Apposing Views reports that a Texas college is under fire for publishing a cartoon, mocking the blatant anti-white bias in the media, in its newspaper:
A college newspaper in Texas is under fire for a cartoon related to the Trayvon Martin case that some find offensive.
The New York Daily News reports that the cartoon appeared in the Daily Texan, the newspaper of the University of Texas at Austin…
The student who drew the cartoon said it was meant to be a commentary on the media coverage of the story.
“I feel the news should be unbiased. And in the retelling of this particular event, I felt that that was not the case,” Stephanie Eisner told the Daily Texan. “My story compared this situation to yellow journalism in the past, where aspects of news stories were blown out of proportion with the intention of selling papers and enticing emotions.”
However she didn’t seem to get her message across and many people found it offensive, especially the use of the word “colored.”
In an editorial, the newspaper’s adviser admitted Martin’s name should have been spelled correctly and perhaps “colored” could have been avoided. But Doug Warren defended the idea behind the cartoon.
Here’s the cartoon in question:
It would appear that some people are offended by the misspelling of “Trayvon” and the use of the term “colored boy”. Therefore I have taken it upon myself to fix it. Here is the new version – which can now be plastered all over the internet, billboards, bumper-stickers and flyers without fear of offending anybody:
To Stephanie Eisner: Great job! I hope you don’t mind my taking liberties with your superb cartoon.
