I am writing a multicultural family/kids comic book about streetfighting cats and dogs. Is it bad to use certain breeds of cats and dogs to represent different races/cultures? They've been doing stuff like that in cartoons and comics for years. I don't see anything wrong with that as long as they aren't racist ethnic caricatures.
Is this a bad idea to put in a comic book?
I'm writing a comic book about street-fighting cats and dogs, and they live in cat-and-dog towns. I want to make rabbits criminal and hail from a town that's a rabbit version of Brooklyn, NY- Bucktown. (Get it? Bucktown is a nickname for BrookIyn, and male rabbits are called bucks). I got that idea from some old hip-hop songs:
I want to have some "black" gangster bunnies attacking the cat-and-dog towns and going to these towns and acting like "dirty rabbits."
Is this idea offensive? I'm black-I don't see anything wrong with it.
