Blacky Fun Whitey cartoon
The Blacky Fun Whitey cartoon was a cartoon published by The Fed on Friday February 20th, 2004 during Black History Month. It sparked the Columbia University Concerned Students of Color Protest. The cartoon was intended to highlight the reductionist effect of Black History Month on the subject of black history.
It was part of a series of cartoons called Wacky Fun Whitey by Ben Schwartz, who had already graduated at the time of the cartoon's publication.
The editorial board subsequently apologized.
