    Little Eva is half Irish?

    Whiteish covers them…and most of us.

  • Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman

    Uh oh. Sounds like Skye is reverting back to her LibTard-ism.

  • Kafiroon

    Then what is a “Black Irish” I heard reference to when I was a yungun? No one would ever explain and I forgot about it.

    • Fox2!

      There are Irish who have very fair, almost literally white, skin, and jet black hair. By tradition, they are descended from survivors of the Spanish Armada.

      Unfortunately, all of the Spaniards who made it to shore were slaughtered by Elizabeth’s forces before they could have established relationships with any Sheilas.

      • Scott Ragland

        ‘Black Irish’, along w somewhat rarer ‘Black Scot’, sprung from thousands and thousands of sailors and soldiers of the Spanish Armada invasion of 1588, destroyed in a series of catastrophic storms which drove the fleet from Dover northward.

        Shipwrecked up and down eastern and western Scot coastlines, the vast majority of survivors landed along northern and western coast of Eire.

        In Eire, if you ain’t cream-skin blonde or pale-ass ginger, you likely are ‘Black Irish’.

      • Scott Ragland

        Never heard that before; could you link me a source for the claim that ‘all’ were ‘slaughtered’ by Brit forces, which were, according to every source encountered in my own reading, concentrated along the Channel, where Brit-intercepted Spanish comms said the Armada would land.

        The idea that a British monarch, esp E the 1st, would spread precious trained and armed soldiers to the least-regarded, least-prized, utterly-despised Eire is rather hard to believe, if you will pardon my perspicacious nature.

        If no Armada survivors made babies, from whence -do- ‘Black Irish’ hail?

        Thus, a source or link would be fascinating.

        Thanks much for your consideration!
        God Bless you and yours, Fox2!
        😉

        • Steve

          I recall reading some time ago that the British conquered Ireland essentially to force the Irish to stop raiding them. If true, that makes having a lot of soldiers in Ireland a lot more reasonable, but I am by no means knowledgeable in that particular segment of history, so take it with a grain of salt.

        • Ol' Country Boy

          I agree somewhat with Scott. It I my understanding that the remains of the Armada was forced, under adverse conditions, to circle around the northern edge of Erie where the many shipwrecks deposited Catholic sailors along the shores of a Catholic country. The sailors were accepted and assimilated. Note the Spanish surnames of many of the Irish politicians.

    • pyrodice

      It’s a coffee, isn’t it?

      • PaulS

        Well mostly whiskey, but the coffee makes it look black… 😉

    • Larry

      The way I heard it…when the Spanish Armada attacked England and was swept away in a massive storm, some of the ships and their crews found their way to Ireland. The Spanish sailors remained in Ireland, married, and raised families. These Spanish/Irish offspring are referred to as Black Irish.

      Of course, a Google search on “black irish” will give you several hits a lot of interesting reading.

  • Shonkin

    Oh yeah! This carries me back to the very early days of the strip when Jan the flaming liberal brought in Latosha from the NAACP to explain to Damon that he couldn’t possibly be Black and conservative. He said he was more cafe au lait, and she said the NAACP had a color chart.

    • Roland Deschain

      I remember that strip. It was hilarious!

  • DogByte6RER

    Skye … spewing more cow chips.

    • Ozymandius

      She can’t help it. Liberals are basically ten pounds of crap in a five pound bag.

      • Pamela

        Correction. Liberals are the X-Large women that think they look cute in their 12 year old daughter’s yoga pants. I know you’ve seen them in the markets or walking on the street.

        • Old Codger

          Reminds me of a time when I was putting gas in my car. I was standing there waiting for the tank to fill when a “large” lady (5XL minimum) in international orange spandex opened her passenger side door, bent down and proceeded to start collecting trash from the floorboard. The first thing that popped into my head was, “Damn! Lady! Watch where you’re pointing that thing!”

          I love big women. Been married to one nigh onto 50 years. But not every gal has an ass for spandex. You know?

          • John M.

            Sounds like one of the ‘girls’ at the Ice Cream Parlor a nomth or so ago…

          • Pamela

            It is rather bothersome when you can read the butt tattoo through the stretched thin material.

        • Too Tall

          Pamela: You can read the tattoos in Braille at 100 yards.

          • Pamela

            EWWWWW

  • kadaka

    So Eva and Hugo’s dad is also half Irish?

