It is because /lgbt/ draws /pol/ looking like a spic. The family threads on /pol/ reveals that most frequenters there have black blood coursing through their veins. /pol/ very much wants theit board-tan to be a suit wearing caucasian news reporter, but let us be honest, most of them look more like the board-tan in this comic.

the news reporter was created for the news board /new/, check the /char/ page on 4chanhouse. the black suit is /new/ but identifies as /pol/ due to the redirect (also kept because of the tan was known on the board and the majority didn't want him changed). the green suit is the homegrown /pol/ tan, but his first known comic was pretty much his interaction with /mlp/. board tans were unheard of on /new/ (this was during the time that the main group consisted of /a/, /v/, /co/, /tg/, and /x/), so his character was created at a time where the only influences to his character were users purely interested in news and associated content.

The /news/-tan has no affiliation with /pol/. It was always the red shirt nazi guy, often depicted wearing a camuflage pants. It came out of the memes where the board was only represented with a red ball with eyes who had a swastika. Later it became a stickfigure wearing a red swastika shirt, then it became the /pol/-tan we all know. The /news/-tan was adopted in an atempt to save face after /lgbt/ trolled the shit out of /pol/.

>The /news/-tan has no affiliation with /pol/.
Except during the first few years when there was a /new/ redirect to /pol/. That's why the news tan was rebranded as black suit /pol/ to begin with. He's actually suppose to be dead/incognito right now because the redirect had been removed since 2015ish.
I think people wanted black suit to return to being the /news/ board when the board opened up, but I was too late in drawing him and the /news/ tan is now someone else entirely lol
I've just begun killing off black suit in favor of /pol/'s green suit counterpart. Any new drawings of /new/ tan and black suit will be on another site along with my old plans for board tans.
