Re: France: Charlie Hebdo Office shootings

This is a lie and proves that the author didn't understand or didn't want to understand. The caricature's point was the logo of the Front National at the bottom left corner… because this is the way the Front National really thinks behind the rewording and sugar coating of Marine Le Pen the past years and it was referring to a monkey caricature of Taubira made by a local politician somewhere in the south that was plain racist. Charlie Hebdo's readers know the context and recognize the punt made.
Just for context, this is the picture the author is referring to.



To me its not important whether or not this was a very clever, ironic take on the National Front. What is important is the way it was perceived by the subject (a black woman politician struggling against racism and chauvinism in France).

Did they ask her permission before printing it??
