Freckle-faced [comic book character] Archie will meet his demise when he intervenes in an assassination attempt on senator Kevin Keller, Archie Comics' first openly gay character, who's pushing for more gun control in Riverdale. Archie's death, which was first announced in April, will mark the conclusion of the "Life with Archie" series.Cue the usual suspects;
The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and several Archie fans praised Archie Comics' decision to have the character sacrifice himself to save Kevin....We wonder what the GLAAD thought of ABC's paean to homophobe Rachel Jeantel by George Stephanopolous last Sunday on This Week? They managed to pass over in silence Jeantel's testimony in the Zimmerman trial where she twice used the word 'pervert' to describe Zimmerman (and also called him a rapist).
Nor did she make any apologies for her friend Trayvon Robinson's homophobic attack (albeit mistaken) on Zimmerman. He assaulted Zimmerman, who was peacefully standing on a sidewalk in his neighborhood waiting for a policeman he'd summoned, because, in Jeantel's words (on Piers Morgan's CNN talk show);
For every boy, every man who isn't that kind of way, see a grown man following them, would they be creep out?For Rachel, Zimmerman should have expected what happened to him;
[The jury] they're white...they don't understand...it's just bash, bash [gestures]....Trust me, the area I live, that's not bashing. That's just called whuppass. You got your ass whupped.For being gay.
Ironic that it was a gun that saved Zimmerman from possibly being killed in the assault by Jeantel's boyfriend.
