The Indianapolis Star featured a Gary Varvel cartoon that offended a wide group of readers, and many viewed it as racist.

The paper states that “Gary did not intend to be racially insensitive in his attempt to express his strong views about President Barack Obama’s decision to temporarily prevent the deportation of millions of immigrants living and working illegally in the United States.”

Those are strong words to justify an offensive cartoon:

[su_center_ad]”But we erred in publishing it,” the paper says.

The cartoon depicted an immigrant family climbing through a window of a white family’s home as Thanksgiving dinner was served. I was uncomfortable with the depiction when I saw it after it was posted. We initially decided to leave the cartoon posted to allow readers to comment and because material can never truly be eliminated once it is circulating on the web. But we are removing the cartoon from the opinion section of our website, as well as an earlier version posted on Facebook that showed one character with a mustache.

This action is not a comment on the issue of illegal immigration or a statement about Gary’s right to express his opinions strongly. We encourage and support diverse opinion. But the depictions in this case were inappropriate; his point could have been expressed in other ways.

The paper says that Gary “intended to illustrate the view of many conservatives and others that the president’s order will encourage more people to pour into the country illegally.”

Except Obama is not allowing criminals to remain in the country.  Congress held onto the immigration bill for over 500 days. There was plenty of opportunity for the right wing to create an alternative.

This cartoon was simply a scare-mongering tactic:

The cartoon is gone, but the image can never be deleted from the Internet. [su_csky_ad]

      Paranoid much?

      • R.J. Carter November 22nd, 2014 at 9:34 pm

        It’s a metaphor.

        • jasperjava November 23rd, 2014 at 12:05 am

          Which means it cannot be “factual”.

          • R.J. Carter November 24th, 2014 at 9:22 am

            No, it doesn’t mean that at all. Metaphors are frequently used to put the factual into terms that people can more easily comprehend.

            I wish I had a handy metaphor to explain that, but I don’t.

      • Robert M. Snyder November 22nd, 2014 at 9:45 pm

        Any third grader would understand that the window in that cartoon represents the border, and that the people coming through the window represent the people who enter the USA illegally, instead of knocking on the front door and waiting to be invited in.

        • Anomaly 100 November 23rd, 2014 at 6:13 am

          And here I am at 56-years-old feeling offended by that cartoon. In fact, if you read the post, it said that many (most) people viewed it as racist. I am not shocked that you don’t get it.

        • jasperjava November 23rd, 2014 at 6:56 am

          Of course the cartoon is metaphorical. That’s what makes Susan Beatrice’s comment that it is somehow “factual” so ridiculous.

    • KABoink_after_wingnut_hacker November 22nd, 2014 at 8:23 pm

      ‘Shameful’ or ‘deceitful’ are more accurate words.

    • Carla Akins November 22nd, 2014 at 8:35 pm

      So this is an undocumented worker? His skin tone is darker and he has a mustache – quick, deport him.

      • Robert M. Snyder November 22nd, 2014 at 9:12 pm

        Do you believe that the US has a right to limit immigration across any of its borders?

        • burqa November 22nd, 2014 at 11:24 pm

          Of course we have a right. We have a whole agency devoted to the subject. Guess you never heard of the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

          But we need to decide, as our president said, whether those opposing immigration or who have unrealistic expectations as to sealing the border and whether they are adhering to the principles this nation was founded upon.

          We can go to the Founding Fathers for wisdom. The following is one of the reasons we decided to found a new nation, given in the Declaration of Independence, where they outlined the problems they had with King George III:

          “… He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, …”

          Our national tradition is to show our better sides and welcoming immigrants with a smile and a covered dish. We have plenty of room and now is just the time to have millions more taxpayers. With the demographic spike of retiring baby boomers, we need more people paying SS taxes to finance their benefits.
          The opposition to immigrants comes from the uglier sides of human nature and that impulse is to be resisted in favor of treating others the way we would like to be treated in the same situation.

