I must see this!
The New York Times broke news today of a new solo superhero title launching from Marvel early next year — and this one comes as a welcome change of pace for readers who want to see more diversity in their super-books.
Ms Marvel #1, from writer G. Willow Wilson (Cairo) and artist Adrian Alphona (Runaways), introduces the world to the young Muslim woman who takes on the mantle of Ms. Marvel formerly held by Carol Danvers, the current Captain Marvel. The new Ms. Marvel will be the first Muslim character to get her own ongoing solo series at Marvel, one of a growing number of female solo leads, and the only person of color headlining a solo book.
This is AWESOME.

The HUGE amount of money spent on psychiatric drugs for#Lakota foster children was revealed in a report by us last year. Now, #SouthDakota won a marketing fraud lawsuit against the drug companies, who told them to over-prescribe Lakota children! There is still NO oversight, and parents can’t stop the state from over-medicating their children! PETITION: http://lakota.cc/H92BTk Read:http://lakota.cc/HGRbGT

Marvel Comics is bringing Ms. Marvel back as a 16-year-old daughter of Pakistani immigrants living in Jersey City named Kamala Khan
So Ms Marvel is coming back a sister?!
Kenan, SNL, yeah…black women have been ready…for a looong time and still are.
Look at how Urban Outfitters is taking something that has been in our culture for how many decades & calling it “Vintage 90 Linen Dress” They have the nerve to say it was “Made in the U.S.A” & its from the “1990s”. Its incredibly disrespectfully to our culture & heritage for them to sale something & not to get even get an inch of credit or recognition like they came up with concept on their own. I love being EthiopiaN & Habesha & I don’t appreciate our culture getting ripped off!
PLEASE REBLOG THIS! WE NEED TO SEND A MESSAGE TO URBAN OUTFITTERS!
