Black Cartoonists Use the Same Joke to Make Their Point



Loyal blogreaders may remember a piece I did a while back about black cartoonists staging a protest in which several of them would draw the same strip on the same Sunday. The point being: Though editors and some readers may think their strips are interchangeable, they are not.

Here are a few of the strips which were published yesterday -- 11 cartoonists in all agreed to participate -- as part of that effort. Since humor is the most subjective art on the planet, I leave it to you to decide whether the strips are actually funny. But the point about differences in the strips seems well made (because I had to reduce these strips to make them fit on my blog, I suggest you click on the cartoon to see it in full, undistorted glory).
