I am writing to express my disappointment about a cartoon that was recently printed in The Lima News on Wednesday.

I’m appalled that something so blatantly racist was allowed to be printed. Furthermore, if something like this was publicly posted, I can only imagine the kinds of “jokes” and cartoons that are printed behind closed doors.

Lima is a city of respect, and this cartoon does not represent us well. I sincerely hope you consider making a formal and public apology for this oversight and that you will think twice before representing hard-working minorities in such a distasteful light.
