"In 1994, Hatbag Productions created a stir on the University of Mississippi campus with the controversial and hilarious daily comic strip "Hippie and the Black Guy," which ran in The Daily Mississippian. It was a comic relief satire of the way in which modern Americans are guided by stereotypes. People who didn't "get it" may have huffed and puffed, but most people agreed that the two title characters deflated both conventional prejudices and the sacred cows of political correctness." -Chris Baker


"After all, some of today's most popular political strips began in college-- most notably, Doonesbury. Though Garry Trudeau's early installments are pretty typical sitcom fare, Doonesbury gradually broadened its base of concerns. This was natural in the 1960s, when Vietnam politics charged many campuses. But even in the 1990s, college strips like "Hippie and the Black Guy" have taken strong stands against stereotypes. "
