New York Post Old Style KKK or New Style Freedom of Speech?

The New York Post published a cartoon of a policeman holding a smoking gun and a dead monkey on the pavement. You know the one. I will not publish it, to do so, in my opinion would only perpetuate the commercialization and objectification of black people by cheap sensationalism. It's time to call a racist a racist. There has to be an accounting.

That said I hope you will join the Young Turks on Alternet in a intelligent conversation and form your own opinion.

My opinion is the New York Post drawing is racist trash. And I think we are capable and responsible to of raise our morality above this.

I have joined the color of change and signed the petition demanding that we hold the New York Post accountable.