          • Robert M. Snyder November 22nd, 2014 at 11:55 pm

            Again, I am agreeing with most of what you have written. But if we really care about helping those less fortunate, then why not put Afghan refugees first?

            Mexico is a relatively wealthy nation, with GDP per capita of $10,307 compared with $53,143 for the US. For Afghanistan the figure is $678. The current policy amounts to “If you can manage to find a way to cross our border, we’ll help you.”.

            It takes reasonably good health and a certain amount of resources to make the journey. So let’s not kid ourselves into thinking we are operating some kind of “outreach” program. For every one person who makes it to the US, there and hundreds who lack the means to do so. At least charities like Feed the Children actually have a plan to help those most in need. Our immigration policy does not reflect planning. It is basically just an acceptance of the status quo.

            There is something troubling about the notion of permitting Latinos to come to America in order to support the baby boomers in retirement. Maybe that also reflects one of the uglier sides of human nature.

          • Susan Beatrice Karimchise November 25th, 2014 at 11:23 am

            “opposition to immigrants “?
            Immigrants are welcomed if they enter the country legally with the prior approval of our government.

        • Carla Akins November 23rd, 2014 at 6:06 am

          Yes, of course.

          • Robert M. Snyder November 23rd, 2014 at 1:00 pm

            As you know, most countries have complicated histories during which people and borders have moved and various groups of people have claimed ownership of various tracts of land at various times. For example, the original inhabitants of Mexico and Central America were largely wiped out by diseases brought to that region by Spanish explorers and settlers, who also brought the Spanish language and the Catholic faith, which largely displaced previous languages and faiths in that region.
            The current borders of the US were largely determined by the outcomes of military conflicts between groups of European settlers: Spanish in Central and South America, French and British in North America.
            You have said that the US has a right to limit immigration across its borders. My question is: Where does that right come from?
            Given the fact that national borders are rarely established in a way that is agreeable to the parties on both sides, it would seem that the right of ownership is based in military superiority.
            If not military superiority, than what? What gives the US a right to limit immigration across its borders? How would you justify it?

      And who do you think picked the produce for your Thanksgiving table?

      • Susan Beatrice Karimchise November 23rd, 2014 at 9:21 am

        Only a small percentage of illegal immigrants pick produce.
        To say that they all pick produce is false.
        When I can drive by any Home Depot and see 20 to 30 men congregating on the sidewalk outside, looking for day labor jobs, it is patently obvious that they are not picking produce.

        • Melissa L. November 23rd, 2014 at 9:27 pm

          That is a pathetic response. Instead of acknowledging the fact that illegals ARE the ones providing that produce you go off on a tangent. Try feeling some gratitude – it might do your heart good.

          • Susan Beatrice Karimchise November 24th, 2014 at 8:38 am

            That’s just your opinion.
            Enjoy your feeling of self righteousness.
            I believe in being fair to the millions of people who came here legally, not the bleeding heart mentality, that throws all logic out the window.

          • Melissa L. November 24th, 2014 at 8:56 am

            The fact is, Susan, that the only illegals Republicans scream about ARE non-white. The illegals who work the fields to pick the produce we will serve on our Thanksgiving tables are treated like slaves. But obviously I’m speaking to someone who is more worried about not appearing like a “bleeding heart” than about her fellow humans, who are persecuted simply for trying to find a better quality of life, away from massive violence and life-threatening poverty. I’ll take being a bleeding heart over a hard-heart every time, and wear the honor proudly.

          • Susan Beatrice Karimchise November 24th, 2014 at 9:17 am

            India has a billion people , many of them are whole families who live on the street.
            I am sure they would like a better quality of life.
            Should we bring them all here?

          • Melissa L. November 24th, 2014 at 9:59 am

            And this just shows you’re not here to have an actual conversation, but just to say, “I’m right! I’m right! I’m aaaaaaalways right!”. If you decide to converse with intelligence and thoughtfulness I’ll happily continue to engage. Otherwise (and I believe it will be otherwise), I won’t comment further.

