    I'm mean unless the creator comes out and specifically says "yes I made it to make fun of black people and their skin color because they are all just pieces of ****" there's zero racism in the cartoon alone.

    Any claim of racism is an assumption and not based on the cartoon itself.

    Welcome to the forum, btw.

    Thanks!
    Reminds me of this:

    At about 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 18, Ms. Currie went to meet with President Clinton at the White House. She told the grand jury:

    He said that he had had his deposition yesterday, and they had asked several questions about Monica Lewinsky. And I was a little shocked by that or -- (shrugging). And he said -- I don't know if he said -- I think he may have said, "There are several things you may want to know," or "There are things -- " He asked me some questions.

    According to Ms. Currie, the President then said to her in succession:

    "You were always there when she was there, right? We were never really alone."

    "You could see and hear everything."

    "Monica came on to me, and I never touched her, right?"

    "She wanted to have sex with me, and I can't do that."

    Ms. Currie indicated that these remarks were "more like statements than questions."

    That's why I voted "no", not racist. But, seeing it as racist is not that much of a stretch. Depicting a black person with a "chocolate touch" is right on the line, IMO. It definitely implies race, that's almost indisputable. But I don't think it's racist.

    Re: Is this cartoon racist?

    What occurred to me while reading through this thread, and so many others like it, is this. People have a very thin skin and think of themselves as too important.
    "He called me babe, he harassed me"
    "She thinks being gay is a sin, she must hate me"
    "He painted Muhammad with a gun, he must be killed"
    "He referenced chocolate, he must be racist"
    "He, she, they...don't think like I do, they must be scum"
    Good grief, get a grip and try to find some commonality instead of faults, give others the benefit of the doubt. And yes, I included Muhammad cartoons on purpose. Why? Think about it. We bicker about stuff that is really not important and forget to look at the bigger picture.

    I agree and think that maybe if the cartoonist himself had some kind of history it might be even more of a stretch but I really don't know much about the guy so I can't say for sure it was or was not but I don't think it is.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Have some chocolate. Sugars cheer you up, if you can stomach the racism of a Hershey Bar.

    I love good chocolate like Godiva.

    You question was more like a statement the way Bill Clinton was leading Bettie Currie with questions.
