I'm a Romani reader myself and Dick is one of the few *positive* representations of our people in popular culture. It makes me angry when people dismiss us as white, whether through ignorance about our people or through ignorance about Dick's past. Cass and Damian aren't Bruce's only POC children.
Well, it wasn’t much of a smackdown, really. More of a “if you’re gonna troll, do it about something that makes sense and know what you are talking about.” But we’re glad you enjoyed!
LOL,oh, troll. You’re cute. You do understand how this tumblr works, right? People send us secrets, we publish them? We don’t censor them for accuracy or “shit we don’t agree with.”
But since you brought it up:
Dick is canonically Romani. You may wish to do some research:
Please pay attention to the “Historical persecution” “Holocaust” and “Contemporary Issues” sections.
His people sure as hell aren’t treated like they are white.
He is drawn white, yes. So is Connor Hawke. So is Damian. So is Talia. That’s a different issue.
Next time you want to troll, bring us a subject that you know something about.
