Perks of the Whitopia Playground

Click for Artist's Description

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

CITATION
Rasheed, Muhammad. "Perks of the Whitopia Playground." Cartoon. The Official Website of Cartoonist M. Rasheed 23 Sep 2019. Pen & ink w/Adobe Photoshop color.

Zach Ocasio-Cortez - lmfao

Timothy Fitch - Black and white workers do not have different interests

Muhammad Rasheed - That's not what the historical record shows.

You can tell by way of the two groups' widely differing views regarding the election of Barack Obama and what the symbol of the event meant to each.

Timothy Fitch - @Muhammad... they might think differently. But that's because of intentional divisions. Not their interests

Again, black and white workers have exactly the same interests

Timothy Fitch - neither benefits from racism. Or sexism. Or religious chauvinism. Neither benefits from capitalism.

Muhammad Rasheed - 1.) White people economically benefit from racism at all class levels. The poorest white still receives the perks of being a member of the white racist aristocracy.

2.) "Religious chauvinism" reflects an atheist's strawman effigy if it doesn't align to the point of the Word of God. Please note that the white slave holders deliberately altered the biblical message before they allowed the enslaved Blacks to have it. This fact is NOT insignificant.

3.) Both the white and Black peoples benefit from free market capitalism, which is why the 1% grifter class monopolizes the free open markets and takes capitalism from the people. The leftist war against capitalism is trash.

Timothy Fitch - white people not being hurt as much by racism does not mean racism is in their interests. Race theory encapsulates white people as well

God doesn't exist

Classed society is the root of evil in society

Timothy Fitch - Do you know what capitalism is? It's the production of goods for private profit rather than social need. How is that good?

Muhammad Rasheed - Timothy wrote: “white people not being hurt as much by racism does not mean racism is in their interests.”

Would society as a whole be better without the White Supremacist ideology and the anti-Black systemic racism for which it stands? Of course. Does every sub-class of the white racist aristocracy benefit economically from the racist system that deliberately tilts in their favor? YES.

Timothy wrote: “God doesn't exist”

You’re a fool.

Timothy wrote: “Classed society is the root of evil in society”

Unchecked greed is the root of society’s evil.

Timothy wrote: “Do you know what capitalism is?”

Yup. That’s why I know for a fact that its free market competition is for the people and the 1% grifter class HATES it.

Timothy wrote: “It's the production of goods for private profit rather than social need. How is that good?”

Because the nation is composed of private citizens who care for their own needs in a social setting.

Timothy Fitch - @Muhammad...and that's what socialism is. Self-rule. No overclass

Black capitalists benefit from the same system you fool

Why am I the fool? Because I'm convinced by evidence and not ancient ideas?

Muhammad Rasheed - "Black capitalists" is a myth without the capital (Reparations) to fund it. Otherwise, it only functions as a 'brown-skinned white man."

You are a fool because you make definitive foolish statements based on literally nothing at all to back them.

Timothy Fitch - Obama is a black capitalist who oversaw the largest transfer of wealth to the 1%, deported the most immigrants in US history, oversaw regime change in Libya that established a slave trade, started the American military's helping to starve the people in Yemen, assassinated US citizens without due process, etc etc

The color of his skin had nothing to do with his crimes against humanity

I find it funny you're saying I've offered no evidence. Yet you called me a fool for not believing in god.

Your politics are trash for the international working class. We want a solution. Not more capitalist bs like the kind you're serving

Muhammad Rasheed - Post the links that prove the points listed in your first paragraph, please, if you are truthful. I'll provide my counter to the rest shortly. Stand by...

Timothy Fitch - @Muhammad... you're solidly right wing with your pro capitalist and racialist politics. Why are you on this page?

Muhammad Rasheed - Timothy wrote: “Obama is a black capitalist…”

In this case, he builds his wealth from his publishing and speaking fees, leveraging his massive celebrity power for his capital. There is nothing immoral or unethical in this and zero reason to vilify capitalism based on the president’s example alone.

Timothy wrote: “…who oversaw the largest transfer of wealth to the 1%...”

Is this in reference to the Great Recession bank and auto-industry bailouts? Please note that the 1913 Federal Reserve Act obligates the U.S. government to bailout its central bank partners whenever they perform their sociopathic schemes. There is nothing any single sitting president can do about that except comply and the situation certainly doesn't represent "capitalism" since the bank/gov partnership is a textbook monopoly. And Obama forced the auto-companies to pay back their bailouts since they were not protected by the Fed Reserve Act contract.

