Disgusted by cartoon with derogatory stereotypes

I was horrified and disgusted with Friday’s editorial cartoon.

Comparing immigrants and refugees to snakes using derogatory visual stereotypes is vile, racist behavior. It is especially inappropriate given the welcoming efforts underway as the Valley’s new refugee families arrive, which has been profiled positively in the Gazette.

As a long-time reader and subscriber, I believe you owe your readers a public, printed apology and retraction.
