Today’s NY Post features a political cartoon by Sean Delonas that has to be seen to be believed.

Two cops have shot a chimp to death. One says, “They’ll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill.”

Comparing our black president, the author of the current economic stimulus bill, to a rampaging chimpanzee that has been shot dead by two white cops is inexcusable. But publishing such a cartoon in New York City in 2009? That’s beyond belief.

I’m just a kidney, and I may well have been removed from the body of a white person. (I didn’t look, so happy was I to be out of that confined space — and so ignorant, then, of the impact of race.) But this cartoon’s racism is obvious even to me. And if it’s obvious to a *kidney,* then how did it ever get published?

Shame on Sean Delonas, and shame on every member of the Post editorial team who approved the publication of this cystic cartoon.  — Kenny
