Racial Relations

 

Guys, we need to have a big powwow over racial relations.

The inspirer of this comic has been censored out (hence the black rectangle) and their appearance changed because I think it sounded like something that could be overheard from a clueless manager-type person, maybe in a sitcom like "The Office" or similar. But it was in fact a casual, non-work conversation. Sometimes people just set themselves up, no prompting needed. I don't recall the context of this snippet, because I had zoned out of the conversation.
Using a cultural term in a flippant manner when talking about race relations is not a good idea. I don't want to get overly political with this one, I just heard the conversation and thought it could be captured by comic. I feel like The New Yorker or Readers Digest could have a comic similar to this one, but I haven't seen one from them.
