Subject: my swine flu and Mexico cartoon on Slate


Hello,


Just wanted to let you know that after my swine flu was published on Slate, and linked to CNN, I have gotten 1000s of visitors to my blog and website, lots of hate mail (my first) and been labeled a racist on at least 5 blogs. And here. Because all the commenters also call me racist, I've been called that hundreds of times this week. First time ever. Here is my blog and you can also see the cartoon there. Do you think it's racist?

These blogs are such haters and have absolutely RUINED my good name.

I've done cartoons for over 250 publications, including The New Yorker, LA Times, Harvard Business Review, Glamour, USA Weekend, WSJ and lots more. I'm a regular in Barron's and Parade.

I'm also a contributor to Mayor Sam.

Kind Regards,
Donna Barstow

When did Mexico and it's people become a race? :confused:

The left overuses the term to where it is meaningless. :rolleyes:

How would you say it PC. Natve American mixed with Spanish American. A mexican friend told me he was Latino. I told him the hot girls were latino but he was just a little brown mexican.
