The NAACP has urged readers to boycott the New York Post after they published a cartoon that some say likens President Obama to a gunned down chimpanzee. NAACP President Benjamin Todd Jealous called the cartoon "an invitation to assassination."
Jealous said the drawing opened "racial wounds" and urged the N.Y. Post to remove editor-in-chief Col Allan and cartoonist Sean Delonas. While the paper issued an apology on their website, Jealous said it was "half an apology, without elaboration."
The NAACP Chairman said the cartoon was published without any thought and said "Anyone who is not offended by it does not have any sensitivity." The NAACP said they will intensify their efforts if the Post doesn't take "serious disciplinary action."
