I am extremely glad that you  are aware of the effect of the cartoon. people react in the most negative manner when they see a cartoon that is racist, and  ethnic  offensive. Is is also a way of baiting posters so they can get angry and react in a negative manner.

I do hope that the moderators   are looking as to the consequences of these cartoons that are most definitely not appropriate in this message board.


What in the cartoon is racist, and  ethnic  offensive.

 

I personally think of her as an idiot - but apparently others see her in ethnic terms - sorta racist on their part, no??

Of course it's not possible (except for **bleep** trumpsters) for political affiliation to be considered racism.

 

It's not that rebs are what they are - it's that their leader was on Russian financial life support for a number of years prior to Putin's bot's and trolls manipulating the  minds of those who voted for tRump...

Okay, I will try to remove mine, but in doing so, I do feel that these type of topics/comics should also be met with the others' opinions..


Suposedly, we should at least have some sensitity to racial, ethnic types of cartoon that are quite offensive to others.

If you post racist or other types of diviisive comments, you can be reported and penalize by the TOS  Apparently cartton that incide division, racism  are not ssen as a deviation of the TOS and are in many ways baiting posts to incite others.


There is nothing racial or ethnic in that. The woman is an idiot regardless of, not because of her ethnicity.

If a person is going to allow their racist impression of the cartoon to effect them, it can hardly be called baiting by the original poster, but the follow up and any supporters of that racist approach ..... well......????

It is a shame that there are those that feel like they must assign a title to a WOMAN OF COLOR of BEYOND STUPID.

 

Not funny, @Soosie.

 

It is my understanding that assigning qualities to a person based on the color of their skin is called "racism". So, I guess assuming a person of color can't be an idiot would qualify.

 

To not grasp that is either beyond stupid or so hate filled that understanding such basic truths is beyond possibility.

I have no intendtion on getting into an argument with you. sorry, I will leave that determination to the Moderators.
I sincerely feel that the cartoon is offensive, racist,  Ethnic inappropriate and instills anger and inappropriate posts. there has to be a manner in which we can discuss issue without creating what  this cartoon obviously  has created.
