    LOL. Consider it a public service. Not for you but for all who read these messages.

    Well, then come to Florida. You can kill all the wild hogs you want. No bag limit. They're a real problem around here.

Do you deny the majority of the looters aren't black? I'd like to see your evidence.
    Never ask an honest question if you're not prepared to receive an honest answer.

    First, the cartoon focuses on the looters more than the nonviolent protesters. Yet the looters represented a tiny fraction of the overall population of Ferguson, if they were even residents and not people from out-of-town. And where are all the political cartoons about the Ferguson library that has become a refuge of peace? Or some of the churches? Or some of the residents' homes? I guess that doesn't fit the corporate media's narrative of the big scary black man.

    Second, I wonder how many political cartoons Mr. Cagle has done exposing the hopelessness, despair, and righteous anger that pervades the black community. Does he have the slightest idea what it's like to know that one could be the next Michael Brown? Or Eric Garner? Or Trayvon Martin? Does he know what it's like to have his resume rejected not because of his lack of credentials but because of his name? Or be less hireable than a white person with a criminal record, even if he is lucky enough not to have fallen into the prison-industrial complex? And none of this gives any deference to the system of power that keeps blacks "in their place," simply because you and I will never ever be able to truly understand the powerful psychological toll it has on its targets.

    If you choose to not see this, then you choose to understand none of the issues surrounding race at all. But, you have the privilege of doing that. Lucky you!

    You want to deflate the government while keeping the system as is? Interesting.

    I might have known your response would make absolutely no sense.

    If you truly are a Conservative who wants to shrink the Government system, hold Public Officials servants accountable for their actions. That's simple enough, no?

    It conveyed rather well what actually happened minus burning buildings down.

    I love your use of the buzz words though. Hopelessness. Despair. Righteous Anger! and corporate. No leftist screed is complete without "corporate".

    Blacks keep voting for Democrats. Is it any wonder they are "hopeless"?

    You keep barfing up the same horse**** platitudes about "leftists" and "Democrats," yet continuing to do so does not make them less stupid.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    It is true that nothing I write here can make leftists, Democrats, or the 90+ percent of blacks who vote for them any less stupid.

    But I was too polite to point their stupidity out.