          • Susan Beatrice Karimchise November 24th, 2014 at 12:04 pm

    • arc99 November 22nd, 2014 at 10:57 pm

      Being factual does not prevent a statement from being racist

      The following two statements both state the same fact

      1. A black man is walking down the street
      2. A n*gg*r is walking down the street

      Both statements convey the exact same fact.

      Only one is racist

  3. jasperjava November 22nd, 2014 at 8:12 pm

    “the image can never be deleted from the internet.”

    I wish I could delete that racist cartoon from my brain.

    • Robert M. Snyder November 22nd, 2014 at 9:06 pm

      “I wish I could delete that racist cartoon from my brain.”
      Which begs the question of why it is deemed “okay” to reproduce it here, but not in the newspaper where it was originally published. Are the readers of this forum somehow more discerning than the average newspaper reader?

  4. jasperjava November 22nd, 2014 at 8:17 pm

    Deeply ironic how this cartoon negates the meaning of the original thanksgiving. The myth that has come down is that the native Americans welcomed the White Puritan illegal immigrants and helped them survive their first harsh winter.

    Welcoming strangers? How Unchristian.

    • KABoink_after_wingnut_hacker November 22nd, 2014 at 8:19 pm

      Well said jasperjava.

    • Robert M. Snyder November 22nd, 2014 at 8:54 pm

      “…the native Americans welcomed the White Puritan illegal immigrants…”

      And how did that work out for the native Americans?

      When people move, cultures move. Did the native Americans have a right to protect their culture and resources? Do the present day British have a right to restrict immigration from eastern European countries? Do the French and Italians have a right to limit immigration from northern Africa, in order to protect their own distinctive cultures?

      In California we see an agricultural sector and an ever-increasing population consuming more water than the state’s water system can provide. In 2010, about 38% of all foreign-born Mexican immigrants lived in California. There may be enough turkey for everyone, but I’m not so sure about the water.


      • R.J. Carter November 22nd, 2014 at 9:34 pm

        Yeah, not exactly the best example, from a historical perspective.

      • burqa November 22nd, 2014 at 11:13 pm

        Robert M. Snyder: “And how did that work out for the native Americans?”

        When they lived together in peace it worked out pretty well.

        In terms of your cultural argument, our culture is noted for being one composed of a mix of many. We not only tolerate, we celebrate other cultures with Chinese New Years Day parades and everyone is Irish on St. Patrick’s Day. Where I live we have a fabulous Greek festival every year and I have friends who are American Indians and periodically put on demonstrations of their culture.
        Ever met anyone who speaks Gullah?
        Our cities have Chinatowns and Little Italy’s. There are many other areas of our country where there is a strong ethnic identity of one sort or another. Read “Charlie Wilson’s War” and check out the part about Gust Avrakatos’ experiences with several different communities of Greeks, Rumanians, Hungarians and a few others in Pennsylvania. In New Orleans we have that wonderful Creole culture, Spanish and French culture is found in many places, and of course there are the Armenians in California.
        Within our various ethnic groups can be significant differences. A neighborhood of Irish descendants in Massachusetts may be quite different than Irish descendants in North Carolina.

        No, really! Take a look around, I’m not making this up!

      • StoneyCurtisll November 23rd, 2014 at 6:55 am

        If the US hadn’t taken nearly 1/3 of Mexico’s territory at the point of a gun/cannon and bayonet, there would be no Mexican immigrants in California.
        The US were the ‘illegal immigrants’ when we invaded Mexico in 1846-48.
        We took over Mexico through violence..
        Today they just want to come back home, from the land we stole from them.

