THE NEW YORKER Too? What the Fuck!!!

Damn it’s been a rough couple days for Barack. First this then this!?!

When is this motherfucking shit going to end?

Yeah I’m mad, but trust I know what I’m talking about here. Don’t buy this magazine if your life depends on it people.

So what that NEW YORKER readers are gonna get it, does that really matter outside of New York? Is the dude turning pages whistling from Manhattan, KS really going to read a 15,000 word “serious” piece on Barack Obama?

Hell no!

Uh…why doesn’t the flag burn?

Eagles cry now?

Why isn’t Osama a caricature?

White or Black.

Don’t be a slave.

For if you cave slave

Just forget it and take your scared ass to lie in the shade

While those of us skull soul made

Parade unafraid…

The thing about it is…is that cat from Idaho and the “fisherman” from Mississippi gonna continue to spit in each others face?

Or become one line of crazy ass unabated mace…

You decide America

White folk this is up to you here. Either step the fuck up or ease back like the cowards MOST of us think you are

It ain’t about the reaction it damn sure is about the race war baiting action

Don’t get it fucking twisted

Make a stand for the betterment of this diseased land

This moment is your life so raise your slaveshipblackunbabyborn strong hand out of the muddy sand…

or put up your g’damn hands and become fakeassteapartychoppeddownacherrytreecannottellalie1492isdead land…

Did you get that? Don’t give me no bullshit about this not being that serious.

Satire my ass.

Are White folk finally pinching themselves and saying..”Ugh! What have we done!?! This negra is about to get elected!!!”

White folk are losing their g’damn minds.

Statement from the New Yorker:

“Our cover ‘The Politics of Fear’ combines a number of fantastical images about the Obamas and shows them for the obvious distortions they are. The burning flag, the nationalist-radical and Islamic outfits, the fist-bump, the portrait on the wall — all of them echo one attack or another. Satire is part of what we do, and it is meant to bring things out into the open, to hold up a mirror to the absurd. And that’s the spirit of this cover. The reader of the same issue will also see that there are two very serious articles on Barack Obama inside — Hendrick Hertzberg’s Comment, ‘The Flip Flop Flap,’ and Ryan Lizza’s 15,000-word reporting piece on the candidate’s political education and rise in Chicago.”

Statement from Barack Obama:

“I have no response to that.”

Barack will you please stand up for yourself!?! Damn!!!

If you would have spoken up a long time ago this shit would not have happened. When are we gonna stop suckin’ assssss and understand that if we don’t Semper Fi speak up for ourselves this bullshit is gonna happen until the trail of tears ends?

First I have to apologize to a dear friend for snapping when I initially saw this. I’m not going to write anything more until the morning because I WILL say some shit that a lot of people will not like.

Real recognizes real.

I got to say this though…Whites will downplay this because it is not THEM.

Like I said in the comments…this is the perfected evolution of the Vogue and GolfWeek covers.

Conde Nast…tsk tsk…

I guess you’ve made your money for this quarter huh?

I now know why you haven’t returned any of my requests for freelance work.

This art was most likely taped to the side of desks all around the office for at least a month and no one said…”Yo…missa boss man…dis gon starr some shit?”

Again…Black anger turns the depressionesque economy green at our own expense.

The “apology” was well thought out in advance huh?

If I hear one more White person say, “Yeah there is racism…buhhh, but”.

There is no but.

You all fuckin’ suck whose lips purse to say that shit!

There is no grey matter on this. You are either racist or you are not.

Mount up people. Don’t get caught up. The lines are obviously being drawn.

Put your seat belts on.

John McLaughlin says it right. Dude actually calls Obama an oreo! LOL I so wish I was on that show.

Barack speak the fuck up and I don’t just mean about the brothas…

There are no buts.

They play the music…it’s time to play the lyrics

20 years before its time and it’s still relevant.

Play the fuckin’ lyrics!

Does anyone but me find it utterly amazing that in our most racist time a Black man might be elected president?

Are you ready for a chaotic Monday?

    I look at this this way: I am against all stereotypes, in all forms. Serves you better to fight for judging individual people by what they individually do.

  2. Junebug says:

    Of course they would….it’s just satire…but:
    satire: a literary tone used to ridicule or make fun of human vice or weakness, often with the intent of correcting, or changing, the subject of the satiric attack.
    This cartoon speaks volume.

    Reminds me of when my 99.9% high school paper editorial staff decided to dedicate the “Black History” issue to black athletes and they could not understand why the few minority staff writers were basically appalled.

  3. jdubb says:

    I will be done with this. Just because something has a long history of doing things does not make it right does it? It seem leaps and bonds are made to make that certain type of logic stick. I use to read the New Yorker but sometimes the things they write are utter nonesense.
    The point I was trying to make and what you have made for me is that it only takes one person to believe this shyt and its a done deal. Did I think something was “rotten in Denmark” when it came to the cartoon? I knew there would be some beef because someone just put a Religious figure in a less than flattering cartoon an expected not to be some beef.
    The world does not revolve around a single issue but we are talking about this issue, just this issue our country has when it comes to depicted people of color. Every instance has been added upon, again and again. Has this image made any of the right and the left for that matter who really believe this image to be true to changed thier ways? Since this is what this Satire was reaching for? No I don’t think so
    1 out 10, according to the last USATODAY poll believe that Obama is a Muslim,

  4. origin says:

    Great comments all of you well except that lil troll that stopped by from stormfront.

    Sista Nicole you are cold blooded. But I don’t blame you, you have to step to those fools and tell them what really up.

    All real black folks have had to do this on the job atleast what 3 times a year!!! LOL!!

