Maybe if you guys took some cultural sensitivity training, or looked at the history of racism, then perhaps you can understand why so many ppl are offended by the image. This happened before with Japan, and needless to say, black (and many white, yellow, red and others too) Americans are often offended when their leaders are juxtaposed with old racist stereotypes.
It's just a cartoon yes, but to see it as only that is to be ignorant of the offense it harbors.
And I thought the motto was deny ignorance. yeah.
P.S: Sure the artist had a right to post it, but the protesters have the same right to bash it, no?

I was just reading a story on how Al extorts corporate America if they don't give him cash. I think it's time we start boycotting black owned establishments until they tell Al to shut up and go away.
Now you may say it's not their fault but it's just like condoning terrorism through silence.
I think Al is a terrorist and I think Corporate America are a bunch of wimps. I think just one guy publicly telling Al to shut the hell up would do an extreme amount of good.
Here's a good read on this baboon...
