This was not the intent, and for that, the Journal apologizes.
I repeat that the Albuquerque Journal does not condone racism or bigotry in any form.
Obviously, that was not the message received by many readers.
Instead, many saw an extremely objectionable cartoon and thought that was the position of the Journal. In hindsight, instead of generating debate, this cartoon only inflamed emotions.
At this time there were also some pacifists in various countries who produced political cartoons.
