    What I find fascinating are the many fans (mostly white) who come out to cape for this guy. Lots of talk of forgiveness and "he was just a kid you're gonna ruin his life!" and "ANTFIA/BLM/LEFT BAD" and "you woke types ruin everything!!!111"
    Meanwhile no talk about how his victim is doing.

    Good on Ray Fisher, looks like they went after the wrong one. As if creatively WB/DC doesn't have enough issues. I know Mamoa was mentioned as backing some of the claims but there were some high level talent also in front of that camera who've not heard from one way or another.

    Christopher Priest describes Marvel’s office environments in the late 70s and 80s as fairly rife with “Mad Men style” racial/sexist jokes but that Stan Lee (largely removed from ‘the bullpen’) was always nothing less than respectful and encouraging (he was soon promoted/demoted to Los Angeles to head up pitching the film projects). .

    Interesting that DC moved its editorial operations to Burbank, California from NYC in 2015, ostensibly to be closer to the movie/TV divisions. I doubt that things got better as far as racial diversity in hiring.
    Despite the presence of high profile folks like Jim Lee, I wonder how many racial minority editors are at DC now? And even during Axel Alonso's tenure at Marvel, I wonder how many BIPOC folks got mentored on the editing/writing side of things? And of course, there was the "there's nothing to see here" controversy when CB Cebulski's Japanese pen name/backstory was revealed.

    I remember inquiring about internship programs for recent college graduates and got a ‘no, we don’t have them’ response. Especially as of 2020, some might assume things are better. But they aren’t. Just imagine unless you are actively in college in NYC/L.A., forget it.

    The comics publishers tend to have perfunctory white liberals who suffer from the conceit that because these aren’t the days of segregation, and they’re in New York or Los Angeles and not Alabama, that they don’t have plenty of their own blindspots that lead to racist outcomes. Sad.

    DC? I am not sure now.
    Marvel? They have plenty of female editors/assistant editors. Nonblack POC editors tended to be in the X-Office the last time I looked.
    I do know Assistant editors at Marvel got writing gigs-the last Nova series was done by an assistant editor.

    They do have them or at least had them in 2018 and they were posted on job sites.
    They were looking for interns.

    A lot of the issue is where to find these job openings. Not all of them are on the normal job hunting sites.

    I looked up the books they both edited.

    Harvey Richards pretty much did the A list books, kids books, a few events like 52 and books like Booster Gold. His resume on those say he should have gotten more promotions.

    HOWEVER where he bombed was POC-especially BLACK lead books. New 52 Static, Cyborg (1 & 2), Batwing, New 52 Firestorm, Katanna & Black Lightning. HIs lst gig was Justice Leageu Odyssey-with the complaint it became a Jessica Cruz book with Cyborg getting sidelined.

    Williams-Impulse was suppose to fail under him. It did NOT. He also got Hitman, Starman and a book called JSA.
    Now if he had failed at those books-here is how huge that would have been for DC and even HBO.

    Impulse under Williams saw him hire to do art some no name guy called Ethan Van SCiever.
    JSA was greenlighted by him-a book that sold well enough to be passed on to some guy named Johns. To be his full time gig.

    So the future Green Lantern Hal Jordan team was bought in by a black man.

    All those books had at worst rabid cult followings. And you can make a case that DC bailed on the original Batwing too soon since they ended up using him in animated DVD specials.

    If those two had been anybody else they would have been promoted.

    DC books fail all the time and even when they don't they deliberately reboot them in favor of older characters.

    What constitutes success at a company that does that even when the books sell ( look at Super Sons as an example).
