The NY Post Cartoon

I read the cartoon in question and see zero reason for complaints. Politicians are regularly portrayed as Apes including Ape Lincoln and GW Bush. There is some really horrible racist history of comparing Blacks to apes. However, this cartoon made zero mention of Obama and was a comment on a government policy. One really needs to link the policy exclusively to Obama personally to make that link and even then it is tenuous at best.

It's total bullcrap.

Anything for the race hustlers to get a little face time..