    Someone’s getting ready for the throw down. EXCLUSIVE: ‘We prepare to stop these murders by any means necessary.’ Black Lives Matter leader declares war on police and group is ‘training our people to defend our communities’ in Black Panther style armed ‘patrols’

    BLM is making their own militia/police force for protecting their own communities, Pantyfa, the domestic terrorist group, has declared an “autonomous zone” in Seattle where they rule. I need more gun parts.

  • Too Tall

    Little Eva is 25% Irish via Skye. What does Sam know about Eva’s father that guarantees another 25%?

    Rules out ‘Toly and Tucker as the father.

    By the way Skye, as Zed mentioned long ago, white is not just OK, it’s awesome. Then again, so is each individual and every race, for we are all created in God’s image.

    • JTC

      Exactly. Hence my vague Eva question at the top.

      And confirming the wonderfully inclusive -and accurate- “whiteish” race(s) by which this country was built, and on which it seems certain to rely to save it -again- in the very near future.

    • Pamela

      What happens when the sperm donor shows up at the DD to see the kids?

  • Too Tall

    Apropos of everything else, HBO Max has removed Gone With the Wind. Hattie McDaniel was the first black actress nominated for and to win an Oscar, in a performance that remains a tour de force even today. (Best Supporting Actress, 1939)

    Destroying culture and ignoring history is no way to go through life.

    Also, if you haven’t listened to the 1 hour 28 minute conference call (read: profanity-laced tirade) among Mayor Groot and the 50 Aldermen in Chicago, it is pure comedy gold (if you can get past repeated use of the F-Bomb as all seven parts of speech).

    • PaulS

      “ Hattie McDaniel was the first black actress nominated for and to win an Oscar, in a performance that remains a tour de force even today. (Best Supporting Actress, 1939)”

      Holy Schitt!!!! Before the 1960’s?!?!?!?! No way! 😉

      • John

        It is a long running Leftist myth that the “Black Community” only made progress after they were liberated from Jim Crow. They had a diverse and dynamic culture of their own in Hollywood and gave us many wonderful and indeed sometimes awesome, moments in film.
        What many don’t realize is that LBJ and the Welfare State destroyed that culture by destroying the Black Family.
        Fathers _do_ count for something.

      • Too Tall

        If you appreciate fine cinema, Ms Mc Daniel alone makes Gone with the Wind worth watching.

    • John M.

      “Destroying culture and ignoring history…” is how every Communist takeover starts!

    • Old Codger

      Kinda makes me glad I don’t go to movies any more (hearing is so bad that, even with hearing aids I can’t follow the dialog).

  • WayneM

    Meanwhile BLM are advocating for the destruction of the nuclear family, the abolition of capitalism, disarming & disbanding police… plus some gender-warping stuff to appease the LGBTLMNOP crowd… so much Marxism, so many useful idiots.

  • Calvin

    I’ve always questioned the idea “I’m proud to be black.” You are what you are. Why would you be proud of something you had no control over. Now if you want to say that are a success in your field of endeavor, whatever it may be, then we can drink to that. Just not because of the melanin content of your skin.

    • nonncom

      Amen, brother….then again, there are those today who are ashamed to be white….different side of the same coin….”Flush out your headgear, new guy….If I’m gonna’ die for a word, my word is poontang”….one of the best lines in the history of film….

      • John

        Ashamed to be white is the whole dynamic of the Church of Woke.
        And there is some truth to it. The “White Left” is well aware of their racial prejudice, and have been taught that it is genetic, that they cannot absolve themselves of their original sin.
        Of course any sane person knows that racial prejudice is indoctrinated and therefore can be unlearned, but the Woke, as an Issue of Faith, deny this.

        • JTC

          Genetic vs. indoctrination a/k/a Nature vs. nurture?
          Both I think.

          Like other diseases physical or mental, certainly the bloodline is a determining factor in prejudices good or bad, based on the historical reasoning for it. Which history actually applies much more to the blacks than the wokes, and the indoctrination much more so to the woke along with a high incidence of mental issues of self-hate and God knows what other learned thought/behavior controls absorbed in those academic camps.

          Racism is rampant among them both, though they fail to grok the irony. At least blacks come by their hate honestly, while that of the woke is intentionally planned and weaponized to destroy anything and everything…including ultimately their own ignorant selves of course.

          In the meantime the woke are by far the most dangerous.

    • Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman

      Thank you! I was trying to formulate something along that line, but I couldn’t get it to come out right, so I deleted it. Thank you!

