webkilla - I guess that is one of the biggest problems with rasheed's comic: He presents his bullshit so incredibly one-sided & mean-spirited - its pretty much impossible for someone who's not already sympathetic to his cause to even consider anything he claims to be even remotely valid.
Muhammad Rasheed (in disguise as "CartoonFun") - I agree completely. Full disclosure: If it wasn't for the fact that I do have experience hanging out with a few different immigrant black ethnicities over the years, I wouldn't know what he was talking about when it comes to his ragging on the African immigrants the way he does. but because I did recognize what he was talking about as being real, it piqued my academic curiosity to explore some of his topics, so I can't just pretend there isn't a solid basis in fact behind most of his over-the-top, triggering caricature bullshit. For me, the real puzzle to solve is whether the way he's doing it is the best way FOR HIM? Or even for his ethnic group of Black Americans? It's not like they didn't try the other methods, right? MLK was the nicest guy who was always respectful and hated any kind of violence and didn't even use profanity...
...and we shot him in the head for trying to get his people what our government owed them for over a hundred years.
webkilla - I do harp on this in the review, repeatedly IIRC. Rasheed being so militant and black&white, mocking any black person who disagrees with him as a race traitor (or any black person dating a non-black), that he's not really earning himsef any favors. He said as much himself in the thread that his comics are NOT meant to recruit or enlighten new recruits.
Muhammad Rasheed - I can see that. He's positioned himself as the artist, honestly expressing himself. He would definitely appreciate volunteers showing up inspired by his work, but to actually recruit people who would act like stakeholders entitled to influence his message? That kind of shit is traditionally the death of true art. I think he's right to stay as the lone cartoonist.
webkilla - I don't agree here. I think it should be possible, with some honest effort, to produce a message that can appeal to people outside your community. He's scaring people away. that's doing the opposite of helping people -the alien "eww monkey" comic in particular is a fun example of that.
webkilla - Hell I'd argue that stonetoss is a better political comic that rasheed's - not all of the stonetoss comics of course - but quite a number of them do invite to debate while also making you chuckle. Very few of rasheeds comics, if any, are even "haha funny" - especially not when he gets his wall of text on.
Muhammad Rasheed - It sounds like this legendary flame war you linked to in your review was the debate that his comics invites debate for, since I can't imagine it was about anything but Rasheed's one-trick-pony show. If he got you to debate him over the issues he brought up and even cite particular cartoons of his to make your points as you are doing now, then it seems like his work is doing exactly that. At least that's what it seems like from here. Unless you're saying that because his cartoon messaging is triggering, that it makes us not want to debate him but just dismiss it as crazytown? I would have dismissed it as just angry black man rantings if I wasn't led into the rabbit hole from recognizing the facts in certain of his rhetoric that I just happened to have experience with, knowing full well the average white male doesn't have this background to draw from while evaluating 'Sheed's work.
webkilla - Even broken clocks can be right two times a day - that doesn't mean that his shit is above board overall. He even has a comic where he makes the idea of not judging people by the color of their skin out to be a racist and oppressive bad thing
Muhammad Rasheed - He's actually critiquing the Republican talking point that caricatures MLK's speech clip, not the principle itself. That's an interpretative nuance lost on you because you're outside of the back-n-forth rhetoric of our partisan game board.
webkilla - its also an interpretive nuance lost in that its not pointed out that that's what he's talking about in the comic. Again, he doesn't exactly make the comic "outsider reader friendly"
Muhammad Rasheed - As an independent comic artist with a specialized product intended for a specific demographic? What you're suggesting goes against business 101 principles that instruct not to try to make a product for everybody... choose a demographic to craft it towards. It would seem that your critique is making unreasonable demands upon this particular artist that do not align to business norms.
webkilla - Perhaps, but I would critique his entire business model then because if all he wants to do is preach to the choir, then why even bother with the comic - I honestly believe he'd further his cause more by trying to appeal to people outside his community to support his political goals - that's another point of critique really.
Muhammad Rasheed - I wanted to explore this topic more because your position has me a bit confused. I suspect it's because they do things different in the Danish local business markets? In American business practice tradition, entrepreneurs are instructed to define a specific target market and create content for them. This is not only normal, but widely recognized as a business best-practice. You seem to be saying, and please correct me if I'm interpreting your position wrong, that Rasheed should actually do the opposite of the industry standard business best practice in order for his work to be acceptable to you.
webkilla - Good to see we're still living rent free in your head. Though I do wonder how you think making fun of a bunch of webcomic reviewers will save the world from your imaginary white supremacy. Stay mad.
Muhammad Rasheed - "Good to see we're still living rent free in your head," said the guy who literally regularly updates a shrine to my work. lol Projecting much, bud?
This "bunch of webcomic reviewers" are demonstrably a bunch of willfully ignorant white supremacists who are committed to twisting an empowering pro-Black American political advocacy message into white racist tropes. It's not hard. You lot are low-level racists with a platform who have set yourselves as opposition to the antiracism message. Literally. Responding to your shitty tripe at all is by default part of the good fight. ;)
Muhammad Rasheed - I saw your silly "A Counter-Argument" section. I plan to address it in a cartoon later. Stand by.
Muhammad Rasheed - Crazy J wrote: "The one thing I don't understand is why are you depicted as a black man with a mega hat."
That's not webkilla, you retard. That's a caricature inspired by Larry Elder from a clip I saw of him being interviewed by that equally worthless Candace Owens.
Muhammad Rasheed - webkilla wrote: "...he's depicting me as a weird looking effeminate gay furry with a black slave/lover"
I literally wrote "LONG TOM" on his t-shirt. lol You're either trying to protect that jackass' sensitive little feelings, or you really are mentally retarded. That explains why your "review" comments never make a lick of sense though.
Muhammad Rasheed - I saw Long Tom 'Like' your earlier post, so he certainly recognized himself caricatured from our exchange and is over there SEETHING. lol
You're definitely trying to soothe his little feelings by pretending that above drawing is you. awww...
Muhammad Rasheed - webkilla wrote: "This isn't a shrine to your work Rashit, it's a condemnation."
lol You keep saying that you are "living rent free" in my head, yet you admit freely you regularly update this shrine to my work that you also admitted you weren't even going to originally make because my work didn't qualify for it. ToothBrush pointed out that the only reason you made this shrine is because you were emotional and butthurt.
But "muH cOndeMnaTIon" hahahahaha
Muhammad Rasheed - Wait a minute, webkilla...
...did Crazy J think that Black dude in the MAGA hat was you because he saw you post some stupid shit like that before? hahahahahahaha! Probably! :D
That's why that silly white Republican Quora dude thought my "Bureau of White Interests" director was him, too -- not because they looked alike -- but because I had him parroting classic GOP talking points and assumed I was quoting him! lol
ToothBrush - We all know that's bullshit because Furries are incapable of feeling shame.
Muhammad Rasheed - webkilla wrote: "you know me well :) "
Tell me what your 'furry' animal identity is, please, for my reference files.
btw, during our old Flame War, I asked you if you were gay or trans or whatever and you pointedly refused to answer. That's why I had my "CartoonFun" character refuse to answer your questions about how he felt about M. Rasheed's lbgt accusation toons. I'll never know if you got the callback reference or not, since you love pretending you didn't see stuff so you can hide your stupidity. For example, I remember you complaining about receiving the email notifications to my blog when I respond like this, so I know for a fact you were only pretending not to know what ToothBrush was talking about. ;)
Stay a slimy piece-of-sh*t, webkilla. it looks good on you.
