The @RTDNEWS; a paper that published an ad by an anti-LGBTQ hate group, supported a gov candidate that said immigrants wanted to "rape, kill, control" & now published a cartoon callously making fun of children who have been separated from their parents.

Expect better Richmond.
In a time of national crisis, where the fabric of what it means to be American is being stressed-perhaps beyond repair-this is where the #RTD is. Not funny, nor clever, & not about balance (as the RTD claims). This is about continuing to "other" immigrant children. Pitiful.
The #RTD response to their tasteless cartoon: "Chatter" implies we are just mere bystanders to some random issue that lacks all moral and ethnical consequence, not citizens of conscious watching one of the darkest periods in recent memory unfold in real-time.
By making light of a situation that sees children (some as young as 8 x months old) be forcefully separated from their parents the #RTD has attempted to normalize what should never have been normal in the first place. #Shame.
Our response to the @RTDNEWS's editorial cartoon.
