    The cartoonist has a right to make his point, but I have a right to say that it's offensive.

    That people find political commentary that is based in reality 'offensive' merely speaks to the mental/emotional weakness of those individuals.

    I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about? Who are the "they" that can still be seen as potential criminals? What does this have to do with Obama?

    Good thing you put a question mark after that.

    That doesn't even make sense, and Obama is an idiot.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    You find it painfully true that mainly civil protests are the equivalent to a history of actual lynchings and a domestic organization that terrorized blacks for nearly a century?

    I thought ramen's post was a spot on description of the cartoons message. It *is* comparing calls for a *trial* to the lynchings of the KKK.
