i may be sick and dying but quality comics always come first
Why not? U MAD?
you do realize this is super literally racist, right? because, y’know, i’d feel really bad if you didn’t
there is no advantage gained by drawing them white, thus, it is not racist
First of all you have a gigantic misunderstanding of what racism is.
Second, there is still an advantage. By making Lee and Clem white you’re not only stripping them of their racial identity but you’re taking the representation they give away from a group of people who aren’t always represented in media and are giving it to another group who is always represented in media.
i will reblog this every time
I worked with a lady that came into work one day with no hair. No one mentioned it, no one talked about it. She was wearing a bandana so we all knew she was bald.
But I have ADD, and not so great control of my impulsiveness. Finally, near the end of the night I asked. “So… can I ask, what happened to your hairs?”
She smiled and hugged me. I was the only person with the cajones to ask. “My best friend is pregnant, already has a 4 yr old, and was diagnosed with cancer, and her boyfriend left her because it was too much. So I’ve been helping her out, being supportive. And I promised her if she started losing her hair I would shave my head too.”
“Last night she called me, crying because her hair was falling out in clumps. I told her I’d be there in 10 minutes. She shaved me first, then I her.”
It’s the most supportive thing she could think to do.
I just started crying.
Parenting and friendship, both being done right.
