The Boondocks by Aaron McGruder for March 12, 2002
Huey: While these awards recognize embarassiing black entertainment of 2001, we felt it necessary to dishonor those whose works from the past have gone unrecognized. For many years, this actor played the biggest sissified, gutless, emasculated cornball ever to step foot on a spaceship. Today, we are proud to enter him into the most embarassing black person hall of fame... Congratulations to Levar Burton for his portrayal of Geordi Laforge on "Star Trek: The Next Generation"! Caeser: This is so wrong...
The visor that gives him sight causes him constant pain that couldn’t be alleviated without compromising the effectiveness of the visor. He managed to be the smartest organic life on the ship. He didn’t have a choice to not be blind until Riker has the power of the Q and gives it to him. He felt that it wasn’t right. The fact that he still puts out a positive attitude and keeps his composure without making excuses and getting his job done before deadlines right next a warp core about to explode makes him a badass to me. Maybe he could have been more assertive. As a senior officer, he could have made more of his opinions heard. I’ll give Aaron that much.

… or maybe I’m just a Trekkie taking a comic written by a Star Wars fan way too seriously …
