    NOW We’re gonna Permit WEASELS to Run around the Dorm Room.

    Bern, I Don’t Know Who the HECK This “Dez” Person Is, But Between Hanging Devil Masks on the Wall, Receiving Possible Contraband, and Allowing RODENTS to Run Loose, She Appears to be Someone Who has ZERO Regard for the Wishes of Her Roommate.

    This kind of stuff I got clued in on before I went to college, I was there the MINUTE they unlocked the doors to the dorm to move in. That way I was there before something else showed up. Looks like Bern got a returning upperclassman as a roomie…

    And if I was Bernice I’d march the paper bag and ferret down to the HR (head resident) and turn them in. And ask for a room reassignment NOW.

    Ferrets are nice pets. My friend had one for several years. It was a hoot watching that critter rune around and play. Most pet Ferrets have had their musk glands removed. Thus, they do not have an odor. Even if they haven’t had those glands removed. If they are groomed and bathed regularly. The scent is not overpowering. Also, you will not see mice or rats if there is a ferret in the house or apartment!

    Isn’t Moony University supposed to be in California? I thought keeping ferrets as pets was illegal in that state.

    Of course, I’m sure a lot of us are assuming that the bag Viper brought in contains illegal drugs, so maybe the next person who shows up will also be offering yet some other illegal thing.

    Holy crap what an offensively drawn Asian character. Straight out of the 40s or 50s (though he forgot the fangs). Tomorrow, a Native American in full headdress and buckskins. Maybe an islander with a bone through her nose next? And finally Dez will be Mexican, with a huge sombrero and serappe. Maybe she’ll nap a lot. Come on, Evans and syndicate, you seriously thought this was okay???

    Not sure if the ferret should be a deal breaker between Bernice and Dez…. keep in mind…. Dez has not surfaced yet…. all we have is the words of two other strangers (Viper and Sun) that Dez said or should do this or that. I do not think there can be any sort of “deal breaker” scenario that would be logical UNTIL Dez actually shows up and until Bernice actually evaluates Dez herself.

    Greg, there is a better way to draw an Asian’s eyes. http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=how+to+draw+asian+eyes&qpvt=how+to+draw+asain+eyes&FORM=IGRE~Ferrets are illegal to own in California. ~Ferrets are meat eaters, and they have been known to attempt to make human flesh dinner. They also chew up paper and cloth and everything else they can possibly chew up. ~Bernice’s future: “The ferret ate my homework.” “I have nothing to wear. The ferret chewed up my clothes.” “Ouch!”~However, this is becoming an interesting storyline.

I don’t know, Luann was never prone to that sort of super-clichéd drawing… Funny by the way, how some want to push the problem away to other planets “so this is what EUROPEANS see Asians like…” (yeah, ‘cuz we don’t have tv and internet and never see any members of those elusive and rare peoples here..)

    Bernice will have to tell Dez to take care of her own business. She is not obligated to at this point. So the bag and the cage goes on Dez’s bed.

    Well, these things come in “threes,” so I’d want to see what the third thing is. Then, we’ll probably meet Dez.

    ReallyBad… I think I would not categorize the drawing as INAPPROPRIATE as much as I would say how I could see some folks feeling it is inappropriate. What I personally feel is that the drawing is rushed, simplistic, and not in similar detail to the other characters. If Evans were to add detail to a similar level as the others, then I think the issue would resolve and no one would be concerned.

    And a possible connection with these characters dropping things of at Chez Dez’ is that perhaps these people knew Dez in HS, and they are continuing their relationship through the new fresman years, and that Dez had moved into the dorm rather early, while Bernice may not have “gotten the jump”, right away…

    > So, if Greg had made her dour and not particularly friendly, like Viper, all would be OK?>Portraying a character as friendly doesn’t require depicting her with a grin that fills 1/3 of her face. If that’s how you show friendliness, then Luann, Bernice, Brad, Toni, Frank and Nancy, et al., are very unfriendly people. The huge grin has traditionally been used in stereotypical cartoons to depict Asian character who were terrible villains as well as “good guys”, and it has nothing to do with friendliness.

