To her son regarding the Jon Stewart (BLACK Green Lantern) action figure he wanted to get...


One like what? Instead she bought him a Kyle Rayner (WHITE Green Lantern) action figure. Oh.

  1. But the joke is on her, because Kyle is HISPANIC! Sort of! Maybe!

    ...I hate people.

  2. Imagine if she had bought him a Connor Hawke action figure instead.

  5. It's NOT what it looks like! They're just VERY opposed to teaching children it's alright to own African-Americans!

    ...owning Whitey-Lantern is restitution, or something.

  6. While I was working at a comics shop, this drunk man came in. My black coworker was helping him, and then came over, obviously upset, and asked me to help him instead. So I went over and asked what he needed. The drunk said to me, "Hey! You got any Green Lantern. But I don't want any of that black, big dick Green Lantern. My Green Lantern is white!"

    I pointed him to the dollar comics and walked away.

    He kept on for about 10 minutes while looking through comics.

    He bought about $50 worth of green lantern comics (but none with Jon Stewart).

    /Jon Stewart is my favorite Green Lantern.

  7. Psst... It's "John" with an "h".

    But agreed: fuck people, awesome Green Lantern. I hope they got their son Guy Gardner so that he will grow up to despise them.

  11. This reminds me of when I was a little (white) girl, and I asked my mom to buy me a (black) baby all-gone doll. I apparently insisted that it be the black one. However, my mother is not an asshole, so she let me have it.
