Just in case anyone didn't know that 'magic negro' was a term coined by Spike Lee:

wiki on Magical Negro wrote:
The magical negro (sometimes called the mystical negro, magic negro, or our Magical African-American Friend) is a stock character who appears in fiction of a variety of media. The word negro, now considered archaic and offensive, is used intentionally to claim that the archetype is a racist throwback, an update of the "Sambo" and "savage other" stereotypes.[1] The term was popularized by Spike Lee, who derided the archetype of the "super-duper magical negro"[2] in 2001 while discussing films with students at Washington State University[3] and at Yale University.

All shall heed the words of the "Magic Negro," this comic needs a black guy, or a person of some color, which we haven't seen yet. First appearance of a black, bitches be nuts, y'all.

even though pig is a pink pig i always thought he represented colored-people

but maybe he just decided not to draw a colored character because back then he never used gray colours so drawing a black person would be too difficult..maybe


Well you think that because of one of the beat poems Squig' did, where he said, 'pigga,' and no one else could say, 'pigga,' because no one else knows what it's like to be a pig.

Why, Blarg, have you not left yet? Have you failed to notice your own glaring stupidity?

Surely spouting non-sequiturs will soothe your inadequacy.

For proof that you're an idiot, off the top of my head, in addition to what's been shown before:

Well if you read it right, the first black character with the possibility of actually becoming a common character, like Squig, or Buddha. Not just one time appearance and never to be seen again, he doesn't have any common black guy/girl to use as a character all the time, just random ones.

I'm sorry, are you suggesting that you expect the Magic Negro to become a "common character?"

That makes your comment even stupider than the way Secret read it.

This particular joke's only funny once for the trippiness of a magic negro appearing and doling out wisdom.

But think about it. Imagine every one of his strips from now on including the Magic Negro. How awesome would that be?

Magic Negro wont make any more shows unless another comic is done in this style. If another character is added he'll be real small stuff. Lesser character than the two angels. Or maybe not. Does this make sense?

Magic Negro should replace every other Sinfest character.
