    The initial analogy at the heart of the cartoon is from Obama's own remarks at his press statement on the NSA controversy.

    Obama himself said this:

    The question is how do we make the American people more comfortable? If I tell Michelle that I did the dishes -- now, granted, in the White House, I don't do the dishes that much -- and she's a little skeptical, well, I'd like her to trust me, but maybe I need to bring her back and show her the dishes and not just have her take my word for it.
    The cartoonist just used satire to turn it back on Obama and reveal the truth.

    Your shrill accusations of "racism" in this instance come off as desperate and pitiful given that it was the President's own scenario that provided the set-up for the satire.

    You owe the cartoonist an apology.

    Unless, of course, you believe that any satirical criticism of President Obama is on its face racist.
