An issue in black and white

Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist for the Lexington Herald-Leader in Kentucky. His work also appears in USA Today.

Cartoonists copped an attitude and played our race cards after the high-profile arrest that led to the Great Barack Brew-Ha-Ha Summit. Mike Keefe brooded over countless past injustices, while Steve Kelley countered with a counterintuitive lunch-counter encounter. Nate Beeler focused on how the president's flat-footed footnote fell flat, unfavorably comparing the prez to his loose-lipped (if somewhat more seasoned) lieutenant.
