Bilal Asselah (Nightrunner) from Clichy-Sous-Bois; comes from a violent protestation neighbourhood just to begin with. But what really shakes the French society is 'cause the guy is a Sunni Muslim. And France (Real country, not a comic script) got pissed demanding a real French dude to the role of "Le chevalier noir".
You can think: "Fuck you France, be adult" and stuff. But let's think together: for South America he chooses a dude from Argentina "Le Gaucho". It is pretty ok for me. 'Cause you know... South America as a whole is pretty huge, no problem. Now if he chooses an Argentinian to be a Batman only in Brazil I would be disappointed at all.
Yeah, very small feeling, just disappointment. If you live in Argentina and are reading this, please, no hard feelings... I just don't have feelings for you guys at all - and I know it is reciprocate. This is a cultural stuff, most of it about football and skin colour - (yes it is, don't come with shit about it... "monkyto" doesn't come for free, ok?) You see this? It is a stupid thing between Brazil and Argentina and I alone can start a fight about this kind of concept - and to whom it may concern?
Can you imagine when it influences your faith, value, principles, your right to be free and stuff like that? If they (France) were about to prohibit the use of burqa at schools, what do you think about a Muslim doing justice on Paris streets?
So DC makes a huge mistake on doing this - or maybe it will be a HUGE comic book story about integration and respect... who knows. Maybe something like Rocky 4 (without the "American Rules stuff", but the message at all).
Let's bet DC knows what they are doing. But it a bet of risk.Cause it is ok to take a picture of a house on fire, but it is not wise to throw more wood in it just to make the picture more dramatic.
