now why the fuck are all the superfriends white?

the only black superheroes are dumb characters like the falcon, power man and the blank panther. or that stupid japanese guy, sunfire. and, of course, there are no indian superheroes.

Dude, did you not watch Justice League of America as a kid (the cartoon)?

Apachee (sp?) Chief was a super hero. He grew to enormous sizes whenever he said his name? Remember?
 
blade was just a secondary spider-man character until they decided to make that wesley snipes movie.

iron man was never really black. billionaire white boy tony stark got his black butler, james rhodes, to fill in as iron man for awhile. then, as expected, rhodes got addicted to crack or something and the big white hero had to come save the day.

(as for panthro, he was a cat - he wasn't black.)

if you want to get really specific, i suppose there are some other non-white superheroes like bishop, steel and shang-chi (the master of kung fu). but they are few and far between and they usually all suck.

Well being that they have 30 times the population of Canada. And arround 10x the number of PhD graduates they'd flood our market.

There are more engineers in Russia than auto workers in Canada. On average the Canadian auto worker makes twice what the russian engineer makes. If we allowed their degrees to hold merit when they imigrate here we might as well shut down all of our engineering programs for the next decade.

With the sheer amount of medical doctors from India we could replace every doctor in Canada with one at half price and still have a line up at the border. We don't accept the degrees because it would crush or education system by its sheer size. We accept the degrees from western europe and from the US because other than a few specialists they don't send us to many.

Many Indian degrees have no value here because they would destroy or supply and demand curves if they did.

my point had nothing to do with the validity of foreign degrees. i was simply stating that most immigrants possess degrees because canada will only accept people that they deem as able to contribute to our society.
