      And now we can say without sarcasm: This cartoon is [funny because it’s] RACIST!

    4. BeakerBoy says:

      Why can’t we be like medical students, who see the whole world in shades of Gray’s Anatomy?

    5. Matt says:

      I bought a Black’s Law Dictionary first semester. I used it once and have no idea where it is now. What I really want is Scalia’s 1787 Websters.

      I’ve always wondered how Property profs got away with talking about blackacre and whiteacre.

    13. Philippa (PTLaw) says:

      David is cool!

    14. Spreague says:

      Reminds me of the anecdote where a paralegal used the “Find/Replace” feature on Word to make an old-timer partner’s brief more PC and remove certain colloquial terms. The end result? The brief cited to “African American’s Law Dictionary.”

      I am completely opposed to racism. In fact, I am so non-racist that I don’t even separate the whites from the coloreds when I’m doing my laundry.

      marry me?

    19. Redking says:

      This cartoon requires strict scrutiny.

    20. David Mills says:

      WishIwasAnonymous & 1L: Unfortunately, Ohio law forbids Courtoonist marriage.

    21. Anomalous says:

      This cartoon is RACIST! because it fosters a negative stereotype that all black law students are so stupid that they don’t know what Black’s Law Dictionary is and because every white law student knows that “Black’s Law Dictionary” contains subliminal racist messages when you flip through it real fast and coded instructions for law professors and judges about how to be RACIST!
