    Could be 'white' chocolate?

    No such thing as reverse racism. Just racism.

    But ok, here's your chance to shine, why is it that a person whose ego is centered on the color of their skin would find that racist, whereas a person whose ego is centered on their character would not?
    Because someone whose ego is centered on the color of their skin would project that onto others, and assume that others critiques or support of the President was also based on the color of his and their skin, respectively.

    I guess it depends on the cartoonist's intention. Did he mean it as just a joke or is there any deeper meaning. I'm not really familiar with the guy so I can't really say but I do know white chocolate sucks. Just way too sweet, I prefer milk chocolate.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Everything Obama touches turns to shyte and Obama claims it's really chocolate, instead. That's your deeper meaning.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    That was a good response. Thanks for that.

    Here's the flaw with what he said, he appears to think that there is a such thing as self identification that is based on character that is free from bodily identification. That is not the case. Character is based on relative concepts of what is right and what is wrong that are indeed rooted in the bodily concepts of what is tasteful and distasteful. Therefore character is ultimately tied to the body can therefore be related to the color of one's skin.

    Having said that, there is a such thing as absolute character, but that is on the transcendental platform and is another discussion, beyond politics and racism.

    But good response!

    The cartoon. Look. Read. See what it says. Drink a cup of coffee or two. Take it all in and apply some thought. You'll see it for yourself if you do that.

    It would be racist if it portrayed Obama as a different race. It would not be funny if it didn't infer that feces and chocolate were the same color.
