As a black man I’d be pretty angry. Why do white people have to virtue signal for us so damn much? Black people like characters for their traits, style, attitude, etc, and NOT just because of the color of their skin. Changing an established white character black is offensive and has the exact opposite affect of what you people think it has.

Look, diversity is a good thing, but forced diversity is bulls***. Spider-Man is diversity done right. He’s my favorite superhero, but instead of changing Peter Parker black, they created a brand new Spider-Man with his own unique style, and it’s awesome.

Changing Ken black would be a slap in the face to black people because one; you’re destroying his identity and two; we know it’s not coming from an honest place and is instead just more bs virtue signaling to try and win brownie points. And for those of you who are like, “Whatever, changing his skin color doesn’t bother me!”, you simply aren’t a big enough fan of the character if you ain’t bothered at least a little. Tired of the fakeness.

Hated it in Fantastic Four, hate it in the Little Mermaid, would hate race swapping in Street Fighter.

If you want to have a main character be black, that's fine - do so. But dont race swap an existing white character. Elevate a minor black character to a main character or create a completely new black character. Both are acceptable. But skin color should stay the same as the source material.

Why?

Because its the source material. That's what people know and recognise the characters as. A skin color is as important as their costume color in terms of familiarity and recognisabikity.
