    Who do you think needs immediate calling out?
    Each and every one of them.....dead or alive.

    At the very least, don't continue to honor the memory of a predator who had "a little less conversation, and a little more action" with a teen girl.

    I only hunger for consistency.

(This after giving his approval for her to live with him , but as Priscilla Presley claims they never did anything til they married..no idea if that is true or not) .

    Jerry Lee Lewis had his career go into the shitter for years due to his marriage to his 13 year old cousin. People weren't happy with Lewis and his career while it did return with going into country music in late 1960's , he never was at the peak he was at before that. So you could point at Lewis who took a big hit then.
    In the decades since, people still use the persona, music, & likeness of Elvis in various commercials, TV Shows, and movies. You can actually earn a living as an Elvis impersonator. A wrestler, Honky Tonk Man, was based on Elvis.

    In the decades since, we have seen commercials use "great balls of fire" to promote products. The song was used in Top Gun.

    If we are not going to urinate on their graves, then at the very least, folks should not continue promoting their musical legacies.

    I think folks just need to understand that DC is really into grim-dark stuff.

    I hold great affection for bronze age DC & Marvel. However, I have to cheery pick DC post Alan Moore & Frank Miller. It's like people read their DC work, focused solely on the darkness, and applied it to their books, films, and now animation.

    There is plenty of light hearted DC stuff for those who don't like the darker stories. It's right there for anyone interested and isn't very hard to find. People just seem to focus solely on the dark stories. And even some of the "grim-dark" isn't that dark at all.

    Except the problem is that somehow bi-racial means light skin which is clearly not the case. It's not like all bi-racial people look like Steph Curry (who if I recall supposedly has two black parents.) Hell, if no one would have told me, I'd had assume Toks had two black parents as her features are far from European based.

    So we're already stereotyping not because of the actual features of the actresses, but the perceived idea that bi-racial automatically equals light skin.

    Secondly, the selection of light skin has been significantly reduced over time, and in terms of movies the majority of black males selected have been dark skin. I already posted earlier before about how almost all of the selected black male heroes in comic book movies have been dark skin. Women hasn't shifted as fast as men but it's been on the rise.

    I think he specifically identified as mixed, I haven't actually see him claimed a specific ethnicity. But that didn't change us claiming him when he started making his advancements at golf. Hell, my dad literally started watching and playing golf because of Tiger lol.
