    The cartoon can be viewed as racist because it subtly plays on the notions of Obama's skin color, chocolate and feces.
    Actually given that there is an old saying that black is beautiful, it's racist against white people.

    You are making up connections that do not exist. and then you inject "plays subtly on" because you can't describe how the connections would function in a manner that even you recognize as incoherent. What, they are saying that Obama isn't beautiful?




    This is the dumbest accusation of racism at least since the claim that "pick up truck" was a dog whistle

    Please explain how the cartoon is racist. You can't explain it by saying it's subtle.

    It's lame but no racist.

    Eh. I don't find it racist either, but just because a view is popular doesn't make it right.

    So, for example, if you were to say "good morning", that would be a subtle play on Reagans "morning in America" campaign theme, which in turn would translate to "Republican campaign strategy" which would be a code word for "Southern Strategy" which was a blanket term that meant "appeal to working class whites in the south" which was supposed to work through "calling for law and order" which people accused of being secret dog-whistle code for "imprison black people", and therefore by wishing him a good morning you are, in fact, "subtly" suggesting that he should be imprisoned because of his skin color. You racist.

    I didn't know excrement was a race. It may be offensive to equate Obama policies with ****, but unless you consider **** a race it's not racist at all.

    That is your opinion only. Please don't pontificate.
