    To sum it up:

    People who see the cartoon as racist think that those who don't see it as racist are racist.

    • Cartoon of Serena. A few tweaks and it'd have been less offensive. Art Director should have asked illustrator to not exaggerate her lips. Then all ok.shapesalad

    • You're saying it's not OK to caricaturise a black person if you pronounce their features, because it's racist. Listen to how ridiculous that is.set
    • Just as black comedians constantly rip on white people, if a white comedian rips on black people it's racist.set
    • Regardless of the past, that shit is ridiculous and needs to stop if we're ever going to live in real equality. You're holding that shit back with your views.set
    • Unfortunately it's not all in the past, there are still huge numbers of racist white people. Probably more now than there were 10 years ago.yuekit

    • Did a single person in this 170 note comments thread actually say you can't caricature black people?yuekit
    • Just don't do it in a way that large numbers of people (including blacks themselves) find offensive. After all maybe they have a point.yuekit
    • @ yuekit as far as i know nobody wrote that. some people have the Trump Syndrome...inventing facts, distorting words...LOL!oey
    • and yes you can caricature black people, minorities, whatever. the thing is how to do it and not to fall in racial stereotyping.oey

    • White men have been depicted in cartoons here in Oz with tiny cocks. A caricature exaggerates every physical feature...anyone who takes offence has issues.BusterBoy
    • dude. you asked me if i think it's racist. then you guys get riled up by my opinion. why did you even bother asking.pango
    • ^oey
    • Let’s all ask Serena what she thinks.Ramanisky2
    • First thing I thought of is that it looked like a mad native from a bugs bunny cartoon, even looks like she has a bone or a spike through her nose, so yeah_niko
    • ...Artist could be a total dickhead, or just a shitty caricaturist._niko
    • I'm not riled up by anyone's opinion. Feel free to think whatever the fuck you want! Doesn't preclude me from having an opinion though.BusterBoy

    I've been on the Nevada 375 a few times in the last couple years and always stop and look for QBN stickers (and ALWAYS FORGET TO BRING SOME)...

    The Extra Terrestrial Highway signs need our love! I hope one of you beat me to it. :)

    • Given they appear to be vinyl, I'd hope not, because when it inevitably peels away it'll just become another bit of non-biodegradable trash in your desertNairn
    • I could cut you a wee QBN stencil which you could use to paint through with some biodegradable paint... heck, wet ochre mud, caveman style, on a rock..Nairn
    • oh quit your whining... the aliens will take care of any and all detritus that invades their roadwayPonyBoy
