The Airing of Grievances
Wednesday, December 08, 2004
Check out this correction from today's New York Times:
A report in the "Arts, Briefly" column on Nov. 16 about a new Marvel Comics monthly series featuring the superhero Black Panther misstated his ethnicity and cited a precedent incorrectly. While many of his adventures take place in the United States he is African, not African-American. He would not have been the first African-American hero in comics in any case; the Falcon held that distinction.Nice to see the Times paying particularly close attention to the big issues. After all, we wouldn't want The Falcon getting pissed.
