Vitamin Pb: If he's going to wear that costume he needs to work out. Dude looks like a string bean.
Also he head looks Photoshopped on.

And "did it for a TV show" makes me go "meh".



He needs to be Liefelded

FTA: 3) If you stereotype people, then you have fallen victim of the malady itself. To all the people who have given me advice to stay away from white Republican places like Jersey, Florida, Texas and the South, let me say this. If I had stereotyped the world the way it may see me in my turban and beard, I would never have  walked out as Captain America. Stop projecting your insecurities. There are many good people all over America despite the political labels we wear. Intolerant asses reside all over the place. New York has its fair share.


Came here to post this, saw it was already done. Left with hope for humanity.

Are you a professional moron or just a talented idiot? Down here in my part of Texas, he'd get people staring and asking him about it. Of course, since you're just an ignorant, bigoted douchebag, you're too stupid and narrow-minded to consider the possibility that the loudest and most obnoxious inhabitants of an area don't necessarily represent the whole.

cubic_spleen: Lady J: Facetious_Speciest: Well, not to be all dirty furriner immigrant spawn or anything, but I kinda think a Sikh in a Captain America outfit is quintessentially what America is supposed to be about. The good parts, anyway.

indeed.

one day we'll all be a uniform delicious caramel MOCHA colour, and that day we'll turn our attentions to curing cancer and suchlike

FTFY, unwashed heathen.


Some of us like a little caramel with our mocha...

And that's the problem.

Just so we're being clear, that's bad. Being unwilling to consider points of view different than your own, including things like "what does it mean to be patriotic?" and meeting those differing points of view with deadly force, should not be a point of pride.

It isn't for the most part.  80% of the South is still wrongfully judged by the example of the 20% of it's population that remains woefully ignorant and stuck in the past.  I am from Tennessee and have no problem with other peoples ethnicity, religion, country of origin, or traditions.  Different points of view make for interesting conversations and enlightening experiences.

Why is the 80% letting the 20% suppress voting rights, promote creationism, and oppose a woman's right to her own body, among other things?

It's readily apparent by your lumping me in with your perception of everyone else in the South that there is nothing I can say that will change your mind and your just spoiling for a fight.  Pick it with someone else.  I'm not going to be castigated for the words or actions of whomever it was that slighted you either recently or in the past.


I think that's a little unfair. He made a fair point since some of those things he mentioned do typically enjoy widespread popularity among southern states. There's actual data to back that up. Creationism and anti-abortion views are certainly shared by much more than 20% of the population in many southern states, for instance.

I lived in the south myself for years (still technically do) and many of the stereotypes of southerners existed in significant numbers. Fark, there was a damn KKK rally in the town square of my Florida town while I was there and all sorts of folks would just assume since I was white like them that I was racist like them too. It was unsettling how many people would casually make some racist statement in front of me, just assuming that since I was white I wouldn't challenge it. Racism was pervasive and far too socially acceptable in my experience.

Maybe in Virgina, but he'd be welcome right here in Austin. He'd fit right in, trust that.

As a native Virginian, I would thank you kindly to not stereotype me


My apologies to you, and I sincerely hope I have not been the cause of any vapors, clutched pearls, or an unfortunate spilled mint julep.
