the NAACP feels the same way. On Sat, Feb 21, 2009, NAACP President and CEO, Benjamin Todd Jealous, described the Post’s response as “half an apology” and called for a boycott of the NY Post, and disciplinary action against the Post Editor and the Cartoonist who created the illustration.
The illustration sends many subliminal messages, including, as the NAACP head stated, an “invitation to assassination”. In my opinion, there is nothing positive about the cartoon. Measures should be taken to address the resulting damage.
