    Guilt by association is a valid argument now?

    See I think in order to be different you just have to let the dumb stuff go. Just let it go. Refuse to acknowledge it.

    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!!!!!

    No, I associate the stimulus bill with an idiot congress that let Obama have his way from the onset.

    I'm not concluding anything as I can't decide if the cartoon was racist or just retarded. Alright, I get the news reference (escaped monkey goes on face biting rampage), but why throw in the reference of a stimulus bill, and who did write the stimulus bill? While I know that a lot of people contributed to it, is the stimulus bill not Obama's baby?

    As with all bills, it was written by the legislature.

    By assuming that I'm all "worked up" about this, you're not getting my point. Try not to imagine that I'm currently sobbing my eyes out in front of the monitor.

    I find neither to be racist. Tasteless, but not racist.

    Fine. I'll just add that if you're wondering if something is racist, trying to decide if maybe it is, trying to rationalize how it could be then why not just go with it's NOT and let it roll away?
