UH Daily Cougar Op Editor James Davis and Ed in Chief Matt Dulin screw up 'Offend NAACP with racist editorial cartoon' (Both DC editors should resign)
First instinct is usually what is printed in the newspaper business, and the editorial cartoon of September 19th (which looks exactly like the editorial cartoon of September 16th) certainly proved the point that if you are not gay or lesbian 'anything is game' at the UH Daily Cougar. They are now in major damage control alert. September 19ths actual editorial cartoon is shown to the left and depicts an unfair stereotype of a Katrina evacuee at the Hermann Hospital emergency room. Editor in Chief Matt Dulin's "From the Editor in Chief," segment this morning takes blame, but this has gone far enough. It is time to clear the slate at the UH Daily Cougar. Fire 'em all.
UHCU's good friend 'Saved By The Bell' reported that NAACP-UH demands that editors at the UH Daily Cougar start resigning. Saved By The Bell scooped Garbo (whose e-mail came at 5:35 this morning) on this, and Garbo knows a lot on campus.
Saved By The Bell reported the follow NAACP-UHs demands:
- Resignation of Matt Dulin.
- Resignation of Arturo Gonzalez (cartoonists)
- Resignation of Opinion Editor James Davis
- A University fee funded periodical from a minority perspective
- A formal written apology from the University President, Editor in Chief, Opinion Editor, and the Cartoonist.
Saved By The Bell also reported that the NAACP-UH is organizing, "making flyers, and asking people to call the president, the Cougar, Matt Dulin, James Davis, and they are trying to get people to attend the Student Publication meeting in the UC Satellite on September 29 in the Alison Room at 4 PM."
UHCU will have people there.
The UH Daily Cougar's removing of the evidence from the September 19th Daily Cougar archives is a testament to their low-down dirty campaign to cover their asses and not stand up "like a man" when you do wrong. This is equivalent to shredding documents in the Clinton White House.UH Daily Cougar Editor in Chief Matt Dulin in an attempt to save himself is fessing up to the incident. How could he have avoided it. Even I saw it on Fox 26 last night, and they got his last name wrong.
Matt Dulin's apology should not be accepted by the Black, White, Asian or Hispanic community on UH or Houston for that fact, and the Staff Editorial today "Cartoon represents one person's viewpoint," tries to brush off the incident solely on Arturo Gonzalez by stating that "an editorial cartoon is like an opinion column -- it represents one person's viewpoint, not those of the staff."
Of course cartoons that are offensive to President Bush or Conservatives are readily submitted and accept by UH liberals, but when liberals are offended every once in a while, well stop the presses.
The shameless attempt for Editor in Chief Matt Dulin and the UH Daily Cougar Editorial Staff to say the editorial cartoons represent one-persons point of view is an easy cope out. They know that pictures speak louder than words, just as they did in the 19th Century when "Boss Tweed" was shown to be a bad guy in a relatively illiterate society and was subsequently thrown out of office.
I am not accepting the apology of the Editor in Chief Matt Dulin, the UH Daily Cougar Editorial Staff, or the cartoonist. That cartoon section for sure represents their thoughts when it doesn't offend liberals. And the whole lot is guilty as if Gonzalez had put the pencil into their hands himself.
UH Daily Cougar readers -- don't let UH Daily Cougar Opinion Editor James Davis or Editor in Chief Matt Dulin get away with this. Don't let them keep their jobs. If they can get away with this -- they can get away with anything. If they keep their jobs by your grace, think of yourselves as enabling child molesters. Its the same thing. No doubt.
Editor in Chief Matt Dulin does want to hear from you. "I want to hear what you have to say, and so does the UH community. My office is in Room 151, Communication Building; my phone number is (713) 743-5302; my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org."
I pray that Editor in Chief Matt Dulin gets a good reception of resignation request. CLEAR THE SLATE. Tyler Nelson, I think you just got promoted to the new Editor in Chief of the Cougar.
Screw the libs!
Katrina victims deserve our charity, but of course only when it is truly needed, so that the safety net Houstonians have provided does not become a hammock. Best thing Houston can do now is for some of our companies to look to invest in New Orleans as it is rebuilt so that there will be a vibrant job market for people to return to. I encourage anyone who is a position to hire people to look for a way to hire some of the evacuees or look for a way to invest in New Orleans. With Houston being the energy capital of the world and with New Orleans important role in the Energy industry there should be some natural opportunities.
Of course Mayor Nagin needs to take a leadership role in courting corporate America to invest in the rebuilding and to stimulate the kind of growth that will help the evacuees most, especially those who have lost everything. They are going to need jobs and it is up to Nagin to promote New Orleans as a place for corporate America to create them.
I certainly don't agree with the choices that some of the poor in Louisiana may have made in their lives before the hurricane. I realize many have been brainwashed by the liberals like Nagin and Blanco who have kept them in chains of government dependency, and an unnecessary since of disempowerment.
However, racism should never be acceptable in America. If you don't like beliefs some people have or choices that some people have made then you should focus on changing their minds through a free marketplace of ideas. Pandering to racial sterotypes can never do this, and certainly it is never going to get anyone to listen to your ideas.
Acts like the publication of this cartoon only strengthen the Jesse Jacksons, Al Sharptons, and Louis Farrakhan’s of this world. Things like this keep our nation and our economy far below their potential.
So much initiative, talent, entrepreneurship, and wealth is lost because of race pimps and those who would give them ammunition like those involved with the publication of this cartoon encourage a sense of inferiority and entitlement to the earnings of others. I've never changed a baby's poopy diaper but I'm sure if I ever do I will find something like this cartoon inside.
Hopefully the first class ticket those who published this bought on the cheap-shot express will prove to be very costly indeed.
All humans are created in Gods image and have greatness within them. Racists and those who promote the victimization of minorities through racist acts deny Gods wisdom in creating us with so many wonderfully different appearances that enrich our small world.
Racists spread the lies that these surface qualities somehow determine who we are, and what we should believe, and that somehow some of us are superior and some of us are therefore inferior because of these surface qualities that do not define us, but rather enrich humanity as a whole.
The prevailing consensus from both anthropologists and geneticists who have studied the issue have come to the conclusion that indeed life started in East Africa and that all humans are really descended from there.
I wonder how many generations it took for my ancestors features to lighten and change enough as they wandered into Northern Europe that I no longer closely resembled my African relatives in Kenya or Ethiopia with whom I have a God given common ancestry.
I am grateful for our genetic diversity that we enjoy today because it will keep the species alive. Were it not for our diversity a virus or other pathogen could potentially wipe our entire species.
