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

    I needed to look no further than the particular patois attributed to the member of the NAACP to find it offensive, myself.

    Using your analogy, the caricature acts much like depicting Jewish people as hook-nosed Shylocks grubbing for money.

    You have a right to be offended. Even when you have no reason to be so.

    Someone once said that the 1st Amendment grants you a right to speak. But, it doesn't grant you a right to an audience.

    That being said, goodbye. Enjoy being offended.

    It may be offensive, but it is the truth of what is going on.
    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.

    For some reason this whole thread makes me laugh.

    I suppose it is. It illustrates that blacks can be just as racist as whites. I don't find it offensive. I find it painfully true. It would have been funnier if the robes had been black though.

    I don't find it offensive. The KKK is long gone from being of any importance. It's now a comedic punchline when just 70-80 years ago it was a terrible and well feared organization by minorities and whites who didn't agree with the KKK (the KKK killed whites too if they wanted to liberate blacks).

    Nowadays... they're just clowns. So why not take that identity and stamp it on multiple groups that promote racial disharmony.

    And putting Netanyahu in a Nazi uniform is not racist at all. Jews were part of the Wehrmacht.
