I understand it’s been said the goal of the Opinion page is to spur debate and conversation. It certainly did that.

This cartoon on Wednesday was cynical and racist, full stop! It may be comical to some but insulting to me as a Black female. What a way to celebrate Black History Month.

This isn’t about me, but about depicting two white men in your cartoon trying to insult highly qualified Black women and questioning their qualifications to be Supreme Court candidates.

When God passed out brains and knowledge, He did not exclude Black Americans.
