Malcolm X once stated that …”You are either part of the solution or part of the problem.” Kiss Me Comix stands by being part of the solution with articles of the 4E Mandate listed in the KMC Universal Charter.
It was the spate of violence in the Chicagoland area nearly 20 years ago, that gave part of the impetus that led to the creation of Kiss Me Comix.
Once again nearly 20 years later, that same violence, gives the impetus for the evolution of Kiss Me Comix. We have been moved by the senseless loss of life among African-Americans, in particular the innocent young lives. Furthermore, the recent increase of mass shootings, that have reached epidemic proportions, not just across the country, but on a global scale. Also, the disappearance of human civility towards one another is present, in our politics, religion, and seems to be ingrained in the culture of modern era man.
The total disregard of life seems to be the rule NOT the exception of the 21st Century… UNTIL NOW!
Kiss Me Comix announces its stand to help those who disagree with the direction of where things are going with hate being the norm rather than the exception, to show that the human existence is special and precious to all, regardless, of race,creed,gender,religion,non-religion, or sexual preference.
