Wait a second, why would it matter what leftist credentials any of these
people had? Even if they were all card-carrying members of the Communist
Party, how would it change whether or not the cartoons themselves are
racist? Are you guys suggesting that leftist credentials prevent one from
being a racist, or at least expressing racist ideas?

I'm sure Maris contributed great ideas and I think it is wrong that he and
his comrades were killed, but that doesn't change the nature of the
cartoons.
