"As comics fans must surely know,Superheroes come and go.Today they’re hot, tomorrow they’re cold,But some there are that break the mold.They’re heroes of whom myths are made, Whose luster never seems to fade.No evildoer shall escape, From him who wears the ebony cape.I refer of course, to that manWhom the world now hails as Batman!”-Stan Lee (Detective Comics #600, May ‘89)

"In what public discourse does the reference to black people not exist? It exists in every one of this nation’s mightiest struggles. The presence of black people is not only a major referent in the framing of the Constitution, it is also in the battle over enfranchising unpropertied citizens, women, the illiterate. It is there in the construction of a free and public school system; the balancing of representation in legislative bodies; jurisprudence and legal definitions of justice. It is there in the theological discourse; the memoranda of banking houses; the concept of manifest destiny and the preeminent narrative that accompanies (if it does not precede) the initiation of every immigrant into the community of American citizens. The presence of black people is inherent, along with gender and family ties, in the earliest lesson every child is taught regarding his or her distinctiveness. Africanism is inextricable from the definition of Americanness—from its origins on through its integrated or disintegrating twentieth-century self."

— Toni Morrison, Playing in the Dark: Whiteness and the Literary Imagination (via knowledgeequalsblackpower)
