It has taken me a day to figure out what I wanted to say about a cartoon I came across on several blog posts yesterday. To set the scene the cartoon was published in the New York Post by one of their regular cartoonists named Sean Delonas. The cartoon came a day after the tragic attack by a chimpanzee on its owner and her friend in Stamford, Connecticut that resulted in the hospitalization of the two women and the shooting death of the chimpanzee. It also came on the heels of President Obama signing the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. It should also be noted that the US Attorney General had admonished in a speech the same day of the cartoon's release that Americans don't talk about race and its impact on many Americans everyday life. I do not know what any of your reactions might be to the cartoon, but my reaction was one of visceral revulsion.