  • Saaruuk

    The left wants a race war…..and wants it desperately. In their fevered minds, it’s the ONLY thing that can possibly bring down Trump in the November elections. And they are more than willing to sacrifice hundreds if not thousands of innocent lives to accomplish this goal.

    The level of absolute disgust I have for the left cannot be quantified numerically or verbally.

    • nonncom

      It’s all summed up by a bumper sticker I saw….”Wash your hands like you just shook hands with a democrat”….

      • Wood

        That is AWESOME!!!

    • Too Tall

      Having had a front row seat for Yugoslavia and Somalia, the price tag for the war they want is 40,000,000 to 100,000,000 dead Americans.

      Oh yeah, and Progtard DildoCrats become extinct.

      • Scott Ragland

        40,000,000-100,000,000 dead to MAGA?

        Virtually all dead are globalista elitista, along with their tools and useful idiots?

        Where do I sign up?

    • Scott Ragland

      ‘…hundreds -of- thousands of lives.’

      sorospelosischumerwhitmernewsomginsburgsotomayorkaganCJUS roberts will not hesitate to escalate their insurrection to millions of deaths.

      They know Trump has them in an existential headlock, and their vision is going to grey around the edges.

      This is their last chance to hold power, perhaps forever.

      They will stop at nothing, this time.

      • John

        I have great doubt about the “forever” thing.
        Leftism is a disease of the Privileged Elite who literally don’t know or care about the origin or meaning of the wealth they wield.
        Sadly, although this can be overcome by a proper education, said proper education is in very short supply in wealthy circles that depend on perpetual financial inheritance.
        The school of hard knocks, that is to say actually earning a living, usually vaccinates most of us from such silliness.
        The Elite have their place, being the custodians of Capital, but periodically they get too big for their britches and inspire a Populist Revolt.
        Presently that Revolt is being headed by PDJT, but is certainly not dependent on him, and that will prove to be a surprise to the “Never Trumpers” who think they will return to their Elitist Nirvana on his removal.

    • DogByte6RER

      How ironic … looks like Charlie Manson might just get his Helter Skelter race war … just 50 years later and a couple years after he assumed room temperature!

  • TOXIC DASTARDLY DAN

    I Have a Dream, that someday a man will be judged not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character.

    But I guess that’s old fashioned, and anyway, the guy who said that was a republican.

    • nonncom

      When King said that, he was foreseeing people like Ben Carson and Condaleeza Rice, not the thug that was eulogized yesterday….

      • John

        And it appears that said thug probably died, not of the cop who abused him, but of respiratory arrest due to his abuse of fentanyl and methamphetamine. Effectively he was a victim of his own culture.

    • PaulS

      “ someday a man will be judged not by the color of his skin, but by the content of his character.”

      THAT is exactly what they are most afraid of. The judgement shall be HARSH! And the penalty SEVERE!

      • JTC

        Of course the character thing has little to do with skin color.

        Always tried to follow that rule. Which is why I thrived in the pawn business which generated commerce and loyalty with all colors, and all characters…a high percentage of which looked a lot like me,some good some bad.

        Much like it is in the streets right now. Correct they do NOT want the focus to be on King’s latter reference, or else their poster chilluns could never be Trayvon, Michael, and George.

    • Larry

      and assassinated.

  • Henry

    For the life of me, I can’t figure out who that is in the first panel. The hairstyle is way too short for Skye, and the skin seems a little too dark. My best guess would be Jo trying out a new persona.

    • Chris Muir

      Skye.

      • Larry

        Chris, who is Becky McManus that you mentioned in the strip a couple of days ago? The only recent reference I found for her was in England related to a car accident.

        • Chris Muir

          A character I created that harassed Sam when she was 13. Perhaps her bete noire.

      • Henry

        Well, I dig the new hairstyle!

  • ottersmith

    The names (in English, I don’t know about other languages) for human skin colors and for other things are only occasionally the same. I got into trouble in first grade for insisting that I was between peach and salmon, white was the color of my paper. Yes, I know there’s now a box of “skin color” Crayons. Or was.

  • Browncoat57

    I recall being taught that, as far as light and the color spectrum are concerned, ‘black’ is the absence of all colors and ‘white’ is the presence of all colors.

    Jus’ sayin’…

    • Wood

      And in cinema, good guys wear white and bad guys wear black. I no longer pay much attention, but I bet our pop culture is chock full of things the leftists don’t understand. Gun and boxing/fighting terminology fills our lexicon. The fools.

