You'd think that newspaper editors would be professional enough not to air out their racist thoughts.
It seems that the new trend is to carry out a racist gesture and then deny it with a "oh, I didn't know that was offensive". This is not far off the Spanish basketball team and Miley Cyrus' "slant-eye" photos. In fact, it's even worse, since it deals with murder.
The New York Post ran the cartoon below, the day after President Obama signed the stimulus bill.
"It seems unthinkable that an editor of a newspaper would not understand the history of Black folks being depicted as monkeys and apes or the recent spate of death threats against President Obama. Worse, when confronted, Post editor Col Allan dismissed people's concerns as baseless." - from colorofchange.org
It's one thing that they ran such a cartoon, but to deny any racist intentions, nor the fact that they even knew the history of black people being depicted as monkeys is even more absurd.
It's 2009 and people need to stop this b-s. If the world is to recover from bigger problems, such as the economic crisis, terrorism, global warming,etc..., people are gonna get out of the "pre-civil rights era"-frame of mind.

Some people will tell you that it's just a company-invented reason to sell
Therefore, St. Valentine performed secret marriage cermonies behind Claudius' back.
Although, it has become just another reason to sell Hallmark products, it's really no different from Christmas or Easter (after all, what did Jesus' crucifixion have to do with bunnies and Easter Eggs?).
