cultural observations to propagate diversity
I recently attended a tacoma 'go local' community meeting to which the subject of cultural diversity was raised. The woman speaker brought to the attention of the crowd that we were all in fact of a Anglo/European descent, this was troubling, and that we should all strive towards bringing in other ethnic groups.
Probably the most infamous "White Man" Artist of all time. As a painter, and subsequent fascist/mass-murdering dictator this guy did more damage to the reputation of fair-skinned artists than anybody I can think of. Thanks alot hitler. Killing yourself was a step in the right direction. You suck.
2. Thomas Kinkade "Master of Light"known for his factory produced grandma fairyland lighthouses and dicknail cottages Mr. Kinkade has invaded every mall in the world. Nobody likes his paintings yet they are everywhere. Who is buying this crap? Mostly really old republicans or Insane white people ( that's redundant, i know). Indeed, Kinkade is to diversity what kryptonite is to superman.
3. Vincent Van Gogh
Likely the least evil "White Man" artist in our list; however, his reputation leaves much to be desired. When minorities think of famous "White" artists they're thinking of this guy cutting his ear off and sending it in the mail to his girlfriend. Did you know he also sucked on his paint brushes? Yes. He was completely insane. And eventually killed himself much like we predict Mr. Kinkade will someday when the money runs out.
Thus In Conclusion...

RR Anderson is one of the most curious characters in the UFO lore and the history of underground cartooning. He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the Tacoma Cartoonists Society.
