Sooooooo, I posted/shared the attached political cartoon by A.F. Branco on my Facebook page this weekend.

Obama cartoon sparks debate about racism in political cartoons

Almost immediately I was swamped with complaints, outrage, and insults from some of my Left-leaning “friends.”

Seriously. I was called:

  • Racist
  • Unfunny
  • A propagandist
  • Someone who promotes violence against animals

In addition to the unfounded insults posted in my comments section, I also received emails asking and demanding that I remove the cartoon. I have not.

I don’t see it as racist or even mean. What do you think? Take our poll.


Is this cartoon racist?

 

Ps. - I do admit to being unfunny on occasion. (Ask my wife, please.) But, the other charges could hardly hold up in any court. In fact, as my in-box was overflowing with hate mail, we were fostering this dog just rescued from a “kill shelter.”

The pictured pooch did end up getting a new home. We miss her already!
