I don't see anything offensive about either of the photos. Just makes me very hungry.
Are they really showing a rabid dog?
I don't think any of us are eskimos...and it would be hard to ask their opinions. Perhaps we should seek out Sarah Palin. She should know since she is an expert on Alaska. just sayin.
Seriously, when I saw this it made me think of a restaurant once called Sambo's. The "artwork" used to advertise the restaurant was quite disturbing to me... thankfully the "artwork" and the restaurant name are no longer around. ,

A major offender, Eskimo Joe's in Stillwater, OK.
Their website says they are famous for the "smile seen round the
world," and you can buy a whole host of memorabilia featuring this
image. Don't worry, there's also Mexico Joe's, if you're an equal opportunity stereotyper. The "eskimo" doesn't even have eyes. Talk about de-humanizing.
