David Cole on apparently the most “racist” cartoon ever this week…
It’s racist because the black child is “small” compared with the adult. Seriously, I ought to be hardened enough by now that it shouldn’t bother me that a college professor thinks it’s racist to portray a black child as being smaller than an adult. But no. Even with all the outrageous nonsense I cover each week, this one stands out as uniquely retarded.
The cartoon was pulled from the IPI website, and four of Rauner’s staffers were forced to resign. And most important, the “scandal” wiped away all memory of Rauner’s post-Charlottesville Trump denunciation and anti-racist prostrations. Rauner was now the worst Nazi of all time, because of a cartoon he didn’t draw that appeared on a website he doesn’t control.
Following the heroic banishment of the evil doodle, I decided to try a little experiment.
