Apparently some people were not aware of the recent news story involving a chimpanzee that police shot and killed:
Doctors say a Connecticut woman mauled by a 200-pound chimpanzee is making slight progress after more than seven hours of surgery by four teams of surgeons. Dr. Kevin Miller of Stamford Hospital says 55-year-old Charla Nash suffered extensive facial and hand injuries when she was attacked Monday. He says stabilizing her condition took more than seven hours of surgery.
Nash was attended by hand specialists, plastic surgeons and specialists in orthopedics, ophthalmology and trauma.
Miller says it's good that Nash has made some progress, but she has a long way to go.
Nash was attacked by a 14-year-old domesticated chimpanzee owned by her friend, Sandra Herold of Stamford. Police shot and killed the chimp.
Al Sharpton had stated that this cartoon was racially biased...He's quoted as stating:
"The cartoon in today's New York Post is troubling at best given the historic racist attacks of African-Americans as being synonymous with monkeys. One has to question whether the cartoonist is making a less than casual reference to this when in the cartoon they have police saying after shooting a chimpanzee that "Now they will have to find someone else to write the stimulus bill."
Evidently Sharpton forgot about this type of thing, which if the cartoon chimp was Obama, which it doesn't appear it was in this case, why is it okay to compare one president to a monkey and not the other? If it's wrong, then it's wrong, but considering the news of the Connecticut woman, it's hard to argue this was racially motivated.
Let's not monkey around with this one...
