Super Natural


I recently came across a kickstarter that I had to share, its a comic book called Super Natural. The creator Marcus Williams is looking for $4,500 to get the project out there.

Who is Super Natural? Super Natural is a superhero character I created to be used as a supporting pivotal character in Anthony Piper’s superhero parody entitled “Trill League“. In the world Anthony created, she sticks out like a sore thumb in comparison to the other character’s personalities. This was intentional as she is designed to be a vehicle of “pseudo normality” that readers can anchor to when things get too crazy. Her name refers to her moral stance against portraying herself as anything but a natural black woman. This includes her appearance, her diet and her lifestyle. Super Natural is not from earth, yet she has come to make a home here after some quick transitions into city life. She is immensely powerful and nearly invulnerable to all physical damage, but not immune to the everyday stresses of living in American society.

Black Brazil Today


Note from BW of Brazil: Today’s piece simply re-enforces the analysis and focus of this blog in providing insight into the pulse of Brazil’s black community.

As the testimonies of numerous pieces on this blog show, Brazil’s sophisticated brand of racism made it so that millions of persons of visible African ancestry attempt to deny or avoid assuming an identidade negra (black identity) and living…

The Hidden Truth


U.S. Marine Jason Thomas, 32, appeared at the World Trade Center with a flashlight and a shovel and made the decision to help as many people as he could.

He ended up unearthing a pair of police officers who had been buried beneath 20 feet of debris, then disappeared.

No one knew of his identity until he was finally unmasked four years later.

Ironically, Thomas was portrayed in the 2006 film “World Trade” as a White man.

The filmmakers later apologized for their inaccuracy, but Thomas just laughed it off by saying that he didn’t want to “shed any negativity on what they were trying to show.”
