Scott M - Your drawings are awe inspiring, tear jerking, friend losing, and intellectual. But bleed of truth. And only an awakened black man, or woman will get it without offense. To the masses you are dangerous. But to Men, fathers, sons, and uncles like me... you are needed. Keep the expression, and the art coming. Please!

Muhammad Rasheed - Thank you! I appreciate you!

Design Flaw in the Left's Faux Cure-All

2019 Glyph Comics Award Winner (BEST COMIC STRIP OR WEBCOMIC)!

CITATION
Rasheed, Muhammad. "Design Flaw in the Left's Faux Cure-All." Cartoon. The Official Website of Cartoonist M. Rasheed 10 Sep 2019. Pen & ink w/Adobe Photoshop color.

Ed Savage - My only question, and I understand you are trying to make out all white people as racist, is - is there no black/brown skinned socialists?

Muhammad Rasheed - On the left is the 1% class, with the percentage of Black people so low in that group it's like they don't even matter at all.

Muhammad Rasheed - The grand reveal is that the concept of socialism is actually a scheme invented by the 1% grifter class to continue to supplant competition in the free markets so they'll maintain their wealth hoarding monopolies. The very LAST group they would EVER want to compete equally with is the black American Descendants of Slavery. So any 'black socialists' are just indoctrinated puppets of the 1% and aren't real.

Ed Savage - OK. Got it. I am saddened for both you and me that life has been so bad for you, racially speaking, that this is such a big focus for you. Even more saddened that there is too much truth to what you are saying. And yet I can't help but feel like I am being lumped in with that 1%, though I am far from it, and being painted with the same brush. Is there nothing good about the United States in your mind? Not trying to start a fight or be an ass, I am honestly asking.

Muhammad Rasheed - Ed wrote: "OK. Got it. I am saddened for both you and me that life has been so bad for you, racially speaking, that this is such a big focus for you.”

Fortunately, I subscribe to one of the Abrahamic organized religions and recognize, per the Word of my Lord, that we are tested in this life with both adversity and prosperity to build up our character and save our souls. I am not saddened, Ed, but invigorated for the challenge of the fight ahead, as I am assured that my Lord is with me for as long as I believe and persevere. As long as I fight In the name of God and never give up, all will be well.

Ed wrote: "Even more saddened that there is too much truth to what you are saying.”

It is more sad that so many lie under the lies of falsehood. Truth liberates. It is liberating to look directing into my enemy’s eye and accurately discern truth from the beast’s lies. It gives my work the purpose I was born for.

Ed wrote: "And yet I can't help but feel like I am being lumped in with that 1%, though I am far from it, and being painted with the same brush.”

The 1% grafter class are a very, very tiny portion of the white racist aristocracy. The rest of the so-called white peoples – of far lesser net worth – are the ones who guard the system and both support and protect the White Supremacist Ideology and the anti-Black systemic racism for which it stands. The 1% doesn’t do the work subjugating, exploiting and plundering ADOS to maintain their wealth hoards. The other whites do this. The Candid & Courageous Conversation needed to finally cure our nation of this great evil will require you to take a hard look at where you stand in the aristocracy’s hierarchy.

Ed wrote: "Is there nothing good about the United States in your mind.”

Of course. I built this country. I was deliberately cut off from everything I once knew in Africa and now know ONLY the dormant and unfulfilled greatness of the ideals of the United States of America that my abused ethnic group longs to experience for ourselves. America is my home and my home is worth fighting for.

[REVIEW] Dave Chappelle's Sticks & Stones



Anonymous - Did Dave Chappelle go too far in his latest Netflix special “Sticks & Stones?”

