I am getting tired of reading the news. Is there something wrong with me, the news, or both?

Trudeau is not an elected official.


GHW Bush called his grandchildern "the little brown ones".

I don't think Jeb's wife appreciated it very much.

And then we have W. saying "You got blacks in Brazil?"

To the Brazilian head of state.

You aren't the only one. The news has been so depressing lately. Every news story I see, I get more and more convinced that the world is going straight to Hell.

actually Trent was rather well spoken and was not known for using racial slurs.

Watch Canadian news sometime. They actually, dare I say it, broadcast "news." Here in the U.S., we laugh at historical figures like William Randolph Hearst ("Citizen Kane" is a parody of him), but our news is exactly like his. All we do now is broadcast rumors, sound bites, etc., and they're never followed up.

It is said that "60 Minutes" is the last true news outlet in the U.S. The rest--and I tend to agree--are all fearmongering tabloid trash. The state of journalism in America today is nothing short of embarrassing, especially when I see news networks censoring themselves, almost literally on cue from the White House.

What no one has mentioned so far is that Dubya has a documented tendency of giving all his staffers slightly embarrassing nicknames, regardless of race or gender. I think that's what Trudeau may be poking fun at, especially given the Bushes' less-than-sterling record on using accepted names for ethnic/racial groups (e.g. "the little brown ones," "Grecians").

personally I do think that calling this a racial slur is funnier than the actual joke in the cartoon
