Rasheed, Muhammad. "Anti-Equity." Cartoon. The Official Website of Cartoonist M. Rasheed 05 May 2021. Pen & ink w/Adobe Photoshop color.
This #MRasheedCartoons image was inspired by the lightning quick drafting, signing and implementation of the Anti-Asian Hate Crimes Bill triggered by a very recent violent terror event. Like the Japanese Internment Reparations Bill before it, it represented specificity for a special interest group that was passed quickly & decisively despite complaints from dissenters because it the right thing to do.
By contrast, such specificity for Black Americans was pointed denied, these denials framed within justifications claiming that it would “divide the nation.” Regularly occurring violent terror events since George Zimmerman was allowed to murder the youth Trayvon Martin with impunity provided nothing for the Black American community accept a grifting “Black Lives Matter” that preyed upon Black American trauma to raise money to give to rival political identity groups.While this is happening, the nation is currently in a heated debate over whether the United States is racist or not. Presumably, giving the so-called “model minority” more benefits and favor under the white gaze is supposed to prove that the nation isn’t run by racists, but please note that it has always been the American Descendants of Slavery ethnic group who has born the full brunt of the white racist aristocracy’s systemic racist terror protocols, and the fact that this situation has not changed at all, means that the nation is indeed still ran by greed-fueled arrogant racist across the board.
