Compare this cartoon (and the previous one, by Dr. Seuss) with Ann Telnaes' "Vermin" (16 Sept. 2001, scroll down to third cartoon) and Cameron Cardow's "WHY DOES EVERYONE JUST ASSUME MY GUILT?" (17 Sept. 2001, scroll down to last cartoon), both of which appear among Slate.com's collection of cartoons on the 11 Sept. 2001 terrorist attack. Which representations are racist? Why? Which ones are not? Why not?
