How is that pic NOT racist?  If you can't even see that, how can you talk of racism?  You are clueless!!


The picture does not put a quota onto black immigrants into the US, FYI.

The picture does not sentence a white Christian cop for 2 years after he killed a black.

It's a racial stereotype of blacks as gansters.

You obviously know nothing of racism in the US.  We have to fight the stereotypes.

It shows three black hip-pop singers. Any suggestion is your creation rooted in your profound and shameless intolerance.

Um...no.  I showed this to several people that agree it is a bit racist considering we are talking about our president here.  Hip Hop singers exploit the whole 'gansta' image to promote records.  But this is not a very positive image always - have you heard their songs?  What seems to get eclipsed is that there are many educated black professionals, like Obama.  They are not all like the hip/hop image and we shouldn't see them all this way.  I think the person who created the animation was degrading Obama by not recognizing him as a professional.

You just don't get it.  I'm not surprised.  The move in america has been to show more than just the stereotypes.  How can blacks succeed and overcome many of the socioeconomic barriers if we only see images ofthem as athletes, performers or street thugs?  By constantly showing only these types, no one knows that there are many blacks that are also educated professionals.  Obama has done much to show a better image to the US and the world.  It's inspiring to many in this country as they no longer feel that they have the same barriers in life.  This angers a lot of racists and since he has been in office, the white supremacists have been on a campaign to reduce Obama's achievements by either calling him a musIim or photo shopping his image onto racial stereotypes.
