 Well, isn't that just like a woman.

Earth goddess, X-men Leader, Morlock champion, rebel punk, and master thief......but we all know what really matters.

Please , let that character be a skrull. I call on the goddess of comics and the saint of fangirls- let that character be a skrull...

Maybe this issue is specific to Storm, and not all black women
[I hope this isn't too late to comment on.]

I vaguely remember a trade paperback comic with Byrne's work on the X-Men, when Kitty Pryde, Dazzler, and the Hellfire Club were first introduced. (And when Jean/Phoenix started acting bad, by changing Mr. Pryde's mind.) Kitty and Ororo were talking in a restaurant, and Kitty was inquiring about Ororo's hair and eyes. The facts that Ororo has white hair, straight hair, and blue eyes are unusual for black women; I guess that she has them because she's a mutant. So she gets questions that are a variant of what black women get, because of her unique situation. It gets worse for her because of the higher chance that her hair and eyes would be considered fake.
