Black History Month Interlude

Starring C. Thomas Howell as Robin the Teen Wonder.

Oh, you're right, Robin; it's racist to hire black people. Better to hire white servants rather than have people think you're racists; as for the black people, well, they should just leave the ghetto and have multibillionaires adopt them.

I don't know what's worse, the fact that you made a "Soul Man" reference or the fact that I got it... moving on, you notice that he colors his arms and legs too? Around who does he plan on taking off his pants ?

Nice, Robin. Because it's totally not racist to call your disguise "Black Like Me."

Now he's just gotta get Rae Dawn Chong to fall in love with him...

The pictured sequence was taken from Batman #240, 1972. If you'd like to read the whole story, click on my name for a link to my current eBay auctions!

Obviously, Robin had to color his legs--one never knows when one might meet his next multi-millionaire "daddy"...

Just when I thought 70s DC couldn't have been any more patronizing about race relations, you gotta go bring this up.
