Whats Funny About This?
Nothing about this is funny
its just disturbing....
The New York Post recently published the political cartoon shown here, depicting two white police officers standing over the carcass of a bullet-riddled chimpanzee, with the animal representing the author of the stimulus package. Obama.
The decision to run this cartoon is unthinkably irresponsible
the an editor of a newspaper of this caliber would not understand the history of Black folks being depicted as monkeys and apes or the recent spate of death threats against President Obama. Worse, when confronted, Post editor Col Allan dismissed people's concerns as baseless.
There would be no need for a stimulus spackage if it werent for two terms of a white greedy president named Bush but there are no cartoons depicting him killed
or any assassination attempts on his life
the worse danger he's ever been in is a pair of loafers being thrown @ him.
The racism MUST stop we cant ignore it anymore.
By clicking the Color of Change link below you Join us in demanding that The Post issue an apology for the decision and their callousness, and fire the editor who allowed this cartoon to go to print.
