Ladies and gentlemen, the newest stamp from the Mexican postal service, commemorating a beloved cartoon character named "Memin Pinguin".

mexican stamp

Yeah, I actually had to lj-cut a stamp. I guess there must be about 8 black people in Mexico. Reminds me of the Sambo-ish caricatures in Japan.

I like this one the best, just gets all those loose ends of racism in one place.

Bush himself did not take a stand on the flag, though, slyly, his wife, Laura, publicly stated that she does not believe the flag is racist.
