New York Post Cartoon Chimpanzee

Take a look at the cartoon that was put into the New York Post of a chimpanzee being shot dead with comments form an officer. This is obviously a play on what had happened the other day where a pet chimpanzee had attacked a woman's friend viciously in Connecticut.

The caption is what has people bothered. It reads, "They'll have to find someone else to write the enxt stimulus bill." So basically, it is portraying Barack Obama as a chimpanzee. Which is something that was done frequently with George Bush. But the media looooooves Obama, so this is not cool! It's racist!

Now honestly, yes, through the eyes of somebody that does look for racism, this will appear to be racist. But lets just keep it to a joke people! The day we can laugh about things without getting offended will be a good day. Al Sharpton is talking... which is a sign that it can't be a big deal.

The New York Post has said in response, "The cartoon is a clear parody of a current news event, to wit the shooting of a violent chimpanzee in Connecticut. It broadly mocks Washington's efforts to revive the economy. Again, Al Sharpton reveals himself as nothing more than a publicity opportunist."
