It isn't just the adding minority characters or minority characters replacing established and popular White Male characters.

Its the writers inserting their political leanings into the books that is the major problem. Look how many we've had refugee stories the last few years [while a "refugee" crisis has been going on in Europe] and look how times Superman narrates "I came to this planet as a refugee." Superman should not be attending Antifa or Black Lives Matter rallies and Batman should not be beating up Police Officers. If the writers wanks to photos of Karl Marx while reading Communist Manifesto that's their business, but it should be kept out of the books.
