Re: “Stegelin: Trump tales

Where's the Hillary cartoons? "I didn't send any classified emails" " Well they weren't marked" "Well no one will prosecute me" "Everyone knows 50 people the either committed suicide, were murdered, or died mysterious deaths, don't you??...happens all the time". Something like that...

Re: “Stegelin: How to not get shot by police

That guy is black? He's got straight hair. I at first assumed he might be Hispanic or Indian or something like that. Then I read the inscription 3. Don't be black. I mean, very few black men straighten their hair. Among women, it is much more common. But with such short hair, I assumed the person is male.
On the other hand, the cop looks more normal, he looks like a white male. Perhaps a white Hispanic, his hair is black. But his eyes don't look East Asian, but white. Maybe Mediterranean white, like Arab or south Italian, with that black hair. But still recognizably white. He could have a little black ancestry, or Indian, or something, but still, very predominantly white. Though no people are racially pure. But predominantly black men with straight hair must be extremely rare, except if artificially straightened with chemicals. Of course some people in India are extremely dark but have straight hair, but they are not called blacks, that is reserved for people with African origin. The very dark people of India are racially different from similarly dark people from Africa. Likewise some Australian aborigines are very dark and often have straight hair, but they are not typically called blacks, but aborigines. And of course very few of them have immigrated to America. Though in Australia they are often treated badly by cops, so it is similar. Quite a significant percentage of them are criminal, due to poverty, so many cops treat them all with suspicion, like many cops in America treat blacks. It is very sad, and of course in both cases it causes many of them to dislike police, and quite often not even report crimes. So Trump's advocacy of stop and frisk policies, like what has been banned in New York, but still practiced in some places, it is very dangerous. People should not be stopped when they are not doing anything suspicious, just because they look black or Hispanic or American Indian, or aborigine or something. That is not the way to improve community relations with cops.
So I agree with the general message of the cartoon, even if the specific situation is not realistic, the cop is close enough to recognize it is a camera, not a gun.

Stegelin's cartoon is not only racist but it is also very stupid.
