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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
