Current strip deals with the burning actuality (HPL in the actuality, that's a scoop!). Well, to summarize, the World Fantasy Award trophy is an (ugly) lovecraft Statue. It was recently given to author Nnedi Okorafor; soon after she discovered that HPL was an (ugly) racist. Chaos followed: discution started to change the statue, HPL defensors counter-attacked, through expert S.T.Joshi's voice. We'll know soon if the awfull statuette will be kept, or replaced by something more politically correct.
I don't have a relevant opinion about all this turmoil... Racism is a complex subject, but I'm wondering if we should start examining all past artists'views on their society/time... Even if their opinions was their best (nightmare) fuel to write/compose/paint. I'm now a bit afraid to be checked for my own views.
Thanks to Bobby D. for corrections.
