About that cartoon

It's impossible for me to comment on the Post cartoon and say anything that others haven't said much better than I could...

The New York Post makes its case for a post-racial America

I'm glad we don't have to worry about racism any more. Sean Delonas created this unbelievable cartoon for the New York Post that clearly passed muster with the editors' desk. It portrays commentary on the stimulus bill ("They'll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill") using a bullet-ridden chimp on the pavement. Who do you think he's referring to?


Just to make it clear: It's not just the chimp - that's just blatant name-calling in the old racist tradition - it's the MURDER and the threat of murder.

Yeah. Apparently, the offending editor was another right-wing chump run out of Australia, like his boss.

Sad what they've done to Alexander Hamilton's newspaper. And he was part African-American.

Santelli was really just echoing this viewpoint when he went into his tirade in Chicago yesterday about making the victims of the mortgage fraud pay their way out of their fix rather than have the country give them a break. There's a real element of racism/classism in blaming the victims.
