Sorry to be a bummer, but this was so ridiculous that I had to share it. I was going to check out today’s Doonesbury on Yahoo when the attached comic popped onscreen. It was so patently offensive and racist that I still can’t believe that its real.

As usual, here we are, minding our own business when something racist pops up and smacks you in the face. The carjackistan joke, the elaborate hairstyle and joke about headroom in the car – yet, I can already hear someone protesting they are talking about a “certain type of black woman, the WNBA player.”


This is “nappy headed hos” in comic form.
