The “Racism Tree” resonated with me most. I think it captured, in one image, what this country must face in order to overcome systemic, endemic and pathological racism in this country. Unless the U.S. starts making racism ideology and practices part of the everyday conversation (much like Germany has done via reconciliation projects on WWII and Nazi rule) things will stay more or less the same. Americans have a short memory as has been proven time and time again…
Thank you for the amazing work you do!
It’s a big lift, that’s for sure. But it must be done. Thank you for commenting!
Doug Marlette, until his tragic death in 2007, was the creator and writer of the comic strip “Kudzu” as well as being an accomplished editorial cartoonist. In addition to earning a Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning, he had also published several books including two novels. Mr. Marlette once said : “Cartoons are windows into the human condition.” Your collection of “The Week’s Best Cartoons” are visual proof of those words. It is nigh onto impossible to choose a favorite this week, however “Covid Surge” by Tom Toles is most definitely a window into this week’s human condition. I must point out the excellent cartoon from the Pensacola News Tribune by Andy Marlette… a nephew, who at one time lived with and learned from Doug. These times we are trying to survive are made more bearable by the artistic efforts and offerings of the many talented editorial cartoonists. Thank-you!
Thanks for your thoughtful comment, Ellen. I didn’t realize he two Marlettes were related, but I should have guessed.
Bramhall’s my favorite in your cartoon posts (due to the caricatures of Trump). He’s not in this week’s line-up. You are forcing me to find him myself!!!
He’s on Twitter!
