Hale penned the graphic novels Diana and Nubia: Princesses of the Amazons and Diana: Princess of the Amazons for DC and The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: Squirrel Meets World and The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: 2 Fuzzy 2 Furious for Marvel.

Hale made her comments about Utah in a recent sit down with Mistborn novelist Brandon Sanderson as the two discussed the best food in Utah.

After Sanderson shared his thoughts on why he believes Utah food is better than Nebraska, at around the 3:38 mark Hale opined that Utah was too white.

She said, “For being a state that’s 83% white, which is just so — it’s just too white. But we do have a lot of international foods here for all of that.”

Hale’s comments are repugnant. There is nothing wrong with being born white and there is nothing wrong with the state of Utah having a high density of people being white. The state of Utah is not “too white.”

Nevertheless, Hale couldn’t even get her facts right. According to the United Census Bureau, Utah’s population demographics show the state is 77.2% “white alone, not Hispanic or Latino.” If you look at the “white alone” demographic it’s at 90.3%.

Hale’s comments do not seem to be out of character for her. A brief look at her Twitter feed shows similar comments.

In March 2020, she tweeted, “White men in this country for a couple hundred years: We will do everything! In fact we will make it illegal for women or non-white men to vote or have any authority whatsoever! It’s all us! Also white men: You can’t blame everything bad that happened on white men!”

Hale also defamed Kyle Rittenhouse, who defended himself when he was repeatedly attacked by violent criminals in Wisconsin. She described him as a “white supremacy-radicalized boy.”

She tweeted in September 2020, “A white supremacy-radicalized boy who went to another town with people-hunting guns with the intent to use them and is charged with murdering two humans vs. a girl who pleads with people to protect the earth? GOP? This is who you want to be?”

Hale is also a supporter of Black Lives Matter. At the end of May 2020, she tweeted, “Lay the batons down. Throw out the paramilitary gear. Tanks don’t belong in our streets. There is horrific injustice. Acknowledge it. Listen. Walk behind the BLM leaders. Walk beside your community. This will take work. Don’t suppress. Support.”

Hale still has the hashtag BLM in her profile to this day as well.

For those unfamiliar with Black Lives Matter, the organization was founded by self-proclaimed Marxists. One of the organization’s founders Patrisse Cullors stated, ““The first thing, I think, is that we actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia, in particular are trained organizers.”

“We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories. And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that can be utilized by many, many black folk.”

The Black Lives Matter organization also made it clear that they have a goal “to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folks, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.”

They also want to “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.”
