This #MRasheedCartoons image was inspired by this insightful FB comment from the hardest workin' man in the Black Speculative Self-Publishing space:

"One of the most disappointing things I've experienced on my publishing journey was the voluntary segregation of Black indie speculative creators when the money showed up. A close second was the sudden explosion of Afrofuturism 'experts.'" ~Milton Davis, MVmedia, LLC

The problem he's describing -- which is directly related to how Marvel Comics Group and Diamond Distribution destroyed the pro-indie direct market that made figures like Dave Sim and Jeff Smith their early fortunes -- is the diabolical antitrust violations of mega-corporate. This monopolization of industry is the highest form of systemic racism and does the most damage in efficiently locking us out of the next-level wealth-building side of business.
