For someone like me, who works in health and safety, it is the most frustrating thing in the world to see people confirm the negative stereotypes created by the media. Perhaps that’s why this fuss that the NAACP have kicked up irritates me so much. Just the slightest skim through their wikipedia entry gives ample evidence of how important such an organization is, especially when racism is far from eliminated. Stuff like this just gives the “Oh, playing the race card, eh?” crowd genuine ammunition, which makes more bullshit stories like these (warning: Daily Mail link) appear. Grrrrrr!!
[Edit] I’ve corrected the dodgy punctuation in panel 3!
