Rasheed, Muhammad. "Nothing Like an Understanding." Cartoon. The Official Website of Cartoonist M. Rasheed 23 Jun 2020. Pen & ink w/Adobe Photoshop color.
Mark Brown - So, I'm unclear, you seem really focused on homosexuality, what is it that is exactly you are referencing in your comics, looking for open discourse
Muhammad Rasheed - What I'm referencing is spelled out in full within the mini-series of toons themselves. If you look just a little deeper you'll see that they aren't focused on homosexuality at all, but instead on this failed concept of "allyship."
John Cichowski - Pitting two oppressed groups against each other with a mean spirted stereotype for LGBTQ figure.
Muhammad Rasheed - White men are not oppressed, John. Stop.
John Cichowski - The African American guy and the bald guy (who you have presented as a member of the LGBTQ community before). You are deflecting.
Muhammad Rasheed - The bald guy is a white male, John. White males are not an oppressed group. Please stop saying foolishness.
John Cichowski - You presented him before in one of your earlier drawings as a gay man.
Muhammad Rasheed - Dear John... White males are NOT an oppressed group regardless of sexual orientation, class status, religion, etc. Please only say what is actually true.
John Cichowski - So gay white men or Jewish white men are not or have never been oppressed? Wow . . . . just wow. I assume that the Nazi holocaust is something you are aware of? I know you believe that this was oppression in its worst form. I assume you an not a Holocaust denier of course.
Muhammad Rasheed - Dear John... Please note that several countries paid the Holocaust survivors reparations and came together to build them their very own independent nation-state. Today, the white Jew is the most economically successful ethnic group on the planet and the Israel lobby is the most powerful in Washington DC. I can see that you are very uncomfortable and are desperately trying to wrench the subject into a different direction so you can pretend to be an oppressed victim. smdh
White men are NOT an oppressed group, regardless of sexual orientation or religion. Please stop talking foolishness.
John Cichowski - How much did they pay the dead people? Are you saying Jewish men were not an oppressed group? Gay men do not face discrimination? I'm not sure that I am the foolish one here.
Muhammad Rasheed - Dear John... Experiencing discrimination is NOT synonymous with "oppression."
John Cichowski - I give up. You win. The white man is the devil. Speaking as a white man, I know this is true. You have revealed us to the world.
Muhammad Rasheed - You are a trip... smh
