I regularly supply content for the Not Always Right website and its associated pages. As I produce so much content I rarely feature it here on my blog as if I did then it would be saturated with the same thing and I like to have a bit of variety on here. However two comics I produced recently had the theme of prejudice and ignorance, namely in the good ol' US of A.
I'm a Londoner born and bred and based in the UK. I am fortunate to have been to America more times than I can count, and every time it has been a wonderful experience. One thing I have noticed however is a prevalence of ignorance amongst Americans regarding their own history. They can tell you all about Kanye Kardashian but ask them about the Gettysburg address and their eyes glaze over. I admit this does not apply to ALL Americans, as there are plenty of idiots on this side of the pond too.
So when picking some stories to convert in to comic form, the below two stood out to me as amusing and poignant, especially as the world these days seems to be moving scarily towards segregation.
