Followup From Netasha

I e-mailed Netasha about the situation re: "colored panther time," and she responded:

I am actually African American myself and was using it as a comedian on BET would make fun of our own people, it wasn't meant to hurt or offend anyone. ... [I]f there is more concern, go ahead and take down the comic, I do not want anyone to feel like they are being offended by the comic or having it relate to you in any way. My understanding's that it was a phrase coined by our own people to describe ourselves.

Since the comments last night's post received indicate that it did bug some people, I'll probably replace the strip with something a little less troublesome. The strip in question isn't part of the storyline, it's supposed to be a bit of lighthearted fun.

Thanks for your input, everybody. :) Sorry to have caused distress!
