WireTap Magazine is welcoming a very hilarious Black cartoonist to its online pages, Keith Knight, who goes by "Keef". His K Chronicles "blend humor, social commentary and irreverence into a sharp focused look at life in America," WireTap reported last week. Here’s a sample cartoon about "that one Black kid." (Repost from Wiretap. Read more about Keith Knight here. ) Knight joins a great history of cartoonists of color who have very recently gained widespread popularity. Aaron McGruder, creator of The Boondocks is a good example. McGruder’s cartoon was turned into a show and epitomized the start of a new era for the angry Black cartoonist. So have these guys gotten funnier or is the climate finally warming up?
…that one Black kid, Keith Knight