    Have to laugh so you don’t cry when dealing with all this ignorance.

  5. Nicole 10/20 says:

    Origin,

    I have calmed down over the last 24 hours. My grandmother always told me that you have to punch a bully in the mouth and I truly believe that is what is needed here…. I vowed years ago that I was not marching and holding hands and singing “We Shall Overcome”.. I decided that I was going to address each instance, as it occurs , head on. I work in Orland Park, Il and trust me it is truly “Archie Bunkerland”. Some of my co-workers still openly support Bush. I am not paranoid, but I am vigilant, but these Negros at this place are truly house nigga’s, so there is rarely support on that front. I will say that the blacks at work have been complaining about the MSM and that is a big improvement because they were just eating up the news and not questioning the message.

    We will be alright though. Trust.

    Nicole,
    I’ve had that moment…….its quite a revelation when you are at the receiving end of a “Miss Ann” moment. You really don’t know how you’ll respond until it actually happens…and then, let me guess…was it almost like an out of body experience? Mine was….I swear, I think the spirit of my grandmother came up in me or something because I had no control over my faculties and afterwards it was like I just…came too.

  7. Mizzo says:

    Miranda are you talking about this moment?

  8. Miranda says:

    LMAO!! Yep! That’s the one!

  9. Temple3 says:

    Since we’re not marching and singing “We Shall Overcome” (and I’m truly with you on that), what could be better than a glorious, victorious depiction of two Africans having seized the apparatus of the empire in a way that Hannibal himself could have only dreamed.

    Toiling for a DECADE and a HALF in the countryside of Italy simply because politicians at home in Carthage were afraid to push the button, Hannibal Barca waited and waited and waited.

    For all of his conquering, Alexander the so-called Great never dared take his young, fair, fairy ass down to Ethiopia where the Candaces were riding atop elephants waiting to kick his ass and anyone else who might dare act a fool.

    For more than 700 years, jet black people from the Sudan and some lesser than jet black occupied the Iberian Peninsula and brought about the end of a Dark Age that Europe seemed to want to remain in.

    Algiers, Tunis and Constantinople were slave trading capitals for Barbary pirates who snatched up hundreds of thousands of Europeans over several centuries. All that blond hair and blue eyes that Minister Malcolm saw in his trip to the Holy Land of the Arab came from somewhere. Bound in the chains of another land, many, many Europeans became what the world would come to know as desperadoes who renounced Christianity, claimed Islam and began new lives.

    My people suffer from a woeful lack of knowledge. So says the Minister of this era. These images are not mere caricatures of an imagined future — they’re subconscious recollections of a lived past. You may be offended, but it’s only a reflection of that which has already transpired of which you’re likely unaware.

    That’s why I couldn’t get too upset. I was way too busy ROTFLMBAO.

  10. Miranda says:

    Damn T3, I was gonna go to bed early….now I wanna read more on this and gotta google…when I’m sleepy tomorrow working for “the man”, it will be your fault.

  11. Temple3 says:

    It’s always love Miranda.

    I just want what’s best for our peace of mind. When I went to the MMM back in the day, the Minister read passages from the Sun Book (holy – derived from helios – ray-ra-sun, something like that) quoting G-o-d’s words to the nation of Is-ra-el…

    The essence of it was that the nation of Israel would be “angered by a foolish people.” Are we not angered by a foolish people? The media apparatus serving white supremacist misinformation is a maddening attack on our humanity. Now, we’ve all heard the saying that the longer one argues with a fool, the more difficult it becomes for an observer to know the difference. We have to break this cycle.

    Happy hunting.

  12. Nicole 10/20 says:

    Miranda,

    No, mine is never an out of body experience… I am extremely aware and used to these comments. When I first started working at this establishment every now and then a patient would say something like “You are a nice girl, but I really don’t like Muhammed Ali” and I would have to defend his refusal to fight in Vietnam, they would always bring up random stuff like that. Also, whenever I watch reality tv, there is always some blonde chick crying about something and that really irritates me.

    Maybe I am cold-blooded, I don’t know. I do have warm hands though.

  13. Nicole 10/20 says:

    Temple,

    It took me a long time to learn the lesson of arguing with a fool, but thankfully as I mature I have come to realize the wisdom in that saying..

  14. TC says:

    Hey, for what it’s worth folks, I’m a white dude and this cover appalls me. I honestly think that perhaps the cartoonist did think this was parody-to those who realize how slanderous all the images of Sen. and Mrs. Obama are. However, to think that this image wouldn’t be taken and manipulated and leveraged by right-wing nutjobs, and to think that the vast wastelands of ignorant white folks out there in Americaland who actually believe Rush Oxycontin and Sean Hack-ity when they promulgate some of these horrendous myths, suggests that the New Yorker is actually stealth wingnuts. Thing is…to me……how could you even THINK to depict such an explosive image on the cover? You KNOW what the media (if by media you mean self-satisfied millionaires circle jerking) will do with this image, and it will have no bearing on rational thought, or decency, or rationalism, or real life lived.

  15. abejafuerte says:

    i found it extremely offensive also and i appreciated this reader comment that appeared on slate.com:

    “It’s the New Yorker that’s stupid, for forgetting that one of the most important elements of satire is context. Put the same drawing on a TV screen with the Fox emblem in the corner and a pair of couch potatoes parked in front of it, put that on your cover, and you’ve got satire.”

    When are you going to fucking evolve into modern day human beings and realize no one will ever get anywhere until they get over their dumb ass black and white shit!!
    Listen to Bob Marley or better yet, go read something worthy like one of Haile Selassie I’s speaches!

  17. Mizzo says:

    What world do you live in? In my work, it’s all about race.
