What   is this community about?

This is a ficathon dedicated to celebrating characters of color in comics.

Why?

Because characters of color are awesome. Superheroes are awesome. Combining them is pretty much the highest level of awesome. It also exists due to my frustration at not finding the types of Yuletide stories I wanted to read in the comics sections.

What's with the name?

The name comes from Ian Sattler's comment about "diversity" in the DCU:

A serious topic came up about how characters who are minorities who happened to be legacy characters like Ryan Choi are killed off so their caucasian counterparts can return and how they feel like they are being cheated or sidelined out of their roles. Sattler took a more serious tone. “It’s so hard for me to be on the other side because it’s not our intention. There is a reason behind it all. We don’t see it that way and strive very hard to have a diverse DCU. I mean, we have green, pink, and blue characters. "
