2014.12四级阅读:一张图读懂万圣节之怕

画家阿尔卡拉斯在万圣节到来之际画了一幅漫画,讽刺了美国人害怕什么、媒体在谈论什么以及谈论不够多的是什么。

本年度美国人最害怕的事物有:非洲裔或拉丁裔的女性科技工作者(由于肤色较黑,夜里看不清)、美国街头警察(由于全部武装让人想到军国主义)、埃博拉、装扮成ISIS成员的中美洲的儿童(恐惧ISIS组织)、普通中美洲的儿童(怀疑他们是ISIS成员)。



Cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz made a cartoon just in time for Halloween that lampoons what scares Americans, what the media focuses on, and what isn’t focused on enough.

Alcaraz told BuzzFeed News the “scariest” or “most popular” Halloween costume gag is a seasonal time-saver used by many editorial cartoonists during this busy time of year.

“In my daily comic strip, La Cucaracha, I get to rely on this gag framework just about every holiday season — 2010’s version of this cartoon featured Salmonella Humpty Dumpty, a terror baby, the terrifying Governor of Arizona Jan Brewer, a brown person with frighteningly brown skin and real Jersey Shore costumes,” he said.

In 2014, he says, the fear mongering only increased. “This year brought the invisibility of female tech workers, the militaristic tactics of heavily armored American street cops, Ebola, of course, and Central American kids, costumed or not,” he added.

“As they say in Mexico, ‘TRIKO TRI’.”
