Profiled in NYC
As I start my 1-month long sojourn into full-time cartooning here in New York, I can't help to notice how many times I have been profiled in the last 24 hours. I'm staying in the apartment of a white associate, in one of most least diverse apartment buildings that in the city. All of the doormen seem to think that I don't belong in the building and always question my motives for even stepping foot in their locale. The most frustrating part of all of this is that ALL of these doormen are ethnic minorities, just like me. Clearly, these fellas don't have mirror in their own homes. Somehow I believe that this latest episode in my life will make its way into my comic strip "Cafe con Leche." I'll keep you posted.
