Is this a statement of racism?

Or is this a statement of competence and intelligence?

I remember years ago a car commercial with a mechanic assuring someone he had his “best people” working on their car – with the next scene showing 3 monkeys beating the engine with baseball bats. I also remember a commercial where an investment company was discerning the best strategy for the market: cut to a scene with monkeys throwing darts at a paper tacked to a dartboard. Quite funny…

So why is this cartoon from the NY Post out of line?

Will all monkey, chimpanzee, orangutan, and ape references be taboo for the next 4 years?

Will the color black be outlawed until 2012 as well?

Maybe Eric Holder was right. Maybe we are a nation of cowards when it comes to racism.

Your thoughts…
