    “according to multiple named eyewitnesses, had his hands up in the air when he was shot”

    Yeah but… all the witnesses were from the neighborhood… so that means… they were… you know……… black

    Totally off topic agrestic but how do you italicize words and add extra lines between paragraphs on your posts. I usually compose in MS Word then cut and paste but the italics and paragraph formatting don’t transfer. I know you posted about this a while back but I forgot to copy the directions. Even though it may raise indies ire I’d also like to know how you insert videos and pictures.

    “I find it entertaining to dismantle your nincompoopery”

    At the risk of quoting the fans of Rush Limbaugh, ditto

    The difference is that I’m willing to grant Lalo the editorial voice because as a Latino he shares many of the same prejudice issues that African-Americans deal with. For example: the subject of today’s strip, institutional harassment for “driving while black” is also an issue that Hispanics regularly have to deal with. Obviously you are not willing to concede that groups dealing with the same issues may share the same opinions but quite frankly I’m pretty sure that if the African-American community at large had a problem with the way they are depicted in La Cucaracha they would have made it abundantly evident by now and that has not happened.

    Be my guest if you want to try to “speak for the character of don57” (whatever that means), if I have a problem with what is being said I will speak up. Your stock-in-trade seems to be putting words into the mouths of anyone who has the audacity not to share your opinion anyway so have at it.

    Yes indie, I was wrong. Here it is again in your favorite writing style I WAS WRONG.

    But let’s return to the debate which brought about my (mistaken) assumption – you accused Lalo of being a liar, hypocrite and yes a racist for portraying African-American characters in The Beandocks when he is himself a Latino. Once again, this argument is so flawed that if you bother to follow it to even the simplest conclusion Bill Waterston would not have been able to write Calvin and Hobbes because he is neither a 5-year old boy nor a stuffed tiger.

    So once again here’s the score on this subject:
    don – WRONG for making incorrect assumptions about the race of cartoon characters
    indie – guilty of trying to defend one of the most juvenile arguments I’ve ever seen

    “Wait a minute – not long ago a poster here claimed that the Beandocks character shown is really a dark-skinned Latino, not an African American.”

    Yes indie, I was the poster that theorized that the Beandocks characters could be Latinos rather than African-American. I based this on the fact that Latinos come in a wide range of skin tones as do all races (yes, even Caucasians). I’m more than willing to admit when I am mistaken – are you?

    “And by the way, why don’t you just tell us what gender you are instead playing a sick little game”

    I realize that I’m really stepping in it here but once again indie, why does it matter so much to you what gender agrestic is? Have most of us who regularly participate on this forum ever said what gender we are? Have you?

    Since you bring it up echoraven, here’s an article that appeared on Cracked.com today which raises some salient points about the Michael Brown case (accompanied by some of their typically scatological humor). It seems even a juvenile humor web-site is able to recognize that there are questions that need answering in Ferguson.
