Creator NameGibbard; Leslie David (1945-2010); cartoonist
DescriptionCartoon shows a starving black man leaning on a crutch holding out a begging bowl whilst a fat white man in a suit gorges on roasted turkey by a Christmas tree. The caption reads "God bless us, everyone!"

[Likely that the cartoon was produced during the period of Biafran civil war, the black character is drawn in much the same way as Gibbard has done in other cartoons about this conflict. Also starvation was a key issue during the war where approximately 2 million Biafran citizens died of starvation.]
