    Hi. I'm a cartoonist and writer and as an African American I've always kind of been a little curious about this. Cartoonists and animators often create "furries" (anthropomorphic animal characters) and other anthropomorphic characters, and often use them to stand in for humans. Many times they use such characters to represent different cultures (Speedy Gonzales, Scrooge McDuck, Pepe Le Pew, etc,) How come we don't see more "Black" furries in cartoons and comics and other media? Decades ago, toons and comics USED to be very racist- they didn't think too highly of Blacks and other people of color. Look at the crows from Dumbo. That's changed. More recently, Ducktales and Darkwing Duck both had a duck character who as an Oprah Winfrey caricature. There was a "Black" cat character named M.C. Skat Kat who appeared in videos with Paula Abdul. In The Looney Tunes Show Bugs Bunny had a "Black" rabbit friend named Rodney Rabbit. I assume the little talking goldfish in the Gumball cartoons is MEANT to be African American. Will Smith was the main character in "Shark Tales"- the fish even looked like him. Again, if cartoonists and animators want to use furries to represent people, how come we don't see more BLACK ones? Are they "afraid" of offending people? If not, that just comes across as being very RACIST or CULTURALLY-BIASED. It's like these people are assuming Blacks, don't watch cartoons or read comics, or that a VERY FEW of them do. Please help- thank you.

There were references to 9/11 in Back To The Future: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1ULjJ3E... Were the Freemasons and the Illuminati involved in this programming? Again, how COULD non-Christians predict or allude to 9/11 DECADES before the 9/11 attacks even happened? Why the 911 imagery and symbolism? Why was the number "911" showing up in films and other media in some form or fashion before the attacks happened? Why were some people making jokes about the towers being attacked by terrorists before the attacks happened? Were the twin towers just easy targets for terrorist attacks or for vandalism of some kind, because they were the largest skyscrapers in NY? Did people just simply envision the twin towers being attacked or vandalized or destroyed in some form or fashion as a joke? I am just curious about this. Please help- thank you.

I would have wanted to see a Super Q-Bert video game made, and a lot more Q-Bert sequels made. The original Q-Bert had been available for consoles and PCs. in the '80s. There was a Q-Bert 3 which came out in the '90s and a handful of Q-Bert PC games made after. There was a Q-Bert's Quest pinball game made in the '80s. There was a Pac-Land video game made based on the old Pac-Man cartoon from the '80s. (Pac-Land is where the cartoon took place.) How come they didn't make a game based on the old '80s Q-Bert cartoon? That probably would have taken off. They could have called it "Q-Burg" (which is where the cartoon took place) or something like that. How come we didn't see more Q-Bert merch back in the '80s? They should have made a Q-Bert breakfast cereal. If I was one of the people at Gottlieb behind the Q-Bert games in charge of marketing, merchandising and liscensing I would have milked this cash cow for all it was work. I am just curious- please help. Thank you.

    Hi. I'm an African American and a Christian, and I am curious about this. I know originally, the Mormons were biased against African Americans and against them joining their group. Years ago, when Dick Cavett had a late-night TV talk show, he called out Donnie and Marie Osmond, who were guests on his show in one episode, about the Mormons not letting African Americans into Brigham Young University, which is a Mormon college. Someone, after watching the show, contacted the government about this, and the government threatened to cut BYU's federal funding if the school continued to not allow Blacks into their school. After that, the head of BYU came out publicly announcing BYU would let Blacks enroll in their school. This was back in the '70s. About two decades ago, my mother fell and slipped on some ice outside of a Marriott hotel in NY somewhere. She was going to sue the hotel and was planning to take the people who were managering that hotel to court, but my pastor at the time foresaw a sniper shooting her in the head in a vision, had she's gone to court, so didn't go to court and the case was dropped. My mother didn't know at the time that the Marriott hotels were owned by the Mormons. These days, the Mormons allow African Americans to join their group. I have met a Black Mormon recently in public. Why were the Mormons originally biased against African Americans and against them joining their group? Please help- thank you.

When Grey Hulk wants to keep a low profile, he dons a suit, hat and tie, and dress shoes, and assumes the "Mr. Fixit" persona. This is supposed to be his "disguise". Why can't Grey Hulk just revert back to Banner and THEN don a disguise so that people won't recognize him? Is Banner too cowardly or too lazy or too weak to do that? Is Grey Hulk smarter than Banner? Are people supposed to just believe "Mr. Fixit" is just some big muscular man, with unrealistic bodily proportions, in a suit? People aren't supposed to notice or question WHY he has grey skin? No one supposed to believe he's a monster? Is this supposed to feed into the audience's "suspension of disbelief"? How do people in the Marvel Universe not realize Mr. Fixit and Grey Hulk are one and the same? When The Thing and the Ninja Turtles want to keep low profiles, they just don trench coats and fedoras. This makes no sense either. People could clearly see they aren't human if they took good looks at them while they were in disguise. In American Dad, most people do not question WHY Roger has grey skin and no nose when he assumes human personas. It WOULD make more sense for Grey Hulk to revert back to Banner and THEN don a disguise, or put on a prosthetic mask and conceal his hands when he's Grey Hulk to help keep a low profile. I am just curious. Please help- thank you.

    I recently learned of the news here: https://movieweb.com/stan-lee-retires-si... https://screenrant.com/stan-lee-signings... To me, I don't really care. I was never really a big Marvel fan, or comics fan in general- that doesn't bother me any. If I had met Mr. Lee in person I wouldn't have tried to manipulate him to sign anything, whether he had any health concerns or not. Folks were likely trying to exploit him- they probably thought if he signed any Marvel books or any Marvel-related memorabilia or paraphernalia those items would go up in value, and then they'd probably try to sell them at auctions or on sites like Ebay. The man is 95- it's been stated he doesn't have the energy to sign 100's to 1000's of items a day like he used to. He has health concerns and he's been caught up in scandals earlier this year. His personal caregiver wants him to take it easy and he wants to fulfill Mr. Lee's requests. I don't blame Lee for retiring- that was a WISE decision. I had a Spider-Man poster and one Superman one as a youngster, but they were thrown out. I never thought to get Lee to sign the Spider-Man one, and I certainly wouldn't have tried to force him to sign it. Had I kept those posters I probably would've taken them to an appraiser or gone on a show like Antiques' Roadshow to find out how much they were worth. I am a Christian- I am praying for Lee. How do you feel about his decision to retire? Please help- thank you.
