The net worth of the average black household in the United States is $6,314, compared with $110,500 for the average white household, according to 2011 census data. The gap has worsened in the last decade, and the United States now has a greater wealth gap by race than South Africa did during apartheid. (Whites in America on average own almost 18 times as much as blacks; in South Africa in 1970, the ratio was about 15 times.)

i couldnt remember the exact words by heart but. everything they said chimed in my head like a song i’d heard a long time ago. it was almost rhythmic, buried deep in my memory. it was probably the most bizarre way ive ever remembered something.

The best part of reading old comics as single issues is far and away the letters sections; it’s a great reminder that nerds haven’t really changed, but that some conventions of the industry totally have.

Example: I just finished Batman #500 (Part 19 of Knightfall). There are a bunch of letters complaining that Batman was being too grimdark, and that they would NEVER. READ. BATMAN. AGAIN. if Bruce Wayne wasn’t brought back.

Taking naked pictures of yourself does not make you a bad person. People who share them without your permission are bad people.

Another comic I started last night. This one is basically about what it was like being African American in high school, minus the supernatural transformation at the end.
