Another good one from Stephan Pastis.  This one warms the cockles of my African heart.  Click the image to be taken to a larger version at the "Pearls Before Swine" Web page.

I beg to differ with Zebra.  "Yum" is, indeed, a very African response!

Since you emphasize your African roots, and migrated to the U.S.later in life,
you also call yourself an “African American.”?

I've been known to do that, yes . . . to which my black friends reply, "No way, man! You'se a honky!"

So, what does zebra taste like?

When I was in middle school in the 90’s in a major city, I had one class mate who was white but recently immigrated from South Africa wondering why he did not qualify as African American, and one who was black from I forget which Caribbean island who would get very offended if he was called African American because he did not trace his roots from Africa. That was when I learned it was just a modern euphemism for older (non-pejorative) terms like ‘black’. John Wright points out that needing to specify ‘political’ correctness means we are talking about something other than correctness, i.e. falsehood.