Timothy wrote: “…deported the most immigrants in US history…”

And immediately sat with the immigrant lobbyists after their client protests and worked with them.

Timothy wrote: “…oversaw regime change in Libya that established a slave trade…”

“Oversaw” is disingenuous claptrap. The US gov’s role in that travesty was minute by design. The overthrow of COL Gaddafi was spearheaded by other Western world powers, and the USA just helped. Obama was NOT trying to drag the American people into a new war.

Timothy wrote: “…started the American military's helping to starve the people in Yemen…”

By doing what?

Timothy wrote: “…assassinated US citizens without due process…”

Which Americans were those?

Timothy wrote: “etc etc”

It has not been lost on me that you declined to provide your proof links. What else am I to make of this? That you just enjoy slandering Obama?

Timothy wrote: “The color of his skin had nothing to do with his crimes against humanity”

“The color of his skin” functions as a strawman effigy in context. None of the administration’s military actions had anything to do with “capitalism.” For example, COL Gaddafi’s well-known intention to compete with the World Bank/IMF system with a united African gold standard currency of his own represented a resurrection of an open market capitalist base. It was immediately attacked by the globalist financial cartel in that 1% class’ ongoing war against capitalism. If anything, it was COL Gaddafi himself who proved to hold capitalist beliefs and not his anti-competition attackers.

Timothy wrote: “I find it funny you're saying I've offered no evidence.”

You admit you can’t provide evidence for material world secular beliefs that actually require physical secular evidence to be proven fact. That’s hilarious.

Timothy wrote: “Yet you called me a fool for not believing in god.”

The One God doesn’t require physical secular evidence for humans to accept His religious systems, since it turns out that faith is the activating principle of a “belief system.” Are you supposed to be demonstrating that you are somehow not a fool? Curious.

Timothy wrote: “Your politics are trash for the international working class. We want a solution.”

The solution is the exact same system that the very anti-capitalism 1% grifter class has schemed you into vilifying.

Timothy wrote: “you're solidly right wing with your pro capitalist…”

There are zero ‘right-wingers’ who believe in the free open market capitalism that would free the people from the clutches of the 1% hoarding monopolizers and prosper the people. Even the die-hard white supremacists eschew the capitalist concept for no other reason than it would allow the American Descendants of Slavery (ADOS) to economically prosper, too.

Timothy wrote: “and racialist politics”

Do you consider ME the author of "racialist politics?" lol As a foundational Black American -- descendant of the oft-maligned chattel slave -- you realize I'm of the nation's bottom caste, yes? What are you blaming on me now? smh

Timothy wrote: “Why are you on this page?”

My dedicated anti-racism and pro-ADOS stance has me formally labeled as a member of the ‘liberal/left.’ I don’t make the rules, Tim. lol

As far as I can tell in the historical record, the only reason why the black American Descendants of Slavery aren't still traditionally voting Republican as a group is because that's where all the lynch-happy/police brutality jackasses went.

Cornelia Pierce - Yes please go away, far away. (Btw, best comic yet)

CITATION
Rasheed, Muhammad. "The Follow Through." Cartoon. The Official Website of Cartoonist M. Rasheed 16 Sep 2019. Pen & ink w/Adobe Photoshop color.

Eric Chef Raffy - There are always candidates like Marianne Williamson who claim to support a black agenda but realistically she knows and everyone else knows that she doesn't have a real chance at being elected. If Ados came together to support our own candidate in the democratic primary then that could actually help to build a movement. You'll never get all blacks to support anyone but If we could get 60-75% of blacks supporting the same candidate in the primary then they would have a chance. The key to this working would be for us to build alliances with both whites and other non Ados groups.

Muhammad Rasheed - You lost me with the last sentence.

Muhammad Rasheed - Or let me say this:

It depends on WHEN in the struggle this alliance should take place.

Eric Chef Raffy - You don't understand the importance of alliances or what?

Muhammad Rasheed - If you think this alliance will happen NOW when we are still trying to build up our own lineage/heritage identity, then your message will doom us to yet more sabotage.

The alliances have to happen AFTER full-on ADOS Empowerment, Economic Inclusion, and self-reliance. #StudyHistory #LessonsLearned

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.


