    Robert Crumb is a very honest person, both in his artwork too honest for most , and in his observations on society, and so it is very enjoyable to listen to him speak on any number of things Are there socially progressive blacks or women who find Crumb s work compelling That is perhaps dangerous to answer since I am entirely descended from Europeans and have a penis There is a certain type of philosophy which states that I, as I appear to be, cannot ever enter into the shoes of an African Am Robert Crumb is a very honest person, both in his artwork too honest for most , and in his observations on society, and so it is very enjoyable to listen to him speak on any number of things Are there socially progressive blacks or women who find Crumb s work compelling That is perhaps dangerous to answer since I am entirely descended from Europeans and have a penis There is a certain type of philosophy which states that I, as I appear to be, cannot ever enter into the shoes of an African American woman Well, then But I think we can give a generous interpretation to Crumb and say that he is reflecting, as any artist should, our society for our critical appreciation if we are upset, we need to change our society and Crumb is no Tom Wolfe he is an avowed socialist and progressive, though admittedly a misogynist Personally, my feelings concerning North American society have never beenadequately expressed, at least aesthetically, than by this artist and when he points out that the popularity of Garfield is so maddening that one can barely resist the urge of shaking people who like it and asking them, Why do you like this I feel this way about really everything U.S citizens enjoy , one can only sigh and nod Nevertheless, it s always heartening to know, even if you do not learn anything from them, that there are others out there as disgusted with the backwardness and rampant anti intellectualism of life in the United States as you are yourself
