Editor,Please consider the Cagle cartoon on the editorial page of August 26. It shows a caricature of President Barack Obama (looking diabolical) saying, "If I had a son he'd look like the one [Trayvon Martin] killed by the white guy [George Zimmerman]...but not like the black teens that shot the white dude." Is this cartoon trying to imply that President Obama refuses to recognize that black people commit crimes as well as white people? Is the president supposed to be saying that black people are victims more than white people? Is he saying a black victim deserves more compassion than a white victim? And we are to conclude that President Obama is a racist?
