Cloth Ears

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] Hat tip to @crntaylor who tweeted the story. He has a blog which only has about six posts and hasn’t been updated recently, but what’s there is very cool.

[Edit] I’ve corrected the dodgy punctuation in panel 3!

    Hi Rich! It’s Neill who came to the wedding last weekend. I have had just a little time to look at your comic strips so far! I LOVED the spider and the hoover one. Made me laugh out loud! Will look at more very soon :o)
