Black Superheroes *that LEAD*

When I realized I needed to make my own cartoons:

 Black Superheroes *that LEAD*

Me and my 3year old son were watching a Kid Avengers cartoon with *ONE* count em, ONE black guy on the show (in a sidekick role of course) and I asked my son which one was he.

My son picked the leader (a white kid with no super powers) and I asked him why he want to be the black guy and he said:

BECAUSE HE’S NOT THE LEADER… AND HE’S BROWN…

I didn’t even know how to respond to that…

My problem isn’t that those who make are children’s super hero cartoons don’t provide strong black images.  It really isn’t there job too.  Black people as a whole (again I say) have become a race of professional victims, always complaining about what others don’t do for them.  My issue isn’t with those that devalue us but with US OURSELVES.  We fail to provide adequate examples and images that present us in a positive way our even tell our stories sufficiently but we consistently find flaws in the examples others give of their own glory (like I’m doing here).

More and more people are enjoying the storyline and twist of Mama’s Lil Man!

Think about it.  White America isn’t in the business of providing high quality images for black children to have high self esteem.  Too the contrary.  Their mission is to provide high quality images for their own children to have success examples.  They create movies and cartoons for this purpose alone and only after much crying from minorities do they even give us sidekick roles for our children to aspire to.  We can’t even be mad at that.

I challenge myself and other black parents to start being proactive in our efforts to give our children quality images and examples.  It’s really up to us.  Let’s stop complaining and being reactive and get on the offense in securing our kids have high self esteem and pride in their color and features.

Let me know what you think!
