    Where are the Leave it to Beaver parents when you need them? ’ ’ ’ ’ ’ ’"

    They have been left far behind . . . with the beaver.

    Frank will still hit the roof.

    So Dez will be a real character in this strip. About time we got a new one.

    around 2 billion people in the world have epicanthal fold(commonly called slanted, but many see it as derogatory term) or about 1/3, of that, 98% of china have it, 75% of Singapore, 20% of Japan, (most are faintly slanted, almost round) . . . . "

    So are round eyes a racial insult in cartooning? Just like big noses?

    All Evans had to do was make the smile less comical and give her some actual eyes instead of slanted ones. I think in the end he chose to avoid the character completely. . . . . "

    That seems what happened. Sad.
    Greg did make Rosa look less “hispanic or whatever.” She was rather different at first.

    What some people think is ‘politically correct’ is not at all the same as others may think. There is no real meaning to the term.

    We can only hope to celebrate the diversity of ethnicities, not subject them to ridicule. . . . "

    Sun was never ridiculed. Think how often Brad has been ridiculed, or Tiff, or Gunther, or Mr. Fogarty. There was only a ferret (not necessarily illegal) and a wide grin — and a story begun but as yet untold.

    All of these would be quite politically incorrect to be shown, these days.. . . . "

    But it is politically incorrect to clamp down on the freedom of artistic expression, especially when no harm is intended.

    I guess if everyone’s going to do a GIS for ‘racist asian depictions’ then post them in comments every time Sun appears, it’s just as well that she hasn’t shown up in a while.

    Let’s be reasonable, cartoons are about caricatures. Things are typically exaggerated. .
    Look at the bulb noses in Drabble, Pickles, or (wow!) in The Duplex. Chinese often refer to Europeans rather routinely as “Dà-bízi” ; “Big-noses.”

    I think what I just sent is a picture of a remarkably beautiful young lady.

    Tiffany is a far more stereotyped person than Sun was.
    .
    Of course we saw little of Sun. About all we knew of her was her pet ferret and a big grin. Were those things something racially stereotyped? Not that I can see.
