Tolerants

This week’s new Dustinland comic is about a lot of things — mainly the debate on race we’ve all been having lately. Actually we’ve been having it for decades now, but the Trump era has really brought it to the forefront, which is probably the one thing we can thank him for.

So on one hand, it’s about our conversation on race and equality. But it’s also a conversation about the conversation, and how who can and can’t say what. Because I think ultimately, it’s hard to say what’s more frustrating: That we’re still debating what seems incredibly obvious (everyone should be treated equally in the U.S. and yet this still isn’t the way things are) or that we can’t even talk to each other anymore without being attacked, trolled, berated or cancelled.
