New York State Senator Eric Adams stands in front of the New York Post building holding a cartoon that ran in the Post Wednesday in New York. A New York Post cartoon that some have interpreted as comparing President Barack Obama to a violent chimpanzee gunned down by police drew outrage Wednesday from civil rights leaders and elected officials who said it echoed racist stereotypes of blacks as monkeys. You can read the story and see a better photo of the cartoon here. (AP Photo/Craig Ruttle)

Question: What is your reaction to the cartoon and controversy?
