Is This Cartoon Racist?



The editorial page editor at the Jacksonville Times-Union is apologizing for allowing this cartoon to be printed, saying he shouldn't have allowed the word "ho" to be printed in his newspaper. But for folks offended by the cartoon, use of the word that got Don Imus fired is the least of this cartoon's transgressions.

What do you think blogreaders (and I'm hoping for opinions without insulting stereotypes about what all black people do in their neighborhoods)? If we all agree that the stop snitching effort is a trend in certain neighborhoods -- and 60 Minutes reported it, so it must be -- is this image fair game?

(Looks like the blog software is cutting off the rapper's words, which are "Now that's a good little ho!")
