Art versus Insensitivity

Madonna on a giant cross as part of a concert or Kanye West posed as Jesus on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Those are just artists expressing themselves. But draw a cartoon of Mohammed with a bomb in his turban… now that’s racist, culturally insensitive, and of course cause for global rioting. Am I the only one that notices a slight double standard?

Fact of the matter is… if any of these stars had any real “balls” and wanted to really show-up society, they’d portray Islamic themes.
