Lovely. Well, I still don't see the Obama connection to the current cartoon we're critiquing here (especially since he has an affinity to label the people he's lampooning, and there's no label here), but I can certainly see more of why Al Sharpton and others are sensitive here. The cartoonist and the Post obviously have a bad track record.

When I see that cartoon

I think it is a swipe at anti-gay people.

Because, it is only stupid people that make the argument

"If gay people can marry.

Then people will start marrying sheep, dead people, furniture, or whatever they want to call their significant other."

No one thinks Obama himself sat down at his iMac and wrote the stimulus bill. It was a knock on everyone involved, mostly COngress.

And further, I would submit that the cartoon isn't racist - but I can't say the same thing about the people who saw a chimpanzee and immediately thought "OBAMA!"

This cartoon guy is way out of his league...

Poll: Obama More Popular Than Jesus, Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. - First 100 Days of Presidency - Politics FOXNews.com

Quote:
John Lennon once claimed the Beatles were more popular than Jesus. Now President Obama has evidence that he's more popular than both.

Obama topped a new Harris interactive poll that asked 2,634 Americans who they admire enough to call a hero.

Jesus came in second on a list that includes God, Mahtma Gandhi and George Washington.

Were predictions about the Obama administration being the death of comedy right?

I just never trust a guy that uses the term "frigging", anyway.

Come on guys. It's pretty obvious that this guy hates African Americans and thinks black people are chimpanzees. It's the simplest answer! It couldn't have just been a stupid little cartoon with no racist intent. I mean seriously, if you saw a chimp you'd immediately think of a black guy too, right?

Al Sharpton is concerned he won't have anything to complain about anymore since white people voted for Obama! This is ridiculous and I see No racist overtones in this cartoon at all. Keep perpetuating your racist fear mongering Al, but I'm not buying!!

C'mon now, I get that people don't like Sharpton, but to suggest that people viewing the comic are jumping to racist conclusions is a bit absurd. Reminds me a bit of the events leading up to the schoolyard fight in Jena, when nooses hung in a tree were "a harmless prank" and anyone seeing it as racist was making assumptions etc etc. It's possible that the intent wasn't racist; you could make a case that the comic was an attempt at humor that showed poor judgement. But looking at it as racist isn't in any way a reach IMO.
