New York Post Does a "No - No"

The New York Post’s Wednesday cartoon depicting two police officers shooting and killing a chimpanzee, purportedly parodying the Monday police shooting of a pet chimpanzee in Stamford, Connecticut after it mauled a friend of its owner, with the caption, “They’ll have to find someone to write the next stimulus bill,” has been challenged by Rev. Al Sharpton and others as a racist attack on President Barack Obama.
Sharpton, who remained mum throughout 2008 during assorted racial flaps surrounding Obama’s campaign, spoke out on his radio show and on MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann. Asking, “How do you connect what is not connectable?,” Sharpton called into question the sincerity of The Post’s Editor-in-Chief, Col Allen, who glossed over centuries of racist depictions of African Americans as simian, defending the cartoon as a legitimate political critique.
Even if Allen were to be believed, The Buzz wonders whether he’ll get a call from the U.S. Secret Service for publicly depicting the shooting of a tasteless caricature. If that cartoon were published by any known hate group, you can bet that a couple of agents would be paying a visit.

I seriously doubt that the EIC of the NY Post is going to dodge having to make a very public apology and bow down to the terroristic Al Sharpton and/or the NAACP organization. The cartoon IS RIOTOUSLY funny, but it is definitely on the fringe of what ant reasonable person can expect to get away with...

The racial struggle is really warming up just now. Expect it to become very fierce, my friends. It is a battle for people's minds and hearts.

Unless I am much mistaken, our Founding Fathers and early Presidents were regularly caricatured in the newspapers of the day.

I don't quite believe that this drawing was an accident. It could have been planned, not to "test the waters" of free speech, but to condition White America to self-censorship.

We desire to live in our own neighborhoods, go to our own schools, work in our own cities and towns, and ultimately live as one extended family in our own nation. We shall end the racial genocide of integration. We shall work for the eventual establishment of a separate homeland for African Americans, so each race will be free to pursue its own destiny without racial conflicts and ill will. ---Dr. David Duke

Al Sharpton is nothing more than a showman. All he cares about is attracting attention by any means possible.

Pastor Robb,

Keep up the good work.

Did you hear the Attorney General called us a "nation of cowards" for not addressing race? WHAT? Everytime we address race there cannot be an even discussion because they always ask for more handouts and it is our fault the position their race is in. If we disagree we are racist. Blacks are the only race that will bite the hand that feeds them then ask for more.

Amen Maverick!! Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, most of these black leaders and even Johnny Lee Clary these are just attention thriving money hungry people who care nothing about that issue of race. If we truly judge people not by the color of their skin but by their character the black race still falls short.

Why is that a no no? Really if that were George W. or David Duke they would post it weekly.
