NIGGER

Yeah, that’s a shocking title. It probably made you flinch reading it.  I was called that on social media a few years back. It wasn’t the first time and it probably won’t be the last.  I hadn’t engaged the person I only called her out on her use of the word. She responded with the vile word and then lied to all the other people that questioned her about it. She said that she was called a name first, and that was the justification. I then got into flame war about the power the word nigger has. I tried to explain, but some of the people I was engaged with did not understand. I tried to use comics to explain, not sure if it reached the ones it was meant for but I hope it gave ammo to those that are woke. I spend a lot of time on social media talking about social justice. Most of my work is about using history to teach, and connect people. This comic was really about teaching, so that people understand this issue from my (our) point of view. I reformatted it, so that it could be read easier.
