This Racist Australian Cartoon About India is Being Condemned Worldwide

Bill Leak's cartoon about India and the Paris climate summit is "unequivocally racist"




An Australian newspaper published a cartoon recently, made by Bill Leaks, depicting dhoti clad Indians not knowing how to use solar panels and thinking that they are something to eat.​

The cartoon is not the first racist one to be published in an acclaimed daily. A few days ago, New York Times also published a cartoon about India and the Paris summit that came under fire for being offensive and racist. It is another reaction to the recent Climate Change Conference in Paris, in which India, along with other developing nations, did not support the 'Green Climate Fund' fully.

The cartoon has so far been received with worldwide condemnation.
