The cartoon which appeared in the New York Post has incited outrage in many of us (of all races and nationalities) around the country. We have taken this issue on with passion and many of African American (AA) leaders have called for boycotts, apologies and other remedies. However, unfortunately many fail to see the big deal and think that they are "playing the race card", "over reacting" and being a bit too "sensitive".

Whatever your opinion, this is America and you are allowed to hold that opinion in the country which I love.. However, I implore us to look a little deeper into the symbolism and history associated with Black people being compared to animals both consciously and subconsciously. I cannot begin to share the vast amount of historical medical data associated with this imagery and subsequent treatment or lack thereof which many Blacks had to endure as a consequence. I ask that we wake up and not wait for a "cartoon" or incident to galvinize us to action.

First of all President Obama didn’t write the stealfromus bill. It does appears however to have been written by either a bunch of chimps or a baboons. Racist Al makes his living by tainting everything with racism. “You drive a white car… You must be a racist.” Racism is dying in The United States (good rid dens) but there are still a whole bunch of people who make a lot of money off it and want to keep it alive. I agree, I do find it quite insulting that Al thinks of our President as a chimp. … I guess the whole thing is just Al’s personal stimulus package to keep racism alive so he won’t be joining the masses in the unemployment lines.
