It’s going to be amusing to see this idiot SJW start trying to deny my heritage. Because, after all, it doesn’t fit the narrative!
Children’s book creator Jed Alexander, who wrote and drew (Mostly) Wordless and Red went after a number of comic book professionals and called them “white supremacists.”
Alexander targeted writer Chuck Dixon, artist Dave Dorman, and creator Ethan Van Sciver on a public Facebook post by Howard Chaykin. Chaykin merely posted the cover to his Image Comics series The Divided States of Hysteria and commented, “I told you last year, but did you listen?”
This post provoked Alexander to label Dixon, Dorman, and Van Sciver “white supremacists.”
He would write:
“There are white supremacists in your industry. They are your peers. I’m talking about: Chuck Dixon, Dave Dorman and Ethan Van Sciver just for starters. Dixon who collaborates with Vox Day, a known white supremacist, on a comic called Alt Hero, an Alt Right superhero. Dorman, who will soon be collaborating with Dixon, and is a supporter of “Comicsgate.” Ethan Van Sciver who has put himself at the center of “comicsgate” a movement that actively harasses and threatens women, people of color and trans people in or related to the comics industry.
It’s easy to say this is none of your business, you know nothing about these people, this has nothing to do with you. But this is your industry. You are known for being outspoken about what matters to you. About racism, about anti-semitism, about right wing extremism. This is your industry and publishers have become quiet enablers. You don’t have to be.
Right now you’re writing a comic about the comics industry. Whether you like it or not, this is a part of that story. You have a voice.“
My response to Jed Alexander on Facebook:
I’m an American Indian, you moron. You could call me a Red Reservationist, but you cannot legitimately call me a white supremacist any more than you can call me the Chief Rabbi of Israel, the President of Nigeria, or the Pope.
I also sent John Trent of Bounding Into Comics a note to clarify my position on these matters and they posted my response as a separate article there.
I read with interest Mr. Alexander’s defamatory statements about me. I hope you will allow me to set the record straight.
- I am not a “white supremacist”. To the contrary, as an American Indian, I wholeheartedly support both the right of free association as well as the right of the American Indian to our segregated, white-free reservations.
- I do not believe in “white nationalism” or “black nationalism” or “yellow nationalism”. To confuse broad racial categories with nations is a serious category error.
- I oppose “white nationalism”, “civic nationalism”, and globalism as forms of imperialism that inevitably lead over time to civil strife and ethnic war.
I do not know Mr. Alexander’s heritage, but the irony of him labeling an American Indian who happens to be the great-grandson of a Mexican revolutionary “a white supremacist” is substantial indeed.
I’m not the only one whose background Alexander obviously did not know. Timothy Lim, as it happens, is of Chinese and Filipino descent. As an astonishingly insightful and good-looking Native American once wrote, SJWs always project.
