    The Reverend Al Sharpton is putting the smack down on the New York Post -- suggesting racism could be a factor in a political cartoon featured in this morning's edition. The cartoon comes in the wake of yesterday's national news story about the cop who shot and killed a rampaging chimp in Connecticut. But the controversy in the comic comes from the dialogue between the two officers -- which reads, "Now they will have to find someone else to write the stimulus bill." Before most of you woke up, Sharpton already fired off a statement saying, "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?"

    peace

    are we still really surprised at these types of comments?

    [email protected] in NYC

    at the end of the Sean Bell march headed by the same "let's march silently Mr. Sharpton who had the naacp members draped with yellow overcoats so if anything broke out they would not be hurt by the police" (who was probably informed about the cartoon before it was even printed by his handlers) the cops had a pre-recorded message at the end of the march by Macy's for us.....

    "We thank you for marching and please try to get home safe" - lol

    who cares what they say? To be affected by such foolishness means that they control your thoughts and emotions and can infuriate you anytime they want to because they know all you are going to do at the end of the day is where your shoes out shouting "No justice, no peace" .....& the next day you will buy the NY Post just to see what else they have to say!

    :bowdown: RAAAAA! :bowdown:
    "nuts"? "balls"? "shackles"? "cages"? continuing to play their game by setting the attainment of the chief office of this system of white supremelunacy as a goal for those that are suffering under the oppression of that system does not really strike me as a viable way of "getting one's balls back".

    better come up with something else really quick cause, like somebody said, it's only gonna get worse!
