Morpheus is in the house! (or the planet)...Pedro Parquero resurrected! (well, kinda'): Mestizaje raises its head in current comic books and film

Follow this link here to a report from Newsarama on Africano actor Lawrence Fishburne's upcoming role as the fairly caucasoidal (and double entendre-d) Perry White in director Zack Snyder's forthcoming film release Superman—Man of Steel.

And this link here to an honest Newsarama essay on race, culture, and Marvel Comics' new Spiderman—a half-Ethiopian, half-Mexican teenager by the name of Miles Morales ("my mestizaje sense is tingling").
