The media portrayed Bush as a monkey for the past 8 years.

"I agree so by your own statement stop writing anything anywhere after all someone might take what you say the "wrong" way."

Obama is the President. "Monkey" is a well known racial slur for someone of African descent. A picture of a monkey getting shot shortly after the stimulus bill takes place is printed in the NY Post. You don't have to be a genius to connect them all together.

>>>>you seeing black first, monkey second though is a tad bit disturbing<<<<

No you see what you are conditioned to see first. If you spend all your time looking for racism that is what you will see, if you spend your time listen to Al S. you will likely assume his take on it is correct. Many many others looked at it read the text and took it to refer to a group of monkey pounding on typewriters, congress.

>>>>What I think the real problem is is that the comic is racially insensitive. The artist should have known that his comic could be viewed in different ways and should be aware of the influence he or she has.<<<

Good god give me a break.
