“They’ll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill,” is what one of the officers in the editorial cartoon above say after shooting a chimpanzee three times in the chest/abdomen. The chimpanzee is laying in the grass, obviously dead, with blood surrounding its body. This piece of sh*t, illustrated by cartoonist Sean Delonas, was published on the New York Posts‘ website and in the print version of the popular news publication.
But wait, President Barack Obama just signed a stimulus bill into action, didn’t he? He sure did. So does that mean the New York Post is racist? It sure does. And Rev. Al Sharpton thinks so too! Below is a statement he released earlier today:
“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.”
“Being that the stimulus bill has been the first legislative victory of President Barack Obama (the first African American president) and has become synonymous with him it is not a reach to wonder are they inferring that a monkey wrote the last bill?”
This horribly offensive cartoon also comes just two days after a 200 pound pet chimpanzee was shot to death by police officers after the animal suddenly attacked a family friend, ripping half of her face off. Doctors say it took 7 hours of surgery to stabilize the victim. What do you think about the cartoon? Is it really that offensive or are people reading into it too much? We say it’s F*****G OFFENSIVE!
