Really? I don't believe this is true, but do people not pay attention to the racial undertones of their product?

I find it amusing how anything against Barack is racist. I don't think this was intended to be racist at all.

It's all in how you want to perceive it. People who want to see hate, racism, sexism etc will see it everywhere in just about anything.

You leave my pet swamp mouse out of this..he never did anything to hurt you. It just wants to live in its swamp mouse mansion and make swamp mouse babies.

Again, I didn't say it was racist... I don't believe it was, but linking the Black figurehead of a situation to a chimp may be percieved that way... Whether the guy is the President or not...

either way u perceive it, it is still in bad taste

but then again, isnt that the point of political satire?

How is it bad taste?

It appears to me as a play on the 1000 monkeys/Shakespeare line

1000 monkeys with 1000 type writers would eventually recreate the works of Shakespears given enough time

Its a probability thing.

Ah, I recall that now... Then again, I disagree with the attempt at a connection... The only reason that would make sense was if you were saying that the stimulus bill was the right thing to do and any monkey could recreate it... I have a feeling you don't feel that way...

I think it was meant to be racist. I have been hearing ( locally ont he radio news etc (I listen to that in the Am when going to work for traffic )) that obama this and obama that. I think that there is going to be aLOT of racial cartoons out there in the future. But thats political comedy. They will get at you in any and all ways.

if that cartoon is intended to be talking about Obama being a chimp, then its racist..there is no doubting it. Blacks have been called monkeys in the past and are still being called that till this day. Barack Obama has been called bad names and also Michael Steele was called horrible names when running for governor.
