Jacquie, I'm curious about your view that marches and demonstrations don't lead to actual political change. Do you think that the Montgomery bus boycott, lunch counter sit-ins, and Freedom Rides also failed to lead to actual political change? That, say, the organizing associated with 1960s feminism didn't lead to actual political change?

Jacqueline Lipton

It's just a comic. I didn't draw it myself and I'm not endorsing any particular view of the political process. Like many of us, I occasionally do feel jaded about politics. I also have very strong views about gender and race equality in particular. But I only posted this in a spirit of fun which is why I tagged it as 'funny stuff' rather than under 'race', 'gender', or 'politics'. I apologize if it offended you. It was not my intent.

And I'm curious about the view that voting does lead to political change. "Your people" end up becoming more beholden to lobbyists and donors than voters.

Jacqueline Lipton

Have to agree with you there, James, at least that's often the case...
