Just had to post this hilariousness…
So this morning we had this great conversation about Green Lantern at work. Went pretty much like:
Chris: So I had to just clear some stuff about Green Lantern.
Me: Like what?
Chris: Like whether he’s black or white.
Me: He’s always black, except for when they make him white.
Chris: Actually, he was white first. Then he was black.
Me: Oh yeah, ’cause they’re a group. Funny though, because my brother was basically always like “Green Lantern was a black man, and don’t you forget it!”
Me: I guess that he’s like a part of Black History or something. You know? In February, we honor Martin Luther King, Rose Parks and Green Lantern.
Chris: Like he was chillin’ with Malcolm X.
Me: LMAO! Pretty much.
Chris: I’m just imagining one of those 12 minute blurbs at the end of a TV show where they go, “This week in Black Heroes, we honor Sojourner Truth. Next week, we’ll honor the Green Lantern.” You know, it would have been great to have the Green Lantern during the civil rights movement.
Chris: It would have gone a lot faster.
