Clovis Cartoons makes jokes about Vybz Kartel (Photos)

The Jamaica Observer’s cartoonist, Clovis, continues what is seemingly an artistic vendetta against dancehall deejay and admitted skin ‘bleacher’, Vybz Kartel. In his latest cartoon, which references the recently concluded Boys & Girls Championships at the National Stadium, Clovis depicts Kartel with pale skin and holding an umbrella (to protect his bleached skin)

Adijah Palmer was ridiculed in an insensitive and tasteless cartoon by Clovis: a graphic bleached figure implying effeminate, gay rape in prison. All because of bleaching. If this had been a woman, human rights would have pounced on the issue. Sadly, male rape or rape in prison has little traction here. What's the problem with bleaching? Is it damaging to health as cigarettes, ganja, or liquor? How many are killed by men under the influence of bleaching? How many die of bleaching overdose? We spend millions each year to treat the effects of smoking and alcohol - emphysema, lung cancers, etc, rescuing families and DUI victims. Where is the media blitz to stop them? Cartoons ridiculing prominent smokers or alcoholics? We gorge on junk food, we inhale and ingest noxious substances - who cares? But bleaching gets us going. Why? The public health impact is not that of smoking and alcohol; "death by bleaching" is not here, yet it provokes venom that killer substances do not. Why?
