The 50 Most Racist Political Cartoons

40. Quick, Give Them a Casino

Artist: Zachary Kanin, Deron Grabel
Publishing Date: September 13, 2010
Published In: The New Yorker
People/person Targeted: Native Americans

The cartoon takes an outdated stereotype (Indians attacking cowboys with arrows) and gives it a new twist, with a cowboy-attired executive offering the attackers a casino. But while the cowboy figure has been updated to 21st-century norms, the Native Americans still use arrows to attack, and the insinuation is that the savages must be pacified.
