I’m going to have to put Bish on front street for this one. Syrian children represented as a white girl with blond hair and blue eyes in a pink dress with pig tails? I mean. What.
Normally, editorial cartoonists resort to clumsy cultural stereotypes when drawing “furners.” This girl looks like she’s ready for nap time in American suburbia. C’com. It’s time for editorial cartoonists to up their game. Some appear clueless when drawing different nationalities and ethnic groups. Draw people how they look. Use the Google. Put in effort. It’s your job.
