KEEF ON TOTALLY BIASED IN OCT!!

Great news!  Your most humble gentleman cartoonist is going to be interviewed on the FXX hit show Totally Biased with W.Kamau Bell next month!!  So psyched about this because Kamau and I go way back to my San Francisco days..even did a show with him at the now defunct legendary comedy club the Purple Onion.

Bad news!  I gotta pay for my flight out there.

Great news!  All I need are ten more subscribers to the Keith Knight Round Table Cartoon Subscription service!  Right now, members are getting the inside skinny on a national commercial the Knight family shot a few weeks back, that should be airing starting the next week or two.

Subscribe you fools!!  Right here.

EMAILS/LETTERS OF THE WEEK

Just wanted to say how much I love your work.  I’m pretty selective about the internet things that I join.  But I was more than happy to join your Round Table.  You’re one of the sites I visit every day in the hopes of something new.  Right now money is a bit tight, but I hope to rejoin at a higher level in the future when feeling a bit more flush.

I was so excited when I read one of your comics ages ago that referenced “The Squire” and other sites in the East Boston/Revere zone.  I’ve lived in the Metro Boston area for the past 28 years and currently live in Winthrop.  I was like, “Oh, I know exactly where he was.” (But not in a stalker-y way.)

Also, my mother loved the comic with the lap cat who likes to suckle.  She has a cat that likes to suckle her nightgowns.  When I sent her the link to your comic, she wrote back immediately (in all CAPS), “HOW DID YOU FIND THAT?!?!”

Anyway, thanks for doing what you do.

I just recently discovered your work. I work at the dollar general and I was moving some books around and I saw a comic for only a buck. Skeptical at first, I saw one of the critics comments “blah blah Calvin and Hobbes blah blah”. I immediately bought it solely because something said Calvin and Hobbes. You see, my favorite written/drawn material of all time is Calvin and Hobbes. Therefore I knew it was an alright idea to buy it. I read it that night, Chivalry ain’t dead is which book it was. Then I got on Amazon and bought The Complete K Chronicles. I’m halfway through it and I love it so far. I like your sense of humor, without regard and with a purpose. You’re a cool dude Keef, keep it up.

Dear Keith,  I hate the N-word.   I have used it in the past and regretted it.  Won’t do it again.  However listen to this true story.
My Son is  half Filipino half white.   He looks like an Indian (from India, not Native American).   He came home from school when he was 10 years old and said “Dad what’s N….r mean?”
“Why do you want to know”
“Someone called me that at school today”
“Who?!!!”
“Juvonte”
“Wait–isn’t Juvonte black?”
“yes”
“What did he say-what happened?”
“We were standing in line at lunch and Juvonte pointed to me and JD (half black /half white kid) and himself   said
‘I’m a n—r, your a n—r , and he’s a n—r-We all n—rs”
“Oh ” I said.
I tried my best to explain it all to him -but he was only 10 yrs old, and was nodding, but I could tell he was very confused.   He’s 17 now and understands it better.
Sometimes I just think God is laughing at me.  
I am aware of the privilege that white skin male  brings me .   How ever I get profiled too.  On election day 2012 at a Wendy’s  a guy leaned over to me and said–“Glad we’re getting our country back today aren’t you?
I said “Oh you voted for Obama too–awesome!”–I wish I had said that – I wasn’t prepared for it.  I said something like “no matter who our president is it’s our country”.

I am so ashamed of the Supreme Court Decision and  The Zimmerman case.  I agree with Maya Angelou when she says not only Black people but all people mourn these blatant racist moves/decisions. It hurts our country’s  “integrity”.

I wish I could do more to make our country less racist,  any suggestions? (no– sending black cartoonists $1000’s of dollars doesn’t count!)
Keep up the good work
-Best B.
(it has been scientifically proven that sending me millions of dollars will cure this nation of its racial ills. -kk)

Sir,
I respectfully submit that you’ve splattered my spleen. The line that kills me…..
“Question: Is it wrong to pay one of my sons’ schoolmates to kick his ass? Listen, I’d do it myself…” Holy God, I thought I was gonna hurl (lol!). Dude, you are too much. I wish you all the success you so obviously deserve. My name is Lee Davis, and I’m a (forcibly ported) fellow author on iBuzzle (from Buzzle originally). But I just can’t seem to get it together ‘cuz I just keep getting caught out there by those dazzlingly witty (and just plain snot-outta-nose funny) comics. I cain’ take it, mayne (lol!).
Respect…..
L.

PS: D.I.M. ? You killin’ a man wit’ that (lol!)

Hi, Keith,

I’m still enjoying your strip after all these years. Just found your anthology and love catching up with everything I missed.

I thought you’d like to know that your “Life’s Little Victories” bit inspired my Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year) message this year.  Thanks so much — I hope you enjoy!
B’vrachot (with blessings)

YOU KNOW THAT FEELING YOU GET WHEN YOU SUDDENLY SEE A GREAT PARKING SPOT, YOU PULL IN WITH NO TIME TO WASTE…AND THERE’S ALREADY TIME ON THE METER?
OR WHEN YOU HAVE TO SPRINT THROUGH THE AIRPORT TO ARRIVE AT YOUR GATE COMPLETELY WINDED BUT YOU MAKE YOUR FLIGHT AFTER ALL?
OR WHEN YOU FIND A JAR OF PEACHES FROM LAST SUMMER’S FARMERS’ MARKET IN THE BACK OF THE FREEZER – AND THEY TASTE JUST AS GOOD AS YOU REMEMBER?
OR MAYBE WHEN SOME JERK IN AN EXPENSIVE SPORTS CAR CUTS YOU OFF – AND THREE MINUTES LATER YOU SEE HIM PULLED OVER BY THE SIDE OF THE ROAD?
MOMENTS LIKE THAT ARE “LIFE’S LITTLE VICTORIES.” ANYTHING THAT MAKES YOU PUMP YOUR FIST AND SAY “YES!” IS A LITTLE VICTORY.  I’LL BET THAT EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US CAN THINK OF A LITTLE VICTORY OF OUR OWN.  SO, WHY DON’T WE BEGIN OUR ROSH HASHANAH, OUR NEW YEAR, ON A POSITIVE NOTE? I’LL INVITE EVERYONE TO TAKE A MOMENT AND JUST THINK ABOUT YOUR OWN LITTLE VICTORY. WHATEVER IT WAS; IT CAN BE SMALL – IN FACT, THE SMALLER THE BETTER. (FEW SECONDS PAUSE)…IN FACT, WHEN YOU’RE READY, JUST GIVE A LITTLE FIST PUMP AND QUIET “YES!” : )

(how cool is that?!!!-kk)
