    The issue is who approves these things to begin with... doesn't take a genius to see the connection so therefore it was done on purpose. Andtherein lies the problem.

    By increasing the font, you think you made your statement any valid?

    How can you not see the racist undertone...quite obvious. They did it to get attention (which they got) but at the end of the day it's racist.

    I would ask you about your background to give you a similar example but then again I'd be doing what they're doing. If you don't see it then so beit.[​IMG]

    After further review (booth + HD) and knowing what your intentions were, your statement makes no sense in that regard. Read it again.

    Of course it's racist. You think an adult, a professional cartoonist for the NY Post isn't aware of the historical implications of that imagery? NYPost is trash anyway, but they should be held responsible in some way for publishing this. I mean, someone conceived, drew and actually approved this. Itdidn't just happen to mysteriously show up in the NY Post, right?

    Obama didn't write the bill though, right? I'm just making sure before I decide how to feel about this.

    No, Obama didn't write the bill. He campaigned for it. Many people believe he did write the bill though and will mix the message of this imagewith their own ignorance. Aside from that you have people who put out this image thinking there would be no controversy, despite the fact that there was anactual news event of a chimpanzee being shot coinciding with this stimulus bill thing. The lines are blurred enough for someone to think they could get awaywith this kind of stuff, but I'd like to think most of the people who have seen this image are smarter than that. take a look at the cartoonist's otherimages and see for yourself his not so flattering images of people of color.

    correct. Notice it doesn't say "They'll have to find someone else to SIGN the next stimulus bill!" However,saying that the authorship of the bill is credited to congress is the same as saying the same thing about the Iraq war. It is Obama's bill just as the waris Bush's.

    It is hard to understand the intent though. If I thought there was even a sliver of a chance that the cartoon would be misunderstood I would have scrappedit.
