Rasheed, Muhammad. "The Ultimate 'Mary Sue' Fictional Narrative." Cartoon. The Official Website of Cartoonist M. Rasheed 24 Aug 2021. Pen & ink w/Adobe Photoshop color.
This #MRasheedCartoons image was inspired by the ongoing sarcasm and sneers projected at my most popular cartoon, which was created as the cover illustration to an old FB thread discussing how aliens would actually respond if they came to earth from the #WhenTheAliensCome hashtag trend. Intrigued by the topic, I addressed it both from a theist standpoint and from the racism position, turning the assumptions of the white supremacist community upside-down, much to their chagrin. Here I noticed many newcomers commenting on the old toon, having stumbled upon it for the first time as they also expressed a sarcastic incredulousness that the aliens wouldn’t simply accept whatever the white racist aristocracy told them about humans with no questions asked. Meanwhile, we all agree the visitors would be a species much more advanced than us, and from many close encounter reports, even possess telepathic abilities and can read minds, yet we’re supposed to believe that they will be quite vulnerable to the sloppy and arrogant gaslighting tactics of greedy white people that don’t even work on ME. lol
