The 'joke' is based on social intolerance towards people of ethnicity joining clubs, events, etc...

The black smurf represents the black (african) human, and the other smurfs represent the typical racial majority of most american areas.

In times past (and unfortunately in some places in the present) a person of ethnicity joining a club or moving into a neighbourhood could cause people who are otherwise ignorant/intolerant to react in a xenophobic manner.

What I have attempted to do is to use the smurf characters in a microcausm fashion to highlight intolerance and bigotry in a jockular manner.

The subcutaneous joke is of course that in the Smurfs there was a cure; which if you stood back and took a hard look at might sujest that the author of the smurfs had unwittingly supplanted some very discreet intolerant views in his work.

Or in the alternative you could just enjoy the smurfs as being a liitle town of blue people, whose lives in no way are a reflection of modern society and their views.

Has anyone told you that once you explain a joke it is no longer funny?

Now you need to make a new MArtoon

You need to see more of America, Mar. That said, American GNAP smurfs were never black - they were purple.

Air Power Vector, for the man that has climbed to the peak and wants to look down on the beaten and defeated opponents left in his wake.