    Why should Bernice’s roommate’s friends become continuing characters in the strip? Why should we even want to meet the roommate herself? It’s time to cut Luann off from the crew at Moony Uni, rather than bringing more of them into the cast. The focus should be Luann and her new classmates at Pitt CC. Let’s just hope some editor takes a careful look at Luann’s PCC classmates before we get to meet them, to avoid any further embarrassing debacles like this one.

I figure Sun will improve as we see more and more renderings of her. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++While I can see the point some people are making about “stereotypes”, I do not feel that was Greg’s intention, nor his plan. And, I think his comment helps to clarify that.

    Here’s an interesting analysis of the “Charlie Chan” character from Wikipedia: –

    “Interpretations of Chan by twenty-first century critics are split, especially regarding his ethnicity. Positive assessors of Chan argue that he is portrayed as intelligent, heroic, benevolent and honorable — in contrast to the adverse depictions of evil or conniving Chinese people then current in print and on screen. Others state that Chan, despite his good qualities, reinforces certain East Asian stereotypes, such as an alleged incapacity to speak fluent English and the possession of an overly tradition-bound and subservient nature. The Chan films of the 1930s and 1940s were shown successfully in China, where the character was popular and respected and not in the least seen as sinophobic.” – And here is a link to the pic file, for reference…– And to the rest of the article , as well…

    Also, on “Bonanza,” … Hop Sing:

    I remember “Hop Sing” rather well. The Bachelor Father one is a bit more distant, but a faint memory.

    Sort of in the vain of Bonanza, I recall that McHale’s Navy (Ernest Borgnine) featured a Japanese POW named “Fuji.” But this character despite a little of the stereotypical speech (actor himself was Japanese and became a successful businessman post show) was not a caricature by nature, and, actually, was treated with respect by the crew… like “one of the gang.” In fact, he was instrumental as a foil to Joe Flynn’s “Capt. Binghamton” character (ol’ “Lead Bottom”).

    No one is saying that he couldn’t change Sun’s appearance. We’re saying it’s disappointing that he is so insensitive that he would introduce a character whose appearance needs changing.

    In today’s world, it’s simple. Flip a coin: heads it’s racist, tails it’s politically incorrect.

    Yes, it seems like he has some changes in mind for Sun. I appreciate his quick apology.

    The actor’s name was Yoshio Yoda.

    Yep.. and he went on to be a successful businessman after the show.

    > The actor’s name was Yoshio Yoda.>Didn’t he go on to bigger parts, in the “Star Wars” movies?

    I’m sure that 99.39% of us are ready to “turn the page”… in more ways than one!

    Not at all. “Dez” is obviously a special character and we’re building up to something. Press on Greg.

    Nice that Greg responded and owned up to it.

    I realize that Greg has already apologized, more or less, but I would like to add myself to the list of those who find the depiction of Sun to be an embarrassing racial portrayal.

    I have no idea why someone would bring a pet to college and then keep the pet in another person’s dorm room rather than their own. Nor do most colleges allow pets to be kept in the dorms anyway, much less animals which are illegal to be kept in the state. And foisting one’s pet off on a stranger (who hasn’t agreed to take care of it) and giving them orders on how to care for it isn’t a great portrayal of a “happy” character anyway.

    My advice to Greg would be to write this particular strip out of the Luann canon. If we ever see Sun again, she needs to be drawn quite differently from how she was drawn in today’s strip.

    Jeex folks – drop the friggin’ "racist’ comments – it’s a comic strip… first wife was Korean, second, Chinese – my son is, obviously, half-n-half (I’m Irish) … I didn’t think twice about how Sun looked – clothing, hair, face, and, yes, the smile, is a normal look to me… go live in China or Korea a while – look at more than one or two Asian people a while – read the comics -they look the same to me. And I doubt that many, if any, people “Protesting” are actually Asian -

    No food, water, or extra bedding? Due to fluctuations…

    Magoo’s Cholly Long had 3 prominent incisors. When they brought the original series nack. They lost the pseudo-Chinese dialect and lost most of the humor.
