Kobibornanew - Psychological reparations would help us more than monetary reparations ever could.

Muhammad Rasheed - All of our psychological issues come directly from domestic terror induced aritifical impoverishment. Massive infusions of cash is the very FIRST thing we need to overcome our psychological traumas.

Brannu Sunyata - So, basically what you’re saying, is there’s no psychological healing without an infusion of cash? So if capitalism collapses ... we don’t heal? 

That sounds hella dependent. Not free.

Muhammad Rasheed - My ethnic group's specific trauma was caused by deliberate exploitation & plunder, preventing me from building wealth over generations and leaving #ADOS in an artificially impoverished state. You cure the root cause of my signature trauma with a Reparatory wealth redistribution.

The only person who would suggest that my theft-based trauma can be cured with non-wealth redistribution therapy/counselling—that does not address the artificially widening racial wealth gap—is an anti-#ADOS agent of white supremacy.

Brannu Sunyata - ... and if U.S. imperialism/capitalism collapses and there is no possibility of wealth redistribution, then what would the healing of your trauma from white supremacy look like?

... and if the wealth distribution you are begging for/demanding isn’t the amount you feel able to heal that trauma, then what?

Muhammad Rasheed - You're basically asking me "If a meteor strikes the earth and blows it up, THEN what?" That's the level of seriousness of your question. 

Why bother to do anything at all then since there is always a possibility that the entire [fill-in-the-blank] could collapse?

Muhammad Rasheed - I'm not "begging" for anything. I'm unifying as a special interest group to use my political capital pressure my government to meet my demands in exchange for my vote. 

"Begging" or "gibs" is a white supremacist slur in context.

Muhammad Rasheed - "Why bother trying to govern/misgovern yourself if the entire government could collapse?"

Pandering for White Gaze Favor

Rasheed, Muhammad. "Pandering for White Gaze Favor." Cartoon. The Official Website of Cartoonist M. Rasheed 21 Nov 2020. Pen & ink w/Adobe Photoshop color.


Muhammad Rasheed - The worst part* of an entertainment industry monopolized by white-owned corporate is the fact that #ADOS who want to work in the industry are forced to pander to whites and to what makes them comfortable. Listening to "raceless" Black entertainers who default believe whatever white people believe while on stage SUCKS SHIT. It's embarassing.

The last time Dave Chappelle pandered in that way was back in 2016 when he expressed to "Let's give Trump a chance" that time on SNL and he's regretted it ever since. Every show after that he unapologetically just speaks what's real and triggers white people mercilessly. Interestingly, despite some special interest groups impotently trying to 'cancel' him, they actually gave him an Emmy for his no-holds-barred fearlessness, which is a remarkable feat.

They saw him walk away from that $50 million and perhaps fear what he WOULD say if they did try to formally ostracize him.

_________________________
* The actual worst part is obviously #ADOS being economically excluded from the wealth-building class of that industry, but I was being melodramatic for effect.

Foolkiller V: 'Don't do it, son! It ain't worth it!'

Muhammad Rasheed - The original Marvel Comic's character called Foolkiller would comb through newspapers and other media looking for evidence of fools that he could hunt down and kill. The second Foolkiller that Spider-man fought around 1980-81 or so, came to the epiphany during the course of that adventure that a fool by his nature will interfere with your life and cause unnecessary hardship just while you're going through your normal day and minding your own business. You don't have to hunt them down, they will come to you.




This was an example of a "mere" street level hero I've always been fond of, even though Spider-man treated him like a villain in the referenced tale, which I 100% disagreed with. "N199a, let that man work."

His gun shot powerful disintegrating beams of soundless light, that could put a man-sized hole in the asphalt with about 12 shots, enabling him to jump through before Spider-man could grab him. It's one of my TOP FIVE favorite ray guns in fiction.

Michael Forsyth - It is indeed a perfect representation of the divisiveness. You choose to show "biracial" people holding down and oppressing Black people who are descendants of American slaves. Most Black folks don't make that distinction. They consider a person who is half white, like President Obama, Black. As Black has always been defined in this country. (Just ask the people who were one-quarter Black who were held as slaves or their children who were one-eighth Black. "But I'm part Indian" didn't get you off the plantation either). Most of us also don't make a distinction between people whose forebears came from the Caribbean where their ancestors were slaves. My niece whose grandparents were from St. Thomas, Black chick. My brother-in-law whose mom is from Liberia, also just a Black American. All of us Black folks went through the same struggles in this century and the last. We all look up to Marcus Garvey, Malcom X, Sidney Poitier. We all drop to the pavement when that cop says "Hit the ground, nigger." Look at Hispanics. They COULD insist on being categorized differently as Cubans, Puerto Ricans, Mexicans, South Americans of Indian descent and South Americans of Spanish descent. But instead, in this country, politically, they ask to be considered a bloc. Why? Because they know that gives them more POWER. There's only one narrow circumstance in which separating out ADOS makes sense. I agree with you that, logically, reparations from the U.S. government should go only to citizens whose ancestors were slaves in the United States. But brother, think about this: How likely REALLY is it that these white politicians are going to dole out trillions of dollars to us? Motherfuckers like Lindsay Graham? Your cartoons are powerful, man, well-executed. But ask yourself, is it really worth it to encourage ADOS, West Indian Americans, African immigrants and Black people with white blood in them to break into factions and butt heads, diminishing our power as a united people, on the CHANCE that one day the white man will do the right thing and send out reparation checks?

Muhammad Rasheed - Michael wrote: "But ask yourself, is it really worth it to encourage ADOS, West Indian Americans, African immigrants and Black people with white blood in them to break into factions..."

We were already broken up into factions. Some among the "West Indian Americans, African immigrants and Black people with white blood" had formed cliques and alliances with white supremacy to bamboozle ADOS with the "pan-africanist" long-con to help their white masters disenfranchise us from the political process with a false "flat-blackness" grift. We had no idea this was happening until we began to unify politically along our unique lineage & heritage to pressure out government for our Reparations, when to our surprise and disappointment, the "West Indian Americans, African immigrants and Black people with white blood in them" began fiercely attacking us as if we had no right to advocate for our own long-neglected ethnic group.

This is the truth of the matter, and the true nature of the position of Righteous Self-Defense that my editorial cartoons take. Please refrain from posting anymore of your opinions about #ADOS underneath my cartoons since they are both inaccurate and offensive. Your knee-jerk emotional rant above does not match the truth of my actual experience with these skinfolk you champion. Instead, check your "West Indian Americans, African immigrants and Black people with white blood in them" and tell them to leave us alone so that I will have zero reason to further caricature their treacherous behavior and forked-tongued double-talk.

Thank you.
