Brent Brown’s March 6 cartoon raised the ire of some readers who found the visual reference to the Ku Klux Klan disrespectful and “appalling,” even in the satirical context. “I think it is extremely disturbing that the KKK is referenced in a comic strip as though that organization’s history is in any way amusing,” one reader wrote. Brown told Xpress that there is “nothing racial about it” — the comic explores the absurdities possible within everyday language and situations (such as a KMart closing down). Are some situations too heavy to treat so lightly? Does freedom of expression have a social limit? What do you think? Let us know in the comments field.
