The Post has since pulled the comic off of their website.
Do not see the connection between that incident and politics what-so-ever.
I wasn't expecting it to be that bad....
wasn't there like a 6 page post on this yesterday?
oh they messed up
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.
people are extra sensitive now that Obama is in office, if the monkey looked like him I could understand why people would be butthurt.
Al Sharpron is everywhere
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.
Dude has every news site on F5
when i saw that i couldnt get how they actually published that... boycott the NY Post
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.
Flagrant, word to Raja Bell
But I can't boycott nothing I don't already buy so ehh
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.
So now that our president is black everyone has to walk on eggshells with regards to using a monkey to make a point??? What's PETA or WWF stance on thesepoor chimpz being compared to our POTUS and his mistakes? Wheres the primate's version of al Sharpton???????????
Good ol Al
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.
