A Nation of Immigrants!

Not to mention that these same (white) folks have committed more terrorism than any minority group. Law and order starts at home, especially if your home is espousing hatred, racism, and misogyny.

Surveying Racism

An ironic twist in the scandal rocking Virginia governor Ralph Northam coming from a new poll. Overall, Virginians are deadlocked, with 47% saying that he should step down as governor, and 47% saying he should not (6% with no opinion). However, while 48% of whites say that Northam should resign, among blacks, only 37% want […]

The Right to be Offended?

I fully expect I’m going to get a bunch of pushback on this one. I welcome discussion about this. Virginia Governor Ralph Northam is being pressured into resigning because of a photo from his 1984 yearbook, showing two people, one in blackface and one wearing a KKK costume, both holding beers. Don’t get me wrong, […]

Welcome to the Idiocracy

On Friday there was an Indigenous Peoples March at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC. A group of teenagers surrounded a Native American elder. What happened was captured on video, and you can see one teen blocking the man’s path, and other teens laughing, jumping around, and mocking the marchers. But here’s the really ironic […]

Can’t we all just get along?

© Joel Pett People, I just want to say, you know, can we all JUST get along? Can we get along? Can we stop making it, making it horrible for the older people and the kids? … It’s just not right. It’s not right. It’s not, it’s not going to change anything. We’ll, we’ll get […]

Fighting Racism in America

This powerful article, written by Katherine Fugate, speaks the truth about how we all have the ability to fight racism and xenophobia. If you are concerned about the current level of racism in this country, I recommend you read it. And I’ll throw in a comic about racism just for fun: © Brian McFadden

Disrespect

[from Margaret and Helen] Margaret, last week six football players knelt during the national anthem. This week it was 200. And just like Colin Kaepernick, they weren’t making a statement about the flag. I swear this president is so stupid, he couldn’t find his ass if both hands were in his back pockets. Lord help […]

Old-school Neo-Nazis

© Keef Knight As long as Donald Trump keeps clarifying his statements on Charlottesville, we may as well join in. After all, he has taken almost every possible position except this one.

Record Breaking Loser

Donald Trump has broken a presidential record. He has now achieved the lowest approval rating in his first year in office of any president, ever, and he even has five months left in his first year! The first year is supposed to be the honeymoon, so Trump can expect to go downhill from here. So […]

Making Fun of Nazis

The New York Times has an excellent article on how to deal with white supremacists, racists, and Nazis. They call it “humorous subversion” but it really is just making fun of them. Here’s one example: For decades, Wunsiedel, a German town near the Czech border, has struggled with a parade of unwanted visitors. It was […]

Whistling Dixie

© Brian McFadden Every since Nixon’s “Southern Strategy” Republicans have been courting racists and bigots in the name of states rights, voter fraud laws, harsh and excessive drug laws aimed primarily at minorities, attacks on immigrants, “three strikes”, “stand your ground” and other racist laws. The one thing they can’t stand is someone actually, you […]

Captains Deserting a Sinking Ship?

Donald Trump has managed to do something that no other Republican president in recent history has done. He has alienated the captains of industry. The presidential Strategic and Policy Forum decided to disband themselves. This group included CEOs from GM, JP Morgan Chase, Wal-Mart, Blackstone, PepsiCo, IBM, Ernst & Young, and GE (among others). The […]

I’ve looked at war from both sides now…

© Jack Ohman It only took one day for Donald Trump to go back to to blaming “both sides” for the violence in Charlottesville. He also did something worse in a way. About the white supremacist who drove his car into a crowd of protesters (killing one and putting other in the hospital), Trump said […]

Threat Assessment

© Tom Tomorrow TT admits that he initially finished this strip a week ago, but rewrote the final panel before publishing it because of Charlottesville. He didn’t want to wait until next week’s comic to make a point about neo-nazis because, well, we will probably have forgotten all about Charlottesville by then because something even […]