Jennifer Gary - I’ve always loved Chapelle, even his more controversial stuff. But I took offense to his attack on Michael Jackson’s accusers… saying “I don’t believe those m*fers” then completely copping out with “Even if he did do it??….. (stupid look) …. You know what I mean???? I mean, it’s Michael Jackson!” Dave just seemed like a biased drone at that point. “I mean, it’s Dave Chappelle! He smarter than that.”

Jahvarius Kendrick - But Dave has made jokes about 15 year old girls that have been kidnapped. Surely you would know he would make a joke about this too. Also if you can laugh at those jokes, surely you can laugh at these. If you weren't laughing at either I understand but many people were laughing at both of those scenarios eventhough they were both messed up.

Jennifer Gary - Well, I have a bias in that I watched the special on MJ and I have treated survivors of chronic molestation and sexual abuse. When I watched it, all the fibers of my being indicated those guys were telling the truth. So when one of my idols says that he doesn’t believe “those mf’ers” and doesn’t offer anything other than a shrug, it’s hard for me to swallow. At that point, Dave seemed totally biased as there was no supporting data, no satire, no joke, no politically astute commentary. I still can’t believe how much of a cop out that was. I mean, if you are going to question the validity of the reports of two chronically suicidal men on an international stage, you should have something to back it up, or it is completely frivolous.

Muhammad Rasheed - Jennifer wrote: “…all the fibers of my being indicated those guys were telling the truth.”

Here: Just Asking's answer to Do you agree with Dave Chappelle in Sticks & Stones when he said he doesn't believe Michael Jackson's accusers? Or do you believe the men?

Jennifer wrote: “…you should have something to back it up…”

Like the “fibers of being?” smdh He’s a comedian doing a shock value joke and using that same level of research into the matter as your “being fibers.” His gut told him they were lying, which proved it more accurate than yours.

Jennifer Gary - Lol okay, maybe I should have said “clinical intuition” Either way, I think I have a little more credibility in deciphering what is trauma versus what is not due to my training, experience and current work. That said, I would have listened if Dave Chappelle had some kind of evidence or logical reasoning why he didn’t believe Michael Jackson’s accusers, but he didn’t offer anything. What he said was not funny or clever or thought provoking in the least.

Muhammad Rasheed - Jennifer wrote: “…I think I have a little more credibility…”

I’ve noticed that you’ve chosen to ignore the link to Just Asking’s answer, where the list of gaping and embarrassing holes in the stories of the two accusers were revealed for all to see. Such behavior reasonably negatively affects the credibility levels of those who wish to be taken seriously.

Please note that the reason Michael Jackson won his court case isn’t because of the force of his celebrity, but because it was proven that the families of the accusers were professional grifters who preyed upon celebrities for money. Those who are aware of this fact view Just Asking’s list of accuser holes in a very specific way, while those who prefer to use the anti-MJ biased media’s unfair portrayal of Jackson to build their “fibers of being” tend to simply ignore it. This latter also reasonably negatively affects the credibility levels of those who wish to be taken seriously.

Jennifer wrote:
“…but he didn’t offer anything.”

Dave is a successful stand-up comedian at the top of his game. He is literally under zero obligation to provide anything at all other than jokes. By contrast, anyone using terms like “clinical” along with “training, experience and current work” to create an aura of professionalism that requires something other than jokes to back their claim to be able to tell whether a trauma victim is telling the truth or not, will require something more substantial than intuition and magic fibers.

In this thread, you have boldly chosen to side with diabolical grifters over Michael Jackson and you don’t even seem to care. This shows you in a bad light and damages your credibility.

Jennifer wrote: “What he said was not funny or clever or thought provoking in the least.”

I found the exact opposite to be true. But I see the topic in a clearer light than you do.

Jennifer Gary - I am a neuropsychologist. What do you do for a living?

Muhammad Rasheed - Are you really going to double-down on that?

So in your decision to now formally choose to present your credentials as a scientist in a petty checkers move, let me remind you that in this very thread you have casually dismissed the facts & truth that won the verdict for the defendant in the Michael Jackson sexual allegations trial, in favor of using the unfairly anti-MJ biased tabloid sensationalism to inform your “fibers of being” and “intuition.” At BEST, intuition should supplement the foundations of facts & truth used by the scientist, yet you have proudly performed the opposite of this to join in on the immoral and unethical slander of Michael Jackson’s name, reputation and legacy.

In effect, you appear to care very little indeed for your credibility as a self-proclaimed neuropsychologist. And if you don’t care, why in the world should I care?

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.
