race and blacks in comics

Race in comics and the blacks in comics essays were actually quite similar.  It seems the writer is upset with how there is very little black culture in comics, including the writers, illustrators and comic book characters.  The author states that he was the first African American to work for the big comic book companies and that it upsets him that his name is not mentioned.  He also notes that he does not like people to get ahead based on their skin color or ethnicity.  Yet what confuses me about this is that he did nothing spectacular unless it is based on his being the first African American to work at the largest comic book companies.  He talks of not wanting to get ahead based on color and yet he wants to be recognized for being the first of his color to work for D.C. and Marvel comics.  The man in my opinion is a hypocrite
