See the Cartoon that Liberals are Calling “Racist” Forcing the IndyStar to Censor it!

Indiana political cartoonist Gary Varvel has stirred up a bit of controversy with his most recent political cartoon attacking President Obama’s Executive Amnesty. Apparently some of the liberal readers thought it was “racist” and the IndyStar decided to appease them by removing the cartoon from their website.

Here’s what the IndyStar had to say

On Friday, we posted a Gary Varvel cartoon at that offended a wide group of readers.

Many of them labeled it as racist. Gary did not intend to be racially insensitive in his attempt to express his strong views about President Barack Obama’s decision to temporarily prevent the deportation of millions of immigrants living and working illegally in the United States.

But we erred in publishing it.

As a Latino… i’m not exactly sure what the “racial” problem here is. The vast majority of the illegal immigrants currently living in America are from Latin America (and a vast majority of those are from Mexico).
