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.
