Black people in prison, likened to caged animals!

Super-duper not problematic!

I CAN'T POSSIBLY SEE THIS INSULTING ANYONE

Given the stuff I read on the news, I wouldn't be shocked if we found out that a bunch of black people in the US had been secretly imprisoned by the KKK or another racist militia.

Edit: Just read the full comic.

... Okay that has unfortunate implications up the wazoo

Even if the cartoonist had the most innocent of intentions it comes off as bafflingly ignorant.

"Hey, you can't just go around shooting animals in cages because they *might* be dangerous! What if we just shot human beings and said they 'looked dangerous'?!"

"...you don't read a lot of news, do you."

Hey, wow. This looks interesting, maybe this is a massively on the nose parable about the American prison system?

You know, I can't imagine that the author was *trying* for "Wouldn't it be terrible if we treated gorillas like we do black people?" but...

That's brilliantly done. Read it again without preconceptions of where you thought it was going.
