... the other Black experience

Sure it looks familiar. I specialize in prison-style artwork in that genre. Ex- My point being that i can afford to be as offensive as I want, as long as it forces people to think. The mushmouth character came about during reconstruction in response to the political power wielded by blacks 20 years out of slavery. The images then were used ore to villify, but over time they became a source of amusement used primarily in entertainment and advertising. I enjoy exploring the power in this face, and adding all of the violence that middle white america actually fears.
Again, I really don't give two shits about offending anyone. I'm fukcing offended by Young Joc and all the other "dirty South" rappers who sound like Buckwheat on a bad day.
It's funny I never heard anybody complaining about this shit but when someone tries to force people to look at the ugliness without the entertainment factor he gets looked at funny. Very strange indeed.
As far as I can remember, the N word was never used exclusively for Black folks that were perpetuating stereotypes.
There's also just the style of the characters which is reminiscent of a lot of other artwork I have seen that is considered racist...
I love your lowbrow touch Albert, you need to get published,I see that R. Crumb influence, I have been trying to do toons like that with the same slant and humor.
