    Seriously? We`re now displaying racist cartoons that depict the president`s face as half White and half Black?

    I think you guys are reading too far into political cartoons, I didn`t even notice it until you guys said it. I don`t really see how it`s calling black people "Untermensch", which is what would amount to actual racism. But white people can continue to be offended on behalf of black people, I suppose.

    Same thing with this one, which was controversial.



    And this one



    This isn`t a cartoon, but you can also do this and get away with it. Imagine if they did this with Hillary. Oh boy.

    @ Andrew155: Half of his face is Black and half his face is White (with a blue eye, no less)--and you didn`t notice it?

    And now you don`t see how this is racist? Hmmm... let`s see... here`s a cartoon that portrays everything--and I mean EVERYTHING--that this president does as a comic disaster. Hmmm. Why would that be? Perhaps it`s because he`s some kind of weird half-White, half-Black racial monster. You know, different. Not normal like you or me.

    I`ll give the cartoons credit for one thing, though: They help me understand what it is some racists see when they`re looking at the president. They don`t see a man, first and foremost--they see a racial situation (a non-White in the Oval Office) that offends them to the core.

    @link heil. You`ll probably find that accounts like that are paid advertisers who give fancy a backhander for letting them promote their content on here in an attempt to make it viral.

    That`s a VERY funny site!!
    And I spotted an I-Am-Bored linky / advert there too! ;-)

    here`s a cartoon that portrays everything--and I mean EVERYTHING--that this president does as a comic disaster.

    @Squrlz4: um EIGHT YEARS OF BUSH JOKES
    Remember that? Eh? Rings a bell, yes? It what "political SATIRE" is supposed to do! DUH!!!
    Why "pick on" poor Obama? He`s only the PRESIDENT!!!! It`s NOT HIS FAULT!! BUUUUSH!!!
    Actually, it was more like 12 years since the "jokes" kept up until Obama`s second term...

    @OldOllie: THAT was brilliant! :-)

    @ 5Cats: Let me get this straight--

    You don`t understand why these cartoons--with the president portrayed with half a Black face and half a White face (with a blue eye)--are racist?

    Seriously?

    @Squrlz4Sale: Nope! I just don`t see it. Of course I`m a Canadian...



    Obama campaigned on race, he gets made fun of by race. Simple!
    12+ years of `Bush Is From Texas` jokes (both Bushs of course!) and Reagan is an Actor jokes...
    Nixon deserved most of the jokes thrown at him...
    Ford too! Especially Ford! >-( Jag-off.

    Romney is a RICH WHITE MORMON jokes... like Kerry, Clinton B., Clinton H., Carter and the rest aren`t ALL rich AND white too? Seriously...

    @ 5Cats: I suppose I could now type out a lengthy explanation of why portraying the president with half a Black face and half a White face with a blue eye is racist. But if you don`t get it from my previous comment earlier in this thread--and clearly, you don`t--you never will.

    And that, actually, is pretty sad.

    I`m pretty happy about it, actually!

    I can look at a person and NOT judge them by their skin colour.

    I repeat: Obama RAN ON RACE so his skin is fair game for SATIRE.

    Every cartoon or video I looked at over there? ALL of them dealt with politics, personality and issues. NOT ONE RACIST JOKE was to be found! (Not that I read that many of course...)



    All is fair in love and political satire! Unless it`s illegal, then that`s probably unfair...

    @Squrlz4: You did notice that "Two-Tone Obama`s" "black & white sides" FLIP back & forth? No? It`s clearly done for satire...

    The "blue eye" flips too...