      • PaulS

        Oh I dunno, Boss Hogg – bad, Batman- good, many more examples but I’m lazy 🙂

    • ottersmith

      I knew a guy in boot camp whose skin was almost clear, an extreme form of albinism. He was pink. A light exposure to sun made him a bright pink. How he convinced a recruiter to sign him up, I don’t know (maybe he was drafted and chose the Marines.) After months in boot camp, Honorable Discharge, physically incapable of serving.

      • Henry

        There’s always the submarine service!

    • John D. Egbert

      Interestingly, to a photographic light meter Caucasoid and Negroid skin tones register identically for setting exposure levels. Hence, whenever a form asks for “Race,” I always respond “Human.” “Caucasoid,” “Mongoloid,” and Negroid” are ethnicities – not races . . .

      • JTC

        “Ethnicitist Cops Must Go! Down With Ethnicitism!”

        Doesn’t really roll out of the bullhorn does it?

        Of course the thugs and pantifas won’t be able to say it anyway.

        A swing and a miss, John. But maybe that was your plan? 😉

        • John D. Egbert

          One of my pet peeves: there is only one sapient race on this planet — Human.

          Others include: (1) Pronouns have gender, of which there are three (Masculine, Feminine, Neuter); people have sex, of which there are two (Male, Female).

          (2) People are referred to as “Who,” not “That.”

          (3) Individual Humans are referred to as He/His or She/Hers — never as They/Their.

          There are many more. I truly detest the ongoing bastardization and bowdlerizing of the world’s most precise language.

          • MasterDiver

            There was an episode of the old “Invaders” series where one of the aliens is masquerading as a Black politician, and one of his aids suspects something isn’t right because his palms are black, not pink. When the alien confronts him, and asks him if he is truly loyal to his race, the man answers, “Negro? Or Human?”

            Zar Belk

    • Brent Dotson

      I’m not sure that “absence” and “presence” is quite correct. Black absorbs all the colors of the spectrum and white reflects all of the colors of the spectrum. It always kind of amused me that an orange absorbs all of the colors except that part of the spectrum that would make up orange. In a way, an Orange is anything but orange since that is the color that the fruit rejects. Of course, that’s just me putting my own weird spin on things.

      • Henry

        Right. People think that green is the color of growing things. What’s actually going on is that plants accept as useful energy all the wavelengths EXCEPT green, which they reject!

  • Steven Dallman

    I have contributed for a number of years and would like to again this year, but the link to levels does not work. Can you provide another route to get there.

    • Chris Muir

      Steven, can you explain what you did so I can fix this. Did u scroll down below the toon and select a level? Did u click on the toon and go direct to the fundraiser page? Or, do you get dbd via email and try from there?

      • PaulS

        Chris, the strip at the top of the main page links to the fundraiser, but once on the comments page it does not.

        • Chris Muir

          Thanks, Paul! Yeah, it’s always been that way, the software doesn’t support it. I appreciate y’all soldiering through the format. From now on, I’ll make the first comment of the day with the direct link embedded! 🙂

          https://www.daybydaycartoon.com/2020-fundraiser/

      • Henry

        If you get DBD via RSS reader, you never see the homepage. (Luckily, I already know that, so I know how to get it when I want it.)

  • JTC

    Think of it like a paywall guys…

    Don’t hotline to the toon but rather go directly to the website and the levels are right underneath…you want today’s pithy or pussy, choose one and drop your quarters in…

    Then come on in and enjoy and join in with a truly one of a kind place with one of a kind people. Pay to play baby!

  • Pamela

    Our Son came down to stay for several days when My Husband was in the ER for 2 days with an 8m kidney stone. During that time things were getting strange in some areas. I freaked him out a bit when I stated their souls were forfeit, their houses damned, may their seed never find purchase, wither and die. They are abandoned by the Lord God and the Gates are forever closed to them. He said Mom, you just cursed them for all time. Sure did Son.

    • Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman

      Pamela,
      8m kidney stone? Das is ein grosse stein.

      • Pamela

        Yeah. It got zapped and a stent put in. Which was all sorts of fun getting removed by a string

        • Chris Muir

          Yowch!

    • Too Tall

      8mm?! Two days in the ER?! Prayers for you and your husband. If childbirth remains the only 10 on the pain scale, he just registered a 9.99.
