WTF Political Cartoons

REALLY, WISE? REALLY?
A bowl cut, buck teeth and thick glasses? Are you fucking kidding me, you motherfucking racist.
Jesus, I can barely even stand to address the cartoon itself, I’m so pissed off at that straight-from-the-1930’s caricature.
But let me try: people aren’t upset at China for making the Olympics team’s uniform. They’re upset at Ralph Lauren for getting the Chinese to do it. Really, the “Even Archie Bunker is offended by this” guy could just as easily say “Are they upset we make their iPods?”
At least then the cartoon would be insightful, rather than just “racist caricature saying racially-tinged ‘proverb.’”

Note also the Maoist uniforms that no-one in China wears any more.
