The Cavalier Daily cartoonist responsible for a controversial comic last week has been forced to resign.
UVa student Grant Woolard created a stir when his strip called "Ethiopian Food Fight" prompted a protest. Students staged a silent sit-in and demanded an apology from the paper as well as Woolard's removal.
The strip depicted emaciated-looking black men battling each
other using random objects such as a tree branch and a chair.
