Jehad Saftawi, IMEU:

"On July 16, while I was in eastern Gaza City taking photos of the many buildings recently destroyed by Israeli forces, a man approached me and asked if I wanted to enter his home to take photos of the inside.

I accepted his offer and as he showed me around, I learned his name is Khamis Mraish and that his brother, Dr. Riad Mraish, ran a clinic from the home.  As Khamis took me through each corner of the house, he described in detail the damage in every room. Most of the family’s belongings, including Dr. Mraish’s medical equipment, were now ruined, scattered in pieces and covered with debris.

It was horribly sad to witness his pain — and how he so badly wanted to share his story with the world. And the more people I speak with, the more I realize there is this same feeling everywhere. The people in Gaza want, and need, the world to see what they are going through.”

Bomb paid for by American tax dollars. Gotta love the world.

Here’s hoping.

I hate that the transition of Captain America to the Falcon was perceived as a matter of race instead of being part of the story. The female Thor does make sense to me but shows an extreme lack of creativity, I mean naming her Thor? There were female Norse Gods, which is what the Thor series was based upon. But they couldn’t come up with a better name? But seeing as though these moves are probably just Marvel’s attempt at stirring up buzz in order to sell more comic books and merchandise. What minority readers need is good character archetypes, not archetypes that were written by old white men. What minority readers need is a good minority archetype created by a minority writer who can truly encompass the reality of being a minority in America. Where is that creativity? Where is the drive for more of those? It is sad to think that as the industry succombs to more gender/race swapping we may lose the motivation to create new and diverse protagonists for the minority and female readers. That, is a travesty.
