Although the point it proves is true how the black people are portrayed is just a tad racist.

"the point it proves is true"

um, no, because this comic is a strict strawman logical fallacy. A logically flawed argument cannot prove anything (the assumption could be true, but if the logic attempting to prove it is faulty, then it has proved nothing)

I agree with desuforeverlulz (cancer if I ever saw it)

Do you even know what a strawman actually is? Oh wait, you just googled the definitions.

It is not a strawman but rather a hyperbole. I can see why you'd assume it is a strawman however.

A strawman is a fallacy from attacking an argument that the opponent doesn't hold. This comic here applies to the black community, but in a limited way. The artist is exaggerating the portrayal of his point for comedic effect rather than illustrating how he really thinks the black community feels about brutality.

that's basically what a strawman argument is. you take the argument, and you distort it, exaggerate it, and misrepresent it so that it appears that you've refuted something, when in reality, you haven't. you've just invented something, and refuted it.

So basically it's the exact same thing that religious extremists do?
#51 to #40 - coolcalx (01/12/2013) [-]
why would you draw a distinction between religious extremists and nonreligious extremists? both groups are ridiculous.   
   
sounds like you're trying to start an argument, but I'm not interested in dealing with that. I have a chocolate yoohoo, and I'm gonna drink the 						****					 out of it and relax.

True. All extremists are pretty stupid.

And mind enlightening me on what a "yoohoo" would be?
#56 to #54 - coolcalx (01/12/2013) [-]
it's the chocolate drink of the gods
User avatar #32 to #29 - desuforeverlulz (01/12/2013) [-]
Plus it's out of the context of a debate, which makes me more inclined to use artistic vernacular rather than calling everything out in black and white terms.
#34 to #32 - coolcalx (01/12/2013) [-]
maybe so
User avatar #31 to #29 - desuforeverlulz (01/12/2013) [-]
Yes but then to say that would to be imply that every hyperbole is a strawman.
User avatar #33 to #31 - coolcalx (01/12/2013) [-]
I think you accidentally your sentence.

but no, I disagree.

here's what I'm reading from (I'm not an expert on logical fallacies. there may be another one that fits this case better. I do know that this is some form of logical fallacy, but I'm not 100% on specifically which one)
