    Honestly, I can see right away he was just pointing out the absurdity of calling a person of African descendents on Earth as African Americans (or Canadians or from the Caribbean) on Eternia. Heck, the fact that Eternia is a planet and not a continent, maybe it would have been ok if he said African Earthlings instead...lol. And sure, maybe it is ok to say Black or White Eternian's when it comes to to the Caucasian and Afrocentric humans on Eternia, but if you're gonna start using color, are we suppose to call Jitsu and and Ninjor as Yellow? Should we do like the Wu Tang and call Rio Blast Butter Pecan (scooped in my Ice Cream truck, who tears it up) This all coming from a black man born and raised in Canada with parents from the Caribbean (Grenada), so I am not African American, but Grenadian-Canadian (don't you just love that rhyme scheme? lol) In the end, let's just be happy it wasn't Stratos that got the PC nightmare of race change lol

    I wasn't aware that non-registered people couldn't see them.

    I've added all the blog links from He-Man.org to the front of the thread.

    Ha ha. I actually had no problem with Stratos being black, though I know that wouldn't work and TG lightly touched on it. As you know, "white" and "black" are culturally accepted names for race in this country. We'll hear those names on TV and read them in print. Yellow, brown, orange, pink, and polka dot are not. And if it ever becomes culturally insensitive to use the terms "black" and "white" then we'll stop using it. And if African American and Black are synonymous terms, which they are in most circles, then using African American is not absurd in connection with Eternia. When Mattel said they wanted an African American on Eternia, everyone and their mama knew what they were talking about. Including TG. If they said they wanted a Native American we know what they'd be asking for and that character wouldn't have yellow skin. It's communication 101. We use terms people can connect with and relate to even if it technically is not accurate. TG is a "cool" guy. You know what that means. It doesn't mean he's cold. That's why the African Americans "(on Eternia?)" remark is so unnecessary. Was there a human being on Earth that actually wondered aloud if the fictional planet of Eternia had Africans or Americans? No! So why bring it up? Totally unnecessary
