop stealing white people’s superheroes,” the actress took to Facebook to say she meant POCs need to focus on creating their own stories.
Topics covered on the show include:
- The false choice between supporting independent comic creators of color and wanting representation in mainstream comics
- Whether superheroes really do belong only to white people
- Why casting actors of color in roles that are traditionally white is not diversity for diversity’s sake, especially when traditionally non-white characters are cast with white people all the time
