    I don't know if the cartoon is definitely about Obama. It could be interpreted in a couple of ways. So, I'll reserve judgement.

    Thumbs down

    Obviously blatant. What else would stimulus bill andchimp refer to (headlines of that pet chimp being shot). This is as sick as anything a neo nazi would do. Disgusting

    This cartoon carries a double entendre, however, one of the meanings is most certainly not unintentional. To the contrary, it seems as if the artist put great thought into subtly relaying his thoughts on Obama, his work, and possibly, what he thinks should be done to him.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the person who drew this deliberately planned it so that there would be an "alternate" interpretation (so they can have plausible deniability, "why, it was not racist at all, we were referring to all them politicians as monkeys"). Bigots these days are bloody creative.

    In this day and age, anyone and their grand kids should know that a chimpanzee or ape is one way of racially insulting people of African origin. The excuse that they didn't know better or it had no racist intent, it just does NOT fly in this day and age. One does NOT use a chimpanzee or ape to represent a person or group when it has a historical precedent as being racially offensive. No excuses unless the intent was racial in nature.

    I stand by my belief, this was a racist jibe at Obama, and a sick one at that.

    That is ignorant. I can't believe the NYP would actually allow that.
    Wrong, on so many levels.

    The only thing that makes me think it wasn't racist is the monkey looks so unlike Obama. they could have given him big ears, then there would be no mistake. I just don't want to believe someone cold be so out and out racist.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    Aside from it being offensive or not.

    Aren't we just the slightest bit hypcritical when for the past 8 years we laughed along with Bush being compared to a chimp and we fly off the handle at the consideration that the cartoon may reflect tastless humor against Obama?

    Oh they can! A friend of mine sent an email after Obama won depicting Michelle as Aunt Jemima, Obama as an ape, and his daughters as chimps.
