Minority Cartoonists Hold a “Sketch-In”

If you opened your newspaper today and noticed some of the comic strips seemed similar, it’s not unintentional.  11 minority cartoonists have banded together to protest the unequal treatment minority strips receive in many American newspapers.

Listen to NPR’s interview with Cory Thomas (or for those not audio-inclined, read the Washington Post article), and check out his awesome version of the strip.

Other strips participating include Herb and Jamaal, Housebroken, Cafe con Leche, The K Chronicles, Compu-toon, editorial cartoonist Tim Jackson, and Candorville.
