    THANK YOU!

    No, it's not even the same thing. Bush looks like a chimp, and he's an object of ridicule for his intellectual incuriosity..but given that he's white such a label does not carry any of the obvious racist undertones.

    I thought that was pretty plain.

    Referring to black people as any kind of primate is inherently racist just from a historical point of view. Come on, you all know that. Don't play stupid.

    No, we're not hypocritical because Dubya actually really looked like a chimp.
    (I'd say it was an insult to chimps to compare him to them as they have
    proven to have higher intelligence than the Shrub).
    This cartoon is unsettling, to say the least. I can't believe it got past the
    editor; can't believe that nobody saw the potential of it giving a racist
    impression. So much for freedom to express one's opinion. One is not
    supposed to ignite any ideas from even bigger ignorants than the cartoonist.

    I agree, I'm sorry but there's no historical record of an ape or chimpanzee used as a racial insult for those of caucasian background, at least that I am aware of.

    Again anyone and their infant child in this day and age should know what an ape/chimpanzee refers to.

    I don't think calling Bush a chimp was nice, but at least there was no racial connotation. Remember the guy with the monkey wearing an Obama sticker at the Palin Rally? That was offensive to many people too, which it wouldn't have been if Obama were white.

    Makes you wonder why this was your first statement then:

    You know, since Obama actually signed the bill. They weren't even speaking about finding new people to write it, but someone else to sign it.

    I knew this point would be brought up. Except in Dubya's case white people as a whole weren't constantly referred to as 'monkeys' or' chimps' so there was no racial overtones to it. If somebody depicts Obama as a monkey, whether this cartoon is or not, does smack of racial overtones toward blacks in general because those terms have been used too many times. Plus the idiot at the Palin rally who had the toy monkey with an Obama sticker wrapped around it.

    Now, my gut instinct is telling me that it's about Obama, but I'm trying to give the Post the benefit of the doubt.

    Im saying comparing Bush/Obama chimp messages is stupid given the obvious racist connotation for one of those parties that would not apply to the other, and therefore not make a comparison possible.

    Now, whether the INTENT was to be racist on the part of the paper, well...

    Oh I love how the grammar nazi comes out when you have nothing else to offer. I was actually using a spoof of the crazy Chris, which I am sure you knew, so I was actually correct in using ALONE.

    Um, no it's not. Do your research Becky!
