This nasty cartoon was published in the New York Post and its editor is denying any racial tones.
My opinion: It’s appalling that in the year 2009 such ignorance is still being published and that people are expected to swallow it without comment. It is not sarcasm, but a blatant racial poke at President Obama. I’m disgusted and sickened that a major publication would publish such garbage.
Do something about it by visiting Color of Change and joining the electronic demand that change happen at the New York Post. Hold its editor accountable for the political cartoon.
I wouldn’t be as upset if he at least acknowledged his error. But by playing dumb, he has insulted all Americans and should be forced to take responsibility for his poor decision making.
It’s all over the web so find out for yourself and make your voice heard by your silence or comment.
