Quote for Day: "Political Cartoons Are Free Speech, But They Are Not Always Innocent and Inherently Democratic"

For Truthout, Christen A. Smith maintains that while we must grieve the Charlie Hebdo dead, we must beware of misconstruing racism as a democratic ideal:

Simply put: Political cartoons are free speech, but they are not always innocent and inherently democratic. 

And I think Smith is absolutely correct about this.
