WaPo Cowards Regret Their Lapse

The cartoon below accompanied an article in the Washington Post about women being sexually aroused by watching apes have sex:


But then WaPo realized that the cartoon is racist, and posted this apology to Al Sharpton et al.:

The magazine was printed before a widely publicized incident last week in which a chimpanzee attacked and badly mauled a woman in Stamford, Conn. In addition, the image and text inadvertently may conjure racial stereotypes that The Post does not countenance. We regret the lapse.

Unless they are confessing that they can't tell the difference between monkeys and blacks, WaPo's craven editors are attempting to forestall the sort of run-in with the race grievance industry the New York Post just experienced.

Our new era of "postracial politics" sure is a great time to be a race hustler. Sharpton has the establishment media snuffling his malodorous tail feathers without even having to ask.