Muhammad Rasheed - No, I don’t think he went too far. We need to have that Candid & Courageous Conversation on every topic Dave touched upon. Here’s my takeaway bullets from his show:

  • Founding Fathers writing the Constitution – Every key moment in the building of the United States of America we find a Black person taking it to the next level. White supremacists enjoy revealing their ignorance of history and the depths of their anti-Black indoctrination by boldly asking “What contributions have ADOS ever made to civilization?”
  • Leaving Neverland“I’m going to say something really controversial: I don’t believe these mother*ckas.” Nuff said.
  • Standards & Practices“Because, David, you aren’t gay.” The strength of Chappelle’s comedy insight is pointing out the hypocrisy in the national social justice discourse. If the black American Descendants of Slavery (ADOS) do not aggressively fight for their rights and freedoms, they will get ran over by every other special interest group who is unapologetically pushing & shoving to position themselves towards political advantage, and we will find ourselves back in chattel. Period.
  • The G’s are Driving that Car – White men are the driving force behind the gay rights movement and they are able to achieve the socio-political progress they make by negotiating through the roads of discrimination because they built those roads. Brilliant insight.
  • Chappelle’s Solution to the Abortion Issue - “And if I’m wrong, perhaps we’re both wrong.” Dave’s comment is the summary of what is actually happening in society: abortion is normal, as is the male abandonment of the child born outside of wedlock. Both are the extreme side effects of the sexual revolution which violently rebelled against traditionalist family trends born from an often oppressive patriarchal system. There’s obvious levels of blatant irresponsibility and immorality inherent within each gender’s approach, but I’m more interested in whether the future discussions will ever clear the hurdles of blind political ideology to determine when it will ever be time for that pendulum to finally swing away from the “death & abandonment” side of the spectrum to rest at a more reasonable middle ground that enables us to approach something significantly closer to a healthy society.
  • Disarm America’s Whites – That’s adorable. Obviously arming ADOS is the way to go for far more valuable reasons than what was stated in Dave’s punchline.
  • ADOS Saving America Again – As pointed out in the 1619 Project, ADOS has always believed in the highest ideals of the United States of America, and has used the force of that belief to build up the country on the policy side whenever they got the chance to. The dominant group obviously only wants the USA to work for them alone, and routinely molest it to support their precious white racist aristocracy. If ADOS doesn’t do the work then it won’t get done, but the rub is that we CAN’T neglect ourselves in the doing. Make sure we fight equally for our ADOS Reparations, ADOS socio-political empowerment and our ADOS economic inclusion while we seize the nation by the ear and frog march it towards the greatness of its woefully neglected dormant potential.
  • Battle of the Drug Epidemics “Because I don’t care either.” I agree with Dave in every way on this item. Are you REALLY trying to get me to feel sorry for your hypocritical, drug addicted stank ass while you STILL criminalize ADOS under the anti-Black banner of the so-called ‘War on Drugs?” A public policy of treating opioid addicted white people with care, respect & love while continuing to treat my people like crap is an open declaration of the formal race war as far as I’m concerned.
  • Jussie Smollett – Dave pointed out that during the early stages of the controversy, the gay community charged the ADOS community of not being supportive enough of their issues. I noticed that the gay community is very aggressive in pushing for their political agenda bullets, but actively attack ADOS when we aggressively fight for ours with an equal single-minded focus – the same level of focus the LGBTQ has used to achieve their milestone accomplishments. They should back off since this behavior can only be interpreted as bullying and it’s NOT how to maintain an ally.

Josh Humphries - Are these supposed to have any element of humor in them? I agree with the politics but I cant tell if the intention is to put a spin on the subject matter or if it's just in the format of a comic strip but without any form of humor or punchline. I dont think the comic strip format is reserved only for humor but the basic tenets of a one panel strip has me expecting either a punchline or a sense of irony, hypocrisy or both, layed wide open.

Muhammad Rasheed - Josh wrote: "... me expecting either a punchline or a sense of irony, hypocrisy or both..."

Considering 'socialism' and it's related systems are traditionally presented in the modern day as the natural counter to the 1% grifter class' crony corporatism, you don't recognize the irony in the revelation "that unhindered concentration of power leads predictably to socialism that is antagonistic to our system?"

Josh Humphries - I do, but only if I concentrate really hard, and even then I cant tell if Ive missed something. You pack alot into a single balloon. Thanks for getting back to me.

Muhammad Rasheed - lol No prob.
