Reminds me of the part played by Fia Porter in Spike Lee's Malcolm X.

Young white coed with long blond hair to the well-known and successful Malcolm X:

"Well, I think racism is just terrible, and I want to help you. What can _I_ do?"

Malcolm/Denzel Washington:

"Nothing. Excuse me."

And walks away with his group of black male friends.

While I've seen this before, it has renewed humor because they were allegedly considering Beyonce for the Lois Lane role in the new, beleagured Superman movie.

So, if I follow the text of the synopsis correctly, a machine to turn white people into black people was invented by a Kryptonian named "Dahr-Nel".

Just thought I'd point that out.

Damn, she was hot when she was a black chick.

Damn, she was hot when she was a black chick.

I noticed she had "white" , i.e. processed, hair. Why no super-bad, 1960's Angela Davis 'fro, I wonder?

Scott Shaw! has been covering gems like this in his Oddball Comics column at Comic Book Resources for years now. I'm guessing he's written about this one, but the search function at CBR is erroring.

In an ideal world there'd have been some white Lois/black Lois girl on girl action, but we have to live in this world...

I'm with jonmc... where's the "Lois Lane... 'I am Bi-Curious'"?

Great link! Does anyone know when this comic came out?

"Superman and the Sneetches!" They missed a great crossover opportunity with Doc Seuss here.
