THIS IS A SATIRE. Captain Ig'nant represents the unfortunate hold of negative stereotypes placed upon the black community. I am black, most of the voices are black, and if you pass this off as "racist" and do attempt to understand the message, you are not doing any favor for the issues. This is meant to make people laugh yes but also point out the flaws in the current image of black America.

This is my animation for my junior thesis at the University of the Arts. And yes I got an 'A', haha, thank you Elliot Cowan.

Whenever a black person even THINKS about acting rationally, or dares to rise above stereotypes, your friendly hood-ass Captain Ignant is there to save the day! From African Americans getting shot for ridiculous reasons, to suburbanite black kids trying to be hood, Captain Ignant is there to keep black people the way they were "supposed" to be: IG'NANT!

Animated in Toon Boom Animate 2
Composited/Special Effects in Adobe After Effects CS5
Most voices recorded with Blue Yeti Microphone



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Tremendously offensive

Seems like my title is a contradiction to the rating I gave this. But, let's face it. Stereotypes are hilarious. More importantly, this was actually a high quality video, with clear sound and smooth animation. Very well done. I wish there was something I could say constructively, but I was completely entertained by the entirety of this video. Thank you.

Chakra-X responds:

Racism implies a hatred or prejudice for someone based on their race. There is absolutely nothing racist about "Captain Ignant" by that definition.
