The New York Post Cartoon

(cartoon from The New York Post 2.18.09)

The cartoon that was the talk on Radio and TV this week. I have many thoughts on it.

I think it is important to directly confront, address, and tackle racism in all its forms on all its levels. I will be contacting The New York Post with my thoughts and concerns over this cartoon and also express my concern to both the artist/satirist and the editor in chief who gave the final stamp of approval for this to be published.

To voice your concern over this cartoon call or email the New York Post @:

Rev. Al Sharpton and many others are strongly condemning a recent New York Post cartoon which linked the recent killing of a chimpanzee to Pres. Obamas stimulus package. WCBS Marcia Kramer reports.

NY Post Chimp Cartoon Causes an Uproar

A New York Post cartoon that some have interpreted as comparing President Obama to a violent chimpanzee drew outrage from civil rights leaders and elected officials who said it echoed racist stereotypes. (Feb. 18)
