dartmouth community responds to comic strip


The above ad was recently published as a reponse from several concerned communities at Dartmouth to the racist comic that appeared last week in The Dartmouth. As you can see, the ad reprints the cartoon, provides a breakdown of its offending elements, and is sponsored by a large cross-section of the Dartmouth community.

Too bad the The Dartmouth charged them $437.40 to print the one-page ad. You think they'd give them a break, considering that it was The Dartmouth that made the idiotic mistake of printing the damn comic strip in the first place. Apparently, The Dartmouth even claimed they were doing them a favor by not charging a copyright fee for re-using the comic. Ridiculous. (Thanks, Hillary.)
