    Re: Is this cartoon racist?

    As someone who sees racism as a lot more prevalent than most any right-leaning person here, no, I don't see racism in the cartoon. And believe me, I think the national dialgue regarding Obama is buried under a mountain of racism.

    There are so many racist things in this world that one does not need to take something that isn't racist and say that it is.

    The cartoonist started with the idea of Obama turning everything into feces and from there added the bit about chocolate to create a punch line. Otherwise, it would have been very blunt but not funny to anybody.

    That is correct. The popular view on this is right because it is right, not because it is popular.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    You are correct, it would have been less controversial to use something else in the cartoon. But like talk radio political cartoonist thrive on controversy.

    Nearly correct. People use the term "racist" as an I win button. If they can label some one as racist, they do not have to argue their politics. It is used alot by people of both sides. The connection is poor debate skill, not ideology.
