Ebola: Why is it this disease we fear?

The New York Post 2/18/2009 - This is Not Funny

The New York Post recently published the political cartoon shown here, depicting two white police officers standing over the carcass of a bullet-riddled chimpanzee, with the animal representing the author of the stimulus package.
The decision to run this cartoon was irresponsible at best, and hurtful and malicious at worst. It seems unthinkable that an editor of a newspaper would not understand the history of Black folks being depicted as monkeys and apes or the recent spate of death threats against President Obama. Worse, when confronted, Post editor Col Allan dismissed people's concerns as baseless.

JOIN US in demanding that The Post issue an apology for the decision and their callousness, and fire the editor who allowed this cartoon to go to print.

Hi Shay!

What an informative post -- we all have to be our own eyes and ears regarding racist rhetoric. I didn't know about this cartoon.

I would suggest we write other media outlets and ask them to report on this. Contact FAIR's (Fair & Accuracy In Reporting) media list, found at: http://www.fair.org/index.php?page=111

Thanks for brining this to the forefront!

Hi again Shay,

The ladies on The View just spent the first 8 opening minutes talking about the cartoon in the NY Post. Whoopi (as usual) offered a lot of insight and Joy Behar used your words verbatum..."THIS IS NOT FUNNY!" So the word is getting out there...

Thanks again for sharing!

I was shocked and appalled about the post insensitivity to this matter. Satire and parody are supposed to make you reflect on the situation. This cartoon was completely uncalled for and has serious racial undertones. I guess we are supposed to overlook this but let’s get real. If a black newspaper displayed anything remotely in this characterization they would be investigated and possibly shut-down.

Peace

Obama walked around here like race is not an issue.
He has called himself a "mutt".
Is he addressing this issue ?
I can't hear YOU ??????
I think it is a damn shame that folks want to protest in front of the post, which was already going out of business.
There are Black Children being killed by pigs everyday.............where is the outcry for Real Black People ?
If energy is to be spent,
FREE the SCOTT SISTERS !!!!!!!

WELL, WELL, WELL, This topic has brought some of our best thinkers to the forefront to address it while THE BEAT GOES ON. See if you can pick up on the rhythm of the beat.

ON , TWO, THREE, HIT IT...!
1. Racism can be defeated by simply supporting OUR OWN AGENDAS and not giving credence to a system which is dying anyway... CAN YOU HEAR ME!

2. This whole country was built on Racism, Exploitation and Slavery. How can we expect someone with DIRTY UNDERWARE ON which they have never changed to just put on new clothes and all is suddenly OK.... OK?

3. Much thanks to all who choose to FIGHT RATHER THAN SWITCH but I would rather SWITCH THAN FIGHT A DYING CAUSE. I had not heard of HYMAS (Remember him) until people got upset with him for making a racist comment. Where is Hymas now... back on top with higher pay... CAN YOU HEAR ME YET?

4. WE SPEND ABOUT 1% OF OUR HARD EARNED MONEY WITH EACH OTHER and spend 99% back with the people that we call racist... ARE YOU FILLLIN THE BEAT, WHERE IS THE PROTEST?

5. WE (junkies) WATCH GARBAGE ON TV and READ JUNK IN HATE SHEETS everyday giving HIGH RATINGS to people who SELL BILLION DOLLAR ADVERTING based on OUR VIEWING while WE GET NOTHING BUT LAID OFF... IS IT GOOD TO YA?

6. WE NEED TO BE MAD, MAD AS HELL WITH OUR OWN SELVES for putting up with not just this Cartoonist views but OUR OWN VIEWS. TURN THEM ALL OFF! SHUT THEM ALL DOWN. HOW THE HELL CAN WE ALLOW OTHERS TO COME INTO OUR HOMES DAILY while we know for SURE they mean us no good. Don't get MAD, GET BUSY. We must Busy ourselves in creating and Empowering OUR OWN MEDIA FOR A CHANGE. Until then, THE BEAT GOES ON... CAN YOU FEEL IT NOW!

WACP.tv ... preparing to LAUNCH OUR OWN MULTI-MEDIA CHANNEL NETWORK WHICH WILL PAY YOU TO PROMOTE YOUR OWN GOODNESS. SELF DETERMINATION IS THE BEST PRO-ACTIVITY KNOW IN MODERN HISTORY.
REPEAT THESE 6 BARS AND HUM ALONG!!!!!!

Keeping it real with your host Hassan

This discussion is really great. It has been posted from two other Members and all have comments on them from different Members. Some times it take this type of negative actions (the cartoonist) to get us to thinking about things that we know anyway and things that we should be acting on anyway. I am thankful (as bad as it was) for the cartoonist helping to wake us up to some ACTION and soon some PRO-ACTION. When PRO-ACTION IS PRESENT there is no need for RE-ACTION because you are already taking the steps even before you have to. That's where we should step to and stay there...PRO-ACTIVITY, PREVENTION and SELF DETERMINATION!
