College Professor Declares 'Black' Spider-Man Racist Because He's Dating a White Girl
Only a woke college professor can take a movie not only staring a half black/half Hispanic Spider-Man but introduce him to a wider audience and declare the movie racist. That's right. Miles Morales is problematic. At least, according to Texas Tech college professor Bryan K. Hotchkins. An h/t to the young squires at Campus Reform for this one.
First, the source material. We are talking about the 2018 film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE - Official Trailer (HD) youtu.be
Miles Morales was first introduced in comics in 2011, as the Spider-Man from a different universe. Different from the Peter Parker Spider-Man we grew up on. At some point over the last ten years, all the universes combined. Peter Parker and Miles Morales are friends. Into the Spider-Verse was the film version of that, with Morales being the main protagonist and the movie telling Morales' origin story.
Hutchings tells Texas Tech’s “Humanities Now” that the movie is problematic. It's also "anti-black" and projects "expectations of whiteness."
"When there’s finally a Spider-Man who is Black and Latinx..."
Miles Morales is black and Latino.
"...he is relegated to sharing a responsibility and the glory of protecting his city — while in every other Spider-Verse, there is a single super Spider-Hero."
The entire point of the movie was there being a Spider-Man in every universe, all winding up in the same universe. It was a part of the Miles Morales origin story. In every hero's origin story, they have someone teaching them to be a hero. Luke Skywalker had Ben Kenobi. Bilbo had Gandolf. Miles had Peter, Gwen, and Nicholas Cage.
"'His budding love interest, Gwen, is a blond-haired, blue-eyed white girl,' the professor noted. 'As it pertains to the presence of a young black woman, there is not a single character who fits the category.'"
Seems pretty racist you think Miles can't love who he loves. But to be fair, Woke and Racist are BFF.
The dumbest part is Hotchkin's claim Morales doubting his ability to save the day was somehow tied into an "expectation of whiteness." Dude. In literally every hero origin story in the history of hero origin stories, the hero doubts his ability to be a hero. It's a key part of his hero's journey. All except Captain America, but Cap was weird.
I get the feeling the professor forgot he had a podcast coming up and needed something to call racist. He saw the graphic novel for Spider-Verse on the coffee table and figured "sure, why not."
