Twitter reacts to 'racist' political cartoon in Australian newspaper


Recommended Posts


The people of Australia had a collective conniption recently when a Vanity Fair writer called the country “America 50 years ago.” But after the recent allegations of torture and abuse levelled at the Northern Territory government, and after today's "racist" political cartoon in one of the nation's biggest newspapers — people could be forgiven for thinking twice about whether that statement has more than a little legitimacy.
