Stan Lee a racist?

Will Smith Captain America

Leave it to an old white guy to say something as racist as Stan Lee did in a recent interview with Moviefone.   The Marvel Comics chairman shot down the rumor that Will Smith will play Captain America,  “I would love us to do something with Will Smith, but I don’t know that he’s Captain America. That would be a long shot. It would be a real leap to make Captain America black … then again, I don’t know. It might be a really smart thing. If Barack Obama becomes President who knows … suddenly a lot of our characters will be black!”

Stan Lee the Racist

OMG, Grandpa!  WTF?  Do you even know “America?”   Get a clue, you old bat!

    You see, He was white. That’s something you just cant change.

    Not racist at all.

    I don’t think Stan Lee is racist at all maybe a tad ignorant but not racist, he was just having a playful joke. I mean Stan Lee’s x-men comics in the 60’s opposed racial prejudice. As for Will Smith as Captain America I don’t think it would work because the idea of a black person representing America in th 40’s is unrealistic.

    Thanks all,

    The objection to Will Smith being Captain America is not racist. His comment about President Obama is racist.
