This is the cartoon that is the center of controversy.......
Freedom of Speech is one thing but DISRESPECT is another. I dont think the image deserves the riots and killings but I do think the images are insensitive and disrespectful.
Many americans do not understand why this is a big deal. Black americans should be more understanding. If the Danish Press publish a cartoon of a black slave hanging from a tree with black 'urban thugs' pointing guns at him, with a caption that read "Bush's Dream come true".... I think my first respose would be to riot. Understanding that violence inspires more violence, I would have to find another way to handle the issue. Maybe they will find another way, soon.
