Is there a problem here?

Rev. Al Sharpton makes a statement: "The cartoon in today's New York Post is troubling at best given the historic racist attacks of African Americans as being synonymous with monkeys. One has to question whether the cartoonist is making a less-than-casual reference to this when, in the cartoon, they have police saying after shooting a chimpanzee that, "Now they will have to find someone else to write the stimulus bill."


"Wow are you kidding me? Did he just play the race card? Golly gee... Clearly this is about those senators in Washington monkeying around the congress with the stimulus bill. HA HA, LOL, President Obama is a monkey? Don't be ridulous!!! LMAO. Where do you guys come up with this stuff? Sharpton must be upset he lost his radio show in Atlanta..." Post editor-in-chief Col Allan said: "The cartoon is a clear parody of a current news event, to wit the shooting of a violent chimpanzee in Connecticut. It broadly mocks Washington's efforts to revive the economy. Again, Al Sharpton reveals himself as nothing more than a publicity opportunist."


OK, Al might have some opportunistic tendencies, but New York Post and editor Col Allan, please explain or fire yourself and the cartoonist. Have you forgotten about Sean Bell? I haven't...
