Cartoon du Jour

Pat Oliphant/Universal Press Syndicate

This is one very stupid cartoon. Perhaps if Oliphant had had the pictured N' stereotype holding a watermelon, its racist idiocy would be plainer.
Please... the lazy, shiftless, no-account blacks Oliphant recalls for us aren't listening to Bill Cosby on the paternal responsibilities of life nor someone running for President.
Point being that Oliphant's depicted element that doesn't care to embrace responsibility won't even hear Obama's message, so the premise of the cartoon is invalid rubbish. It is nonsensical.
If the premise is invalid then Oliphant's desire to exhibit a decades old caricature of shiftless blacks logically is the driving force of the cartoon.
It's a stupid cartoon that enshrines bigotry.
