Satirical Coloring Book Called “I’m So Sick Of White Guys” Pokes Fun At Trump, Jeff Sessions And More
We stumbled upon this new adult coloring book called ‘I am So Sick of White Guys,’ which is satirical, but of course that’s escaped some folks (who have no sense of humors anyway so why should we be surprised). The authors, who are also white guys, say they “do not hate white guys” but that hasn’t shielded Seattle-based authors Jim Corbett and Tim Jones from angry criticism….
The coloring book, which was illustrated by Steve Hartley, features cartoons such as “The Devolution of Man: From Man to Klan” and a disclaimer which states that the authors cannot be held responsible for “mental or emotional suffering” experienced by such groups as “white supremacists” or “misogynists and crotch-grabbers” among others.
“When far right cartoons depicted President Obama as a Nazi or as a monkey, the right was completely silent, but make a joke about white guys, and the right-wing blogosphere erupts,” said Jones, who reported feeling “amazed” at how rapidly the angry posts erupted on alt-right forums like Breitbart, The Drudge Report and Stormfront. Corbett was equally surprised by the “tidal wave of enraged comments”, ranging from charges that he and Jones must be racist against whites and “thinly veiled threats” against their safety.
Peep some of the tweets below:
While clearly the alt-right is less than pleased, the authors reported a “dramatic rise in book sales” in the first 24 hours. They are donating ten percent of the book’s profits to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which devotes its efforts to opposing hate groups.
