    One character drawn in a really racist way, is, of course, bad enough, and a big ol Yikes. But I’m almost surprised that the shell game man isn’t himself drawn an ethnic stereotype.Report

      I struggled with what to do about some of the art work. In some of the cases I simply don’t run it. I have modified/excised a few where possible.

      It’s almost entirely stylistic. In some of the ones that are not getting run as-is, the black character is in fact the most sympathetic. But that gets lost when depicted in that manner.

      This one kind of slipped through. My apologies to anyone offended.Report
