    Definitely the latter, since most of the Upstarts were mutants anyway.

    And the MLF did NOT hate mutants... Their name is literally Mutant Liberation Front.

    In the early Ultimate comics run by Millar, there was baggage between the human-looking mutants and the animal looking mutants.

    In Marauders, we have Masque and presumably other Morlocks who don't live on Krakoa, but who are accepting Krakoan money from Emma.

    Racism? Nah, not much that I can remember. I mean, I do find it odd that everyone involved with the X-Men is level headed on this. You'd think there would be some friction at some point. No one's perfect and everyone's different. I'm surprised we haven't seen a culture shock yet. Rogue's not but seeing where she's from maybe years ago when she first debuted it might have been interesting to see her and Storm not mesh well at the beginning but get past it. Moments long gone now. Perhaps because they are mutants and for the most part understand there's bigger fights out there than skin color and culture difference.

    Not racism but there was that time Rahne lost her #&#& when she smelled Shatterstar on Rictor. I think it was just shock. She was still into Rictor at the time and was kind of heart broken he moved on. Couple that with ingrained Catholic upbringings and animal-like reaction and you got what you got

    I remember when the X-Men made fun of Wolverine because he was Canadian.

    I remember Ink being pretty racist towards Dani but then again, he was an unlikable character with no redeeming qualities.

    Is this racism, though? Looks like jealousy to me. Bobby found rational justifications to his feelings…

    It’s not really racism but it’s still learned hatred from Bobby’s father(who is definitely racist). Bobby’s feelings are based on paranoia and prejudice.

    I didn't say the attitude was rational but his justifications were, at first sight, more rational than "I'm feeling insecure and I'm jealous of the newcomers." which is difficult to admit.

    True, Bobby's father is a difficult man.

    People can find “rational” justifications for any type of hatred. This isn’t racism, it’s xenophobia but the excuse doesn’t matter much when you’re still... being xenophobic.

    Well, how does this story end? Is Bobby still xenophobic towards Kurt and Peter then?
