Another Stereotype of the Month entry:
The implication of this cartoon is that Natives protest white people dressing up as Indians, especially in stereotypical garb, because their feelings are easily hurt. In other words, not because the grievance is legitimate.
Coming from the type of person who complains whenever a movie portrays Jesus as anything but saintly, this is funny. In fact, this type of person is presently protesting whenever a store owner says "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas." Apparently WASPs are the biggest politically-correct crybabies of all.
