No. I am not racist

Sigh. On another website I have been accused of being racist. Apparently some people decided that my guy-with-a-ski-mask was a black guy being shot by a white guy.

One guy is the “good” guy, the other is a criminal wearing a ski mask (like all stereotypical criminals wear).

I have to admit that it could look it was a black guy being shot by a white guy, so I apologize to anyone who was offended. It never occurred to me that the ski mask did not look like a ski mask. and I have altered the cartoon.

    Lol, don't bother entertaining the hyper-anti-racists. They'll always just find something else.

    I'm a person of color. The first thing that came to my mind when I saw that image was: "why is the cyclops trying to shoot the human?".
