Mini Me

Once in a while my younger brother comes up with a gem. This is from his away message (with appropriate links added):

Ok so Aaron McGruder, the creator of the comic strip Boondocks, was listed in 100 People Who Are Screwing America. Why? Because his comic strip furthers Black stereotypes. I'm more outraged about Rudyard Kipling, who is clearly a racist, and Jonathan Swift, who advocates cannibalism.

So was White Man's Burden and so is Boondocks. I was hoping I didn't need to spell it out.

That book is ridiculous. Julian Bond is one of the 100. I can't respect any book that criticizes one of the finest black leaders America has today.
