Now, come on, Drew. You know, as well as I, that no one can confront a black politician about anything or refer to a black politician as any character without being called a racist pig. But, black people get a free pass to perpetrate racism, everyday. No one need to look any further than Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton or that racist pig, himself, Rev. Wright.

While he makes his point very poorly, he still has a point. For years, there have been those that likened Bush to a monkey because he has physical attributes that appear 'ape like'. Now, when someone makes the same comparison to Obama, it's considered racist, because 'racists' have, in the past, referred to black people as 'monkeys'. I can understand that. But, in todays politics, one has to have a thick skin, lest their little feelings get hurt by incidents such as this one. I don't like the comparison, either. But I didn't like it any better when Bush was compared to a monkey. The best thing Obama could do to spite the assholes selling these shirts would be to walk up to them, buy one, change into it and wear it. That would get their craw worse than anything.

I don't recall anyone comparing Clinton to any animal species, but you are free to correct me, if I'm wrong. I have seen hundreds of cartoons depicting Bush with a side skewed lip, huge ears and beady eyes. It will be interesting to see if Obama will be portrayed with his huge ears in political cartoons. I suspect most references to his physical characteristics will be deemed off limits to most newspapers and cartoonists. Watch and see.

No, you don't get it! He's actively applying his racist view and I am actively applying my angry reply; it's a free country and he admitted that's the reason he loves America, I do too
As to the double standard that's another thread all by itself and I will tend to agree with you on some of your points but that's not the case here. Multipurpose is a racist, it's plain and simple

Fucking racist.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
