Fighting for Truth, Justice and the Jedi Way

I found the wonderful site "The Hero Factory" over at Nick's Bytes and spent a delightful five minutes creating my hero avatar. Even in my prime, I never looked like this, but---who cares.

I remember when I was a kid and Superman fought for "truth, justice and the American way." I actually believed that those three things went together back then.

Love it!

To be fair, no one in their prime looks like a comic book character. ;-)

Dada said...

Yes, but how about "just approaching their prime?" (Great look, bloggero!)

Ruth Hull Chatlien said...

I love your superhero look.

Heavily Babe oriented, I guess it's mostly for men.
Gender neutral, and certainly no less important to me is my poetry on Single Swingle:

Sue J: Hey, thanks.

Randal, yeah, and that's probably a good thing.

Dada, LOL.

Ruth--g'wan, YOU do one!

eProf, be my VP for T & J?

Kraxpelax: you got that babe thing right. I'm a knitting granny. This avatar is as racy as I get.

I'm glad that you never looked like that. Those are some skinny minnie quads.

At what point did you lose your innocence about the American Way? I think for me, it was Vietnam.

Jan said...

I wondered about this on Facebook--so I'm glad you told us about it here. Pretty amazing.

Big Apple became Clockwork Orange

When Everybody becomes a Devil of Evil.

Some Hispanics and a New York City Police officer attacked a Black Man without cause - Ugly slurs, "Go to Africa", Baseball bats - Racism and Sadism

Daryl Jackson a defenseless Black Man, attacked by Hispanics
Hispanics with baseball bats sent him to the Hospital ( see photo )

New York City - See the NewsDay Video of a Witness speaking up
The Big Apple became the Clockwork Orange

Thanks to the Complicit Complacency of the Authorities

We have reported several times Ugly Racism and attacks from Hispanics to Innocent Black People, like when the 14 year old Girl Cheryl Green was killed in Los Angeles by a Hispanic.

I receive lots of angry and hate comments against RACIALITY.COM implying that this Blog only rants against Whites. But sometimes we also signal Racist acts of Latinos or Blacks.

A Society that is sick and permeated by Racism turns the members of a Race that has been a victim into Haters, Racists and finally Victimizers.

Carol, good for you! I was under a rock for Vietnam. Central America opened my eyes.

Jan, dare you to change your profile pic! (kidding!)

Vicente, you are a super hero in the way you document hate crimes.

Jan said...

I'd change my profile pic if someone would ever take a picture of me! That only happened because I was in Canada and my cousin took it.

Border Explorer said...

Oh, Jan, I meant I dare you to put up a Super Hero(!); I wasn't commenting on your consistency of photo [ ;-) ]...but seriously, I'm in the same boat regarding photos. I had to take my Border Explorer photo MYSELF: you know, the hold-the-camera-out-pointed-at-yourself trick! But someone took my photo today, so I just changed my Facebook shot. See you there!

Jan said...

Well, Billie, you got me to change. It's a silly picture (no super hero!) of me with white hair, even though that's just starting.

that was so fun, I'll put it up just so you can see "The Enflamed Inferno" ... waaahhhh ...
