  5. Well, it's racist AND sexist.
    You could say that about it.

    How the FUCK is that racist?

    Just a glint of objectivity from you would be nice.

    You are simply an articulate boots at this point.
  7. Black men holding white women on a chain. Looming above the white woman with a grin.
    Naw. No foul historical resonance to that image.
    Read a book, foof. In fact, read several, and grow the fuck up.

    Only if you look for it too hard.

    If John Edwards was the serious Democratic threat and had it had been John Edwards with the chains, poof, no racism.

    Now, if the cartoon had depicted some black man with zero chance of winning the nomination and who was really zero threat to Hillary . . . then you could argue that they went out of their way to be racist.

    But not in this instance.

    You realize it matches the movie promo, right? Which had a black man with a white woman on a chain?

    Where's Chuck with that damn animated .gif?

    Here's guessing Fenian knew it was a takeoff of the movie poster, but believes it's racist anyway.

    After all, no matter the situation, someone's been mistreated.

    I don't get it.
  12. Yeah, and the movie promo sucked for the same reasons.
    If you're going to play around with traditional American racist archetypes -- and find them cool - at least admit you're doing it.
