Joe Biden, Kamala Harris Racist Cartoon
Rupert Murdoch’s The Australian is under fire for publishing an allegedly racist cartoon that depicts Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden referring to his running mate Kamala Harris as “this little brown girl.”

The cartoon by artist Johannes Leak was published earlier this week, attempted to call out the Democrats for their tokenism and racial pandering, according to the paper’s editor-in-chief, Christopher Dore.

The controversial cartoon depicts a smiling Joe Biden announcing that it’s time to “heal a nation divided by racism” before beckoning Harris to the podium while he goes “for a lie-down.”

Needless to say, the liberal social media mob’s backlash was swift and immediate.

Science writer Ketan Joshi described the cartoon as “ludicrously racist,”

But wait a minute…

Christopher Dore sent a note to staff stating:

“The words ‘little black and brown girls’ belong to Joe Biden, not Johannes, and were uttered by the presidential candidate when he named Kamala Harris as his running mate yesterday. He repeated them in a tweet soon after.

The intention of Johannes’s commentary was to ridicule identity politics and demean racism, not perpetuate it.

The Australian, and Johannes, opposes racism in all of its guises.”

But Joshi responded to Dore by stating that Joe Biden’s words had been taken out of context and twisted to use against him.

Defenders of the cartoon alluded to Joe Biden’s own alleged history of racism, and his pandering to skin color and gender when choosing Kamala Harris.
