Was the 'spotting blacks' thing really offensive? I'm honestly asking cause I'm in white privilege land and have no idea. If so...why?

Edit: whoops spotting not spotted

The author is talking with himself, with a younger and naiver alterego, trying to mend his old ways...

I find this fucking sweet...

Epic moment of self reflection. This is going to be good.

Political correctness reminds us that certain groups cannot be made fun of.

It's completely fine to play up on just as damaging white stereotypes though. After all, it's not like they're harmed by being called dumb, lazy, and degenerate. Only blacks are harmed by that.

Equality!

Tat, please stop the self-flagellation over things you wrote years ago.

You have no one to apologize to, Tat. You wrote something that you thought was funny, let it go. I certainly hope no one in real life is telling you "REMEMBER THAT BLACK JOKE YOU MADE TWELVE YEARS AGO? I'VE NEVER FORGOTTEN IT YOU MISOGYNISTIC PRICK".

And in all seriousness, I see no one on these forums saying that, and I've seen no one on all the internet that still talks about this comic who say that. I certainly hope this isn't something someone in real life is telling you. If it is, you need to re-evaluate who your acquaintances are.

Really, if this is the specter that haunts your dreams, the fact that you had a different sense of humor a decade ago, then you might as well delete your archives now. You don't have to punish yourself over a black joke that you told on the internet of all places.

Has Tat become... a father? Or enrolled as a Big Brother? If so, I could totally see him squirming about the jokes he made over the last 13 years.

It's like making movies full of fart jokes - then having to explain to Junior it's not really appropriate to shout "Pull My Finger!" before letting one rip.
Or a woman chaser who suddenly becomes protective and conservative, when his own daughter reaches sexual maturity.

Oh such a fun thread! It's nice to hear a different kind of complaining though.

I don't think Tat thinks he owes it to anyone. He's just doing a story with the little kid that happens to be self reflective of what he thought passed when he was younger. He's not mending ways. He's changed and looking at the change. I'm sure he would delete it if it was that way. But instead, it's the growth and change and acknowledgement of that change that makes Sinfest a work that has matured with Tat. If he tried to pretend like he hadn't changed, that'd be the real pressure to fit in to the status quo. This is Tat showcasing himself. I love it.

Ha! Actually, the comic that Heretical Rants put up reminds me of when I first read that comic. I actually started reading "Sinfest" after it was advertised on "Megatokyo" and I was trying to get my mother to read it.

I was reading that same comic HR posted, laughed, and against my better judgement, showed it to my mother. She was not a fan. Razz She didn't chew me out or anything, but she just said "I don't like the fact that he made God swear, and that is probably the most racist thing I have ever seen."

It still makes me laugh, but it is pretty nice that Tat has mellowed out quite a bit. In fact, it seems like he has been showing more respect to God in these later strips. In my opinion he kind of turned God into a more no-nonsense-my-image-(even if it is just my finger)-shall-not-be-seen kind of character and instead parodies the believers.

I imagine he doesn't really need to be syndicated by daily papers now, but I just remember how he kept the "renegade count" (Last tally was 11, I think)? and I can't help but think that he would probably have more of a chance than ever to get picked up if he did so choose.

I'm very interested to see where this goes.
