If you want irrefutable evidence that the election of Barack Obama does not mark the end of racism in this country take a look at this. It is an editorial cartoon that actually ran in the Ashville (North Carolina) Citizen Times newspaper on Monday, February 9, 2009. The ideas embodied in the cartoon and the decision to publish it are about as pure expressions of racism as can be imagined.
