New York Post Cartoon

Al Sharpton says it’s racist.  NY Gov. David Patterson demanded an explanation.  Millions of Americans (not just Black Americans) are offended too.  Are you?

The Post response, from Editor in Chief Col Allan: “The cartoon is a clear parody of a current news event, to wit the shooting of a violent chimpanzee in Connecticut. It broadly mocks Washington’s efforts to revive the economy.”

  1. I don’t see the controversy with the cartoon. Bush was always drawn as a chimp.

  2. I think it is very poor taste and a weak analogy. When I first saw the cartoon, I shook my head.

  3. Point taken. A certain segment of our U.S. population gets it.

  4. “They’ll have to find someone else to draw the New York Post cartoons.”

  5. Extremely poor taste. There are better ways to get your point across. Besides, Obama is doing his best in fixing the world that Bush broke.
