South American Website Posts Racist Obama Monkey Cartoon


Another Racist Obama Cartoon Hits Web

A Brazilian website has come under fire after posting what many deem as a racist cartoon referenced to Barack Obama leading up to his visit to the country.

The site Parana Online recently posted a cartoon featuring a monkey pondering,

“Obama will have for lunch for baião-for-two (a traditional rice-and-beans dish associated with Brazil’s predominantly-black northeast), steak, ice cream … and bananas, many bananas.”

Parana has since taken down the image, but not before it was snatched up by various media outlets.

President Obama recently made a five-day tour of Latin America and gave a national address in Brazil’s capitol city.

Peep the controversial cartoon below.

    Why the Fawk is South America mad? Bush never caught flack like this and Obama is paying for the damage he’s done. Smh. I really feel sorry for the people that claim to love God, especially here in America, but are racist or just all out hateful.
