    Cartoons, as with comedy, are only effective when they parrot reality and bring discomfort to the forefront. Had the jury verdict gone the other way, we might have seen a similar cartoon with the six female jurors as the lynchers. Cartoons and comedy are great ways to embarrass people and point out how other people see their actions - it might help them to temper their actions in the future.

    As for the cartoon itself, I'm not the slightest bit offended except for the fact that the horse looks a little dopey - no noble steed, that one.

    It would be nice to know why the left and blacks' disrespect of the all female jury's verdict isn't seen by the media and others for what it is, a war on white women.

    Very lame talking point. As if anybody thinks that conservatives care about poor black people in Chicago. The liberal coalition including the vast majority of blacks have been trying to alleviate the effects of poverty in black communities for decades...and conservatives have been fighting those policies for decades.
    Yep...well...your words...not mine...

    You don't get it.

    It's drawing a parallel between how the NAACP is behaving with how the KKK behaves toward race issues. . . using this as an example.

    He's saying they're behaving the SAME WAY.

    In all honestly, it's too stupid, illogical and poorly drawn to be offensive to me, LOL.

    I guess I also missed the part where Holder, Sharpton, the NAACP, and the democratic party called for a lynching.

    Maybe because it never happened

    How are the parties depicted in the cartoon (ie Holder, Sharpton, the NAACP, and the Democratic Party) oppressing Zimmerman?

    I've seen photoshops of Clarence Thomas with a KKK hood on recently.

    Thankfully not on THIS forum.

    It's the plain truth. It can only be offensive to those who hate the truth. I didn't need this thread to know that the OP falls solidly into that category; that's been obvious for quite some time.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Hanging from a tree, jailed for life even after having a trial and exoneration...

    Just degrees of the same despicable acts.
