By Dena Leichnitz The push to re-invent comic book superheroes and Wonder Woman The Left has continually tried to “turn” everyone gay by outing historical figures, whether there is evidence to support it or merely innuendo. Having incorporated that is a tactic in GLBTQ politics, it probably comes as no surprise that there is a concerted effort to “reboot” entertainment  icons including in the world of comics –  particularly action figures.

Victor Mlotshwa, victim of attempted murder by two South African farmers, speaks to reporters after the trial

By Dena Leichnitz The South Africa attempted murder, “coffin case”. While America seems to be reeling with its own racial divisions as of late, there seems to be real racial tensions taking place around the world.

Many in the Black community felt she was not Black enough to represent the entirety of the Black community.  They said she was too light. She is mixed with Black and White.  As someone who is also mixed with Black and White, I thought I would look at both sides of the issue. She is too light to be considered Black.
