The New York Post Monkey Business

    The New York Post ran this cartoon of a chimpanzee that was shot by the police. The policeman with the smoking gun is quoted as saying: “We’ll have to get someone else to write the next stimulus bill.” African Americans are outraged by the connection of the dead monkey to President Obama. The Post called the cartoon a parody. I don’t get the parody of a chimp that mauled it’s owner and the stimulus package. Here are some images that the cartoon conjured up in my mind. Parody, racism or insensitivity? You decide. Things that make you go hmmmmm.
