 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...

First off, try "non-black" people.

No, I've only seen white people expecting that black characters should be written to cater for them. Most non-white people living in white-dominated cultures such as the U.S. are used to not everything catering to them as has been explained on this very post:


But even the fact that white people demand that non-white people explain white privilege is another example of white people demanding that black people must cater to white people before they even consider beginning to listen.

Secondly, this really has nothing to do with race; we're talking writing mechanics. It's not that Ororo has to cater to non-black people, it's that, as this journal that hosts us has proven non-black people will completely miss the point and misconstrue the scene. We would quite literally NOT be having this conversation if this weren't the case, because this journal entry wouldn't be here.

So if it's not about race, which it clearly is so I don't understand why you're trying to deny it, then why are you talking about white people's reactions seperately? Answer: because it is about race. And if you're talking about this post, which you are, then, as far as I can see, you're talking about white people's reactions differing from the reactions of people of colour (not all of whom are black by the way) so, again, it's obviously about race even according to you in the same paragraph as your attempt to deny that it's about race.