        • Robert M. Snyder November 23rd, 2014 at 12:30 pm

          “We took over Mexico through violence.”
          That’s only the latest chapter in the story. The previous chapter was the Spaniards taking over Mexico and Central America, which explains why Spanish is the predominant language south of the Rio Grande. Cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco didn’t get their names from the Mayans and Incas. Modern day Mexicans are the descendants of Spanish immigrants who brought the same diseases to Mexico and Guatemala that French and English immigrants brought to North America. The original inhabitants of Mexico and Guatemala were largely wiped out by these diseases. So what we’re looking at today is one group of European settlers south of the Rio Grande and another group of European settlers north of the Rio Grande.

      “White Puritan illegal immigrants”? I did not realize native Americans had immigration laws back in the sixteen hundreds to classify the puritans as ‘Illegal”. And they call my generation lazy and dumb. You and the people that liked this need to pick up a book and stop trying to use examples from the history in which they know nothing about. The first immigration law in history came to fruition during the early eighteen hundreds. The Native Americans had no written laws and no system of writing. Here’s a REAL fact from history though: This country was founded by immigrants. : )

      • jasperjava November 23rd, 2014 at 6:26 am

        Boy, are you literal.
        Of course I used “illegal immigrants” in a facetious way, to highlight the difference in attitudes towards newcomers between the native Americans in the Thanksgiving mythos versus the bigoted attitudes displayed by today’s conservatives.

        Being overly literal and unable to understand metaphor is the sign of an inflexible mind.

    On the subject whether blacks can be racists – this just in from HuffPo:

    The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups, says the New Black Panther Party “is a virulently racist and anti-Semitic organization whose leaders have encouraged violence against whites, Jews and law enforcement officers.” Members of the separatist group “frequently engage in armed protests of alleged police brutality,” the law center reports.

    • R.J. Carter November 22nd, 2014 at 9:51 pm

      Plus, they like to build bombs and straw-purchase illegal weapons for the purpose of killing cops.

      • Anomaly 100 November 23rd, 2014 at 6:35 am

        I had an epic Twitter argument with someone about the New Black Panthers. It’s my thinking that she was young and had no idea of the two different groups. She kept telling me that they were in Ferguson and how awesome they are. I told her what a big mistake that is and that the protesters should distance themselves from them asap.

        I wish I could remember her Twitter handle so I could send her a link to the latest incident regarding the bombs.

    • arc99 November 22nd, 2014 at 10:14 pm

      The New Black Panthers have been widely denounced in the black community, including the members of the real Black Panther party in Oakland California.

      Their membership is maybe a dozen people (if that). Their most noteworthy accomplishment was being used by FOX news trying to whip up fear and paranoia about all the scarey black people taking over the country.

      They are a bunch of fringe lunatics no more representative of the black community than Tim McVeigh was of conservative caucasian Christian gun owners.

      So what the hell is your point?

      The Huey P. Newton Foundation Inc., created in 1993 and co-founded by Fredrika Newton, Black Panther leader Huey P. Newton’s widow, said in a statement that the original party was “never a group of angry young militants full of fury toward the white establishment … but operated on love for black people, not hatred of white people.

      Agreed. Anyone who emigrated to the US legally would not think the cartoon was talking about them. It’s not making a point about race. It’s making a point about behavior. Legal immigrants don’t enter through the window. They knock on the front door and wait to be invited in.

      As wrong-headed as George Will often is, he generally refrains from using racial slurs in his columns.

      This cartoon’s visual “language” reflects the irrational bigoted fear and loathing that conservatives feel towards immigrants.

            I always see the super hero character from the movie The Watchers. Uggh, what a dark film.

          Sometimes these “Rorschach” images are painfully clear. Wouldn’t you object to cartoons depicting Jews as hook-nosed money-grubbing bankers? Or blacks as thick-lipped watermelon-eating shiftless layabouts?

          Mexicans as mustachioed home invaders gives off a similar vibe.

            You are beating a dead horse

          • jasperjava November 23rd, 2014 at 7:55 am

            Racism may be dead to you, but not to those who struggle against it every day.

          • rg9rts November 23rd, 2014 at 8:23 am

            You don’t get it…nothing to see move on

        There is no fear or loathing toward immigrants, it’s about wanting our nation to be able to control it’s national border. Does not the rule of law matter to you?

