New York Post Stimulus Cartoon Calls Obama a Monkey?

Publish date:

The New York Post is no stranger to scandal inducing headlines, but this time it's one of its cartoons that's at the center of a media furor. On Wednesday, the Post published a cartoon from Sean Delonas comparing the writers of the stimulus bill to the crazed chimpanzee that recently attacked a woman. Many people, including Al Sharpton, see the cartoon as a thinly veiled racist comparison of President Obama to a monkey, but Post editors insist that the cartoon "broadly mocks Washington's efforts to revive the economy. Again, Al Sharpton reveals himself as nothing more than a publicity opportunist."

Is the cartoon racist, or just political caricture? Tell us what you think.
