The guys in this week's Barbershop discuss a recent cartoon published by The New York Post, which many say depicts Obama as a chimpanzee shot dead by police (the paper has since offered an apology). Also, Illinois Sen. Roland Burris is back in the hot seat and baseball star Alexander "A-Rod" Rodriguez explains what he describes as a "stupid" decision to experiment with steroids.

Hear views from blogger Jimi Izrael, artist Bomani Armah, civil rights attorney Arsalan Iftikhar and syndicated columnist Ruben Navarrette.