  10. StoneyCurtisll November 23rd, 2014 at 7:06 am

    I found the ‘cartoon’ in poor taste..
    maybe a little racist also because they didn’t depict Asian or European ‘illegal immigrants’ that are living in the USA who have ‘illegally’ over stayed their visas..
    Not that any of them bother me..

    • Scott Garling November 23rd, 2014 at 10:14 am

      I don’t think those cross our border and have anchor babies to the tune of thousands. And those “Overstayed Visas”? What in fresh hell do you think a Visa is? oh yeah.. Documentation. We’re talking UNDOCUMENTED folks here, Stoney. This isn’t racist, stop playing the Race Card. you’re wearing it out. Remember that story about the Boy that Cried Wolf? You libs shout Racism so much when it does happen nobody is listening

      • StoneyCurtisll November 23rd, 2014 at 10:39 am

        Glad to see you get that off your chest…(although you are still wrong)
        Do you feel better now?

      • StoneyCurtisll November 23rd, 2014 at 10:46 am

        You seem angry…
        May I recommend you take three deep breaths before you comment again.

      • m2old4bs November 23rd, 2014 at 11:58 am

        A visa is only a valid document as long as it is not expired. Once the expiration date has been crossed and nothing has been done to extend it, the validity of the visa is voided. Your point of documentation is moot and meaningless. There are plenty of Latin Americans who hold an expired work visa card. It is not only the European and Asian workers who hold an expired visa. And yes, European, Asian and Canadian illegal migrants do have anchor babies as well. As far as the “boy who cried wolf” story: Perhaps you conservative folks can remember that when you spout off your xenophobic, fear mongoring, hateful rhetoric – a race card we’ve had the displeasure of being subjected to way too often over the last 6 years from those on the fundamental conservative side. And yes, the cartoon is racist.

        like rubio

  11. Wayout November 23rd, 2014 at 7:47 am

    What’s the problem? The cartoon shows is un-invited “guests” coming into someone’s home. Sort of like all the uninvited people coming into our nation. It’s spot on.

    • Anomaly 100 November 23rd, 2014 at 8:15 am

      I’m so not shocked you’d think that.

      • OldLefty November 23rd, 2014 at 8:21 am

        Funny, how it doesn’t show the un-invited “guests” coming from Europe.

        • Anomaly 100 November 23rd, 2014 at 9:02 am

          Some people don’t think this is a racist cartoon, yet there they are, brown people busting in the windows of people’s homes, to grab their food. As if it has ever happened.

          • chicano2nd November 23rd, 2014 at 9:59 am

            And some whites like you are really subhumans!

          • m2old4bs November 23rd, 2014 at 11:45 am

            Wow chicano2nd, did you truly understand Anomaly 100’s post? You must be a big Ted Nugent fan, considering the diatribe you posted.

          • Mike Butkus Jr. November 23rd, 2014 at 8:37 pm

            And some whites like you are really subhumans! Now what???

    People choose whether or not to be offended and are the only ones responsible for their feelings.
    Whether someone chooses to characterize an expression of thought as offensive, racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, anti- sexual deviancy, etc.; the fact is it is constitutionally protected speech.
    It is quite likely that those who would “bully” an apology for the cartoon also claim to be anti-bullying.
    The cartoon was probably removed because it was not intended to become a story in itself and some people obviously chose to take issue with it because they could not rebuke the message.

  13. Pundit456 November 23rd, 2014 at 6:27 pm

    And as far as Obama not allowing criminals to stay in the country, people who occupy property in this country without authorization are trespassing; trespassing is a crime; people who commit crimes are criminals; so yes he is allowing criminals to stay in this country.

    They are breaking law just by being here! Get phuck outta of Amerika!

      the “Indians” feel the same way about you!

    Stupid cartoon anyway. Tacos, not turkey, right?
