This Editorial Cartoon In The UT Student Newspaper . . .


. . . caused quite the controversy. That free speech thing doesn't play too well in Austin sometimes.

I thought it was spot on.

A trail may be necessary to discover the truth!

I am not sure either side wants to know the truth, it might interfere with their agenda.

Spot on is sometimes annoying...

Call it satire, call it commentary, whatever.
I call it like this: she hit the nail on the head, and now the nail is screaming like a stuck, bloody pig...live at 10! Her choice of words may have been inelegant and insensitive, but as noted earlier - spot on

If anybody loses their jobs over this, why not the editorial board? They approved it

I'm either tired or a stupid white guy... (or both), but I'm not sure I get what the problem is here. Reading the comments that go with the story BG linked to is just weird... Many people are essentially saying, "I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to be offended, but I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be offended at. So I'll just make something up." It's an editorial cartoon, for crying out loud!

I've noticed liberals have problems with that "free speech thing", that "freedom to bear arms thing" and that "limited government thing".

Counselor it's disturbing that you don't realize that freedom of speech works both ways. You can say whatever idiotic thing you want but I have to right to call you on it. As long as the government doesn't interfere your rights have not been infringed.

10:14, the truth usually is annoying to a liberal weenie.

Those poor African Americans still think it's 1960 and everybody is against them. It doesn't help either when others cast that race bait fishing pole.

They also have some major issues in regards to their failure to comprehend the double standard scenario.

THERAPY might help. I'm sure the government can provide some sort.

Amen to 8:29 AM and the "its not 1960" statement. If you mention/use race in discussing things, that makes you a racist, right? Hmmm, that means the "blacks" are our most common occurring racists! I put "blacks" in quotes, because we're all really different shades of brown (unless you're an albino, or you're bleeding out).

8:29

If you read the comments on this blog at all, you will realize that a good deal of the population IS against them.

8:54 That wouldn't be because they, at times, act like a bunch of out of control crazies?

NAH

FYI, If you don't want a particular stereotype labeled on ya don't act just like the stereotype you're accused of.

Just saying.

The cartoon seems accurate to me.

Some of the most racist people I've ever run across in my life have been black. But, having said that,there are common trash of every color. Just open your eyes and look around. There are cut throat, theving bastards of every color and nationality. It just seems the ones that make the most fuss about it are the organizations that are predominately black calling any other person of a different pigmentation the devil. Go figure.

Sad but true.

It is shocking to see that the President of the United States actually condones the acts of threatened violence that have occurred in this case before the investigation is completed.

Mr. President had no problem talking about it in the beginning. Why not now? Why not tell people to calm down until the investigation is complete.

Hell. All he did was kill a kid. It's not like the little coon was kin to anyone around here.

I thought only the States had the authority to police the welfare of their citizens, not the Federal gov't. That is why we have car insurance laws from the State not the Feds. Also, that is why Massachusetts has a State run insurance plan. I believe the Constitution limits the Fed power, and it is a stretch to say the fed gov't has commerce clause authority to regulate the health and welfare of the citizens.

But I'm no Constitution Law professor.

It sounds like the nigger came to a gunfight without a gun. He must be 1/2 white like Obammy to not know you bring your own gun to a gun fight.
