    October 5, 2012 3:46 pm @grandturk...no, I don't think they were saying "we don't need HIS kind of minority because we have other minorities", I think it was more a case of "we don't think he should be added just BECAUSE he's a minority, which Gyrich basically admitted was the case. The Avengers were trying to say they didn't need any "help" to be inclusive, because they already were! If they thought the Falcon's skills would have best complimented the team, there's NO evidence to suggest they would have cared what race, sex, hell, even species he was.

    October 4, 2012 9:12 pm Not sure if anyone posting has read the original full story, but the Avengers were reacting to the enforced inclusion of the Falcon on the team, by government agent Gyrich. Falc wasn't included because the government thought he was the best possible addition in terms of power, skills, etc., but rather simply to fulfill a racial quota. The Avengers' point was that they already HAD minorities on the team, that in fact, it was made up almost entirely of them, and that the inclusion of the Falcon was an example of 'political correctness' that was done only for political, not strategic, reasons. I can hardly imagine any of them were against the Falcon BECAUSE he was a minority. Quicksilver is a mutant, hunted, persecuted and feared his whole life, Iron Man was friends and co-workers with Jim Rhodes, and Cap was the Falcon's PARTNER, for Heaven's sake! Just putting things in context.

    PLEASE don't put those two observations on an equal footing.  The first is the entire meaning of the holiday.  The second is just what it's degenerated into.  Nothing against having fun, but more emphasis on the solemnity and less on the "whoo hoo!" would really be welcome.
