Fox News: as stupid on the web as they are on TV

Ugh... I don't know where to start with this story. Fox news is "reporting" that thanks to Barack Obama the world is finally ready for a black comic book superhero.

"Since their inception, there have been only a few black superheroes in comic books, and fewer still have achieved mainstream appeal....
But Obama's rise to the presidency now has many people in the business of creating and marketing heroes hoping that a black superhero will finally break into mainstream pop culture."

sounds stupid right? wait for it... wait for it....

"Before Obama won the presidency, blacks were largely implausible as superheroes, Craft said.
"I think that there is a perception of black people that America is comfortable with, and I'm not sure the hero role was it," he said. "We can be athletes and rappers, but not Superman."

Bingo! We have a winner for dumbest thing you'll read on-line today. Martin Luther King Jr? sucker. Malcolm X? I'm pretty sure he's a rapper. Booker T. Washington? He was an outfielder for the cards right? Hiram Revels? I think he was on Sanford and Son... wait Hiram Revels was the first black man to serve in the US Senate? Are you sure he wasn't on Sanford and Son, I'm pretty good at remembering these kinds of things...

Ok, back to my point. Fox News sucks... on all levels. Now for your pleasure some black superheroes. A few of which have already been on TV or in movies.
