Well, I went through 25 pages of google image search and couldn't find this comic or anything like it. I guess it's possible that it actually existed, but I'm just guessing that gbaji just made the fucking thing up.
I think he just remembered incorrectly. His original comment was:
I assume you approve of a political cartoon depicting her as a house negro complete with nappy hair, no shoes, speaking stereotypically bad English, and eating corn on the cob (or watermelon, don't remember which)
But judging by the "The Condoleeza "gone with the wind" cartoon was just about her being black" comment, heads to tails he's referring to Jeff Danziger's "Gone with the Wind" cartoon of her:
Note the following: first, there is no nappy hair, corn on the cob, or watermelon, which makes me think that gbaji remembered this as much more racist than it is. Feel free to armchair psychoanalyze as to why THAT would be
I suspect there's a difference between a local SC newspaper and the NYT and Washington Post in terms of scope and whatnot.
Danziger worked for the LA Times, not the NY Times. If his cartoon was put there (and I can't find a record of it, but maybe it happened?), it would be as an editorial. You're welcome to find evidence of that, as I couldn't on any of Danziger's pages.
The Condoleeza "gone with the wind" cartoon was just about her being black.
Aluminum tubes are a black thing, now I see!
No, the cartoon was about her not understanding an issue, and then having to correct herself. The setting of the cartoon, however, was likely picked because of her race (note: Danziger said he got the idea from an African-American friend. Not that that would make it any more appropriate). But that's definitely not "just about her being black."
Hence my earlier comment that her biggest failure wasn't anything to do with her advice or actions, but with simply being black, female, and conservative.
I agree with Elinda here: "You're not only charging that the media is a left-wing conspiracy, as usual, but that they're also predujice against black people, but only republican ones. Do you see how utterly stupid you look?" Edited, Dec 1st 2011 8:16am by LockeColeMA
