Communication Glitch

Rasheed, Muhammad. "Communication Glitch." Cartoon. The Official Website of Cartoonist M. Rasheed 01 Jan 2019. Pen & ink w/Adobe Photoshop color.

Shreyas Neelakantan Sharma - I love the comic!

I think a lot of the problem black people face today, that are attributed to “culture” can actually be attributed to the War on Drugs. Due to the unfair ways black men were targeted and incarcerated due to drugs , a lot of black children grew up in single-mother households creating economic problems for the black community.

I feel the best policy is to ensure the systematic incarceration of blacks due to arcane drug laws doesn't happen.

Muhammad Rasheed - Yes, the mass incarceration, for-profit prison industry is just one arm of anti-Black systemic racism. It isn’t the root cause of the problem. If we throw all of our attention at it, we’ll just be attacking a symptom and will allow the problem to grow bigger behind our backs.

Harry Rogers - Shreyas wrote: "Due to the unfair ways black men were targeted and incarcerated due to drugs"

Is it unfair when a disproportionate amount of black people are drug dealers? Sure there might be social factors that make people turn to crime, but is it really unfair to enforce the law even if it happens to affect a certain few ethnicities more than others?

Muhammad Rasheed - Of course it’s unfair. The reason it’s unfair is to give an economic advantage for one group over another, and the advantaged group—who obviously wants to maintain the advantaged position—releases propaganda to control the narrative to keep the gravy train going.

A disproportionate amount of Black people are convicted for drug related crimes, while whites are treated completely differently by the pro-white supremacy police force. That’s where the unfairness comes in at.
