Let's say you see Bush as a monkey in a cartoon and right next to it you see Obama portrayed as a monkey in a cartoon. If you reflexively allow yourself to be more upset about the Obama portrayal you're keeping racism alive yourself. You're saying NO that's ok to do to Bush but not Obama because Obama is DIFFERENT - HE'S BLACK!!!
Deal with racist pricks as you come across them, as you meet them. But don't look for racism. Don't allow yourself to get worked up anymore. And certainly don't look at two stupid pictures and tell yourself one is worse than the other because of the skin color of the person involved!!!!!
I find neither to be racist. Tasteless, but not racist.
