A new Superman comic has the National White Alliance up in arms. In a recent issue of Action Comics #987 titled “The Oz Effect,” Superman puts his body in front of undocumented immigrants who are being fired on by a white supremacist. But the National White Alliance took offense to the comic and called it racist.
“This is more of liberal Hollywood’s war on white men,” said Brian Blanc, president of the National White Alliance. “The image of white men is being demonized. White men have never been a threat to society, but we are the most discriminated group.”
Blanc’s views are shared by many white Americans, according to a 2016 Washington Post/ABC poll.
“Our average white respondent believed that at the time of our survey in 2011, anti-white bias was an even bigger problem than anti-black bias,” said the Washington Post.
In spite of Blanc’s claims of white men not being a threat mainly white domestic terrorists have killed twice as many Americans than Muslim terrorists from 2008-2016, according to the Nation Institute’s Investigative Fund and The Center for Investigative Reporting’s Reveal.
“When it comes to right-wing extremism, attackers are also mostly men and almost purely white,” said freelance writer David Neiwert in an interview with the Huffington Post.
However, FOX News radio show host Todd Starnes was also incensed by the Superman comic. He accused the comic of promoting liberal doctrine.
“It’s unfortunate that DC Comics is turning its stable of iconic heroes into political pawns – hell-bent on indoctrinating our kids,” said Starnes in an op-ed on FOX News. “Remember when Superman stood for truth, justice and the American way? Then again, Clark Kent is technically an illegal alien – a native of Krypton.”
