With the recent Chimp mauling in Connecticut, in which the owner of the chimpanzee and her friend were brutally attacked. The chimp was shot twice by police officers, who showed up at the scene.
A cartoonist from the New York Post, decided to run with the age-old idea of comparing a chimp to an African American.
The cartoon shows two police officers standing over the chimp's body: "They'll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill," one officer says.
Referring to President Obama, this cartoon has struck anger and hatred from all races of the Upper East Coast calling for the jobs of several men at the New York Post...
My question is:
Should the cartoonist & editors of the New York Post get fired?
My awnser is the whole chimp thing-comparing it to a black person, should stop! & should have stoped along time ago!
Yes, the staff that okay'd it to be printed should be fired...including the cartoonist...
After this cartoon was published, several well-known businesses in the New York area, pulled their advertisements from the paper, expressing protest.
