TimeWarner hires white killers, white freaks, everybody who's white in between.


(click image)
Lately, America's whitebread Fortune 500 corporations have been falling over their $800 Aeron chairs to insert ads into special "diversity" advertising sections in business pubs (this one's from the October 30th Fortune). I give credit to TimeWarner for one thing: at least they didn't put "Diversity" in the headline, like every other unimaginative advertiser in the section. It is, however, the first word of the bodycopy.

previously:
1. Diversity has a Mascot.
2. NEWS FLASH! Ad Industry Doesn't Like Minorities.
3. R&R, minus R&B.

So they try to connect the issue of diversity in their workforce to diversity in program choices. How does that work again?

Wait a minute - Green Lantern is a black guy. And Martain Manhunter (though he isn't in that picture of the Justice League) is a Martain. Black dude + Martain = Diversity!

look at that...Green Lantern IS pictured. But he has to work the graveyard shift, of course.

How about diversifying the ethnicity of The Sopranos, hah Time Warner?

anon: Doesn't matter that GL's shorter.

Everyone knows he's got the biggest superhero cock - especially the chicks.

check it.
Womder Woman is a proud Amazon, and Themyscira's *really* close to Lesbos.
Superman should be read as Jewish. Seriously. Walk into any, ANY, comic book shop and ask. Seigal and Shuster's Unermensch was a Jew.
Green Lantern? Black.
Hawkgirl? Chica Halcon. Her costume's *Mayan* fer Chrissakes.
J'onn J'onzz? Martian. A green-skinned martian.
Wally West (the Flash) is pure Irish/Scot/Welsh mutt.
So.......
The priveliged white male you're seeking to vilify is Batman. Go ahead. Make fun of Batman. Feel cool now?

CR - I think you got it backwards. By diversity, they mean hiring good and BAD guys. Back ground checks, drug tests, immigration status, or prior convictions don't matter anymore. Damn, I want a job in Time Warner...

Hawkgirl? I’d do her.

(Shit. Just broke my own anon rule.)

as the anonymous nerd who posted the racial breakdown of the JLU earlier, I'd like to add two things: 1) that should read "Ubermensch" and 2) I was actually writing that from the Warner's lot at the time. Care to guess which building? Here's a hint. You can hear the "Lowrider" theme floating around on taping days.
