Were Many Ports Issue Cartoons Racist?

With editorial cartoons existing at the intersection of pop culture and political culture, something like this article seems to appear every time there's an issue that cartoonists cover by drawing on traditional, stereotypical imagery. This particular article is better argued than most, and although I fail to feel for the issue as only a middle-aged white male can fail to feel for such an issue, it's worth exposing yourself to the argument.
