What I learned about free speech

The Charlie Hebdo situation has given me some valuable insight over the last week. It inspired me to produce my first ever cartoon for HipHopLives.net to illustrate what I learned. Like Charlie Hebdo, it’s immature and offensive, so enjoy…


This diversion into comedy is not my  forte obviously, but it was used to “illustrate” the bigger point. To me, comedy is not a strong enough format to drive home the importance of political engagement. There is nothing wrong with serious topics being discussed seriously. Sarcasm and humor are fine in the correct context. Otherwise, it’s just jokes and it doesn’t really mean anything.
