"We'll fight your case all the way to the...never mind."


Original drawing depicting a prisoner and a lawyer sitting and talking with each other in a jail cell. The lawyer is white while the prisoner is black and has a worried expression. While the lawyer appears passionate, the end of the caption reveals that he finds the case hopeless. Appears to be referencing the disproportionate incarceration of African Americans, nodding to one of the factors being inadequate legal representation.
