    Yes, yes they did.

    Lemon's a real lousy interviewer. He tried to control the conversation, and Talib wouldn't let him.

    I'm not sure I'm entirely following you here. So was Hurricane Katrina different because it happened in New Orleans?

    I think someone on CBR mentioned DareDevil did a Trayvon Martin comic....idk i don't read Daredevil and I don't really recall anyone bringing it up at the time or it making news, but just another example.

    I haven't heard that many incomplete sentences and interruptions since I watched The View.

    I will not be returning to Ferguson
    I had been on the ground helping Al Jazeera America** cover the protests and unrest in Ferguson, Mo., since this all started last week. After what I saw last night, I will not be returning. The behavior and number of journalists there is so appalling, that I cannot in good conscience continue to be a part of the spectacle.

    **A clarification edit: I am not a full-time employee of any Al Jazeera branch or network. I am a freelance journalist who contributes to several media platforms.

    Things I’ve seen:

    -Cameramen yelling at residents in public meetings for standing in way of their cameras

    -Cameramen yelling at community leaders for stepping away from podium microphones to better talk to residents

    -TV crews making small talk and laughing at the spot where Mike Brown was killed, as residents prayed, mourned

    -A TV crew of a to-be-left-unnamed major cable network taking pieces out of a Ferguson business retaining wall to weigh down their tent

    -Another major TV network renting out a gated parking lot for their one camera, not letting people in. Safely reporting the news on the other side of a tall fence.

    -Journalists making the story about them

    -National news correspondents glossing over the context and depth of this story, focusing instead on the sexy images of tear gas, rubber bullets, etc.

    -One reporter who, last night, said he came to Ferguson as a “networking opportunity.” He later asked me to take a picture of him with Anderson Cooper.

    The answer is a smokescreen for their uncomfortability for that specific topic and/or the lack of trust in Marvel or DC to handle it properly. That's all.
    I agree. To say nothing of the fact that there's several characters that were clearly created to symbolize certain ideas. Heck, during WW2 you had superheroes actively fighting the war and telling folks to buy war bonds. Fans back then weren't going, "I don't want real world issues in my comics."
