    \Okay, enough with the “racism is bad” jokes in just about every strip. We get it.

    Aren’t you the least bit concerned that your work could be misappropriated by people who actually *are* racist and think you’re “one of them?” It happened to R. Crumb in the 90s when his satirical _Weirdo_ stories “When the N***ers Take Over America” and “When the Goddamned Jews Take Over America” appeared without his authorization on hate websites. The reason? The satires were such that you could barely tell them from the real thing.

    Please find other ways of mocking hatred than just having people _say_ bigoted things straight and unchallenged in strip after strip.

    Or, y’know, move on to other jokes.

    …Well, I thought it was lolarious–pardon me, it was a comical bit of tomfoolery, a droll bon mot I will have to share with my loved ones at our next convivial gathering.
