Does Image Of Obama With Rope Around His Neck Show Race Remains An Issue?



It appears that some in the U.S. still have a long way to go before we realize the idea of being a post-racial country.

Images like this are disturbing for what is obvious and for the lack of understanding about why such an image is like salt in the wound of racism.

  3. Is it possible to track down the original source of this image to verify its veracity? I'd want to do this before reposting it.

    1. It took about five minutes to post it. I was willing to spare five minutes.

  5. It is racist, ignorant, and way beyond free speech, perhaps nearing illegal.

    1. Nothing is beyond free speech. That's the whole idea...

      Doesn't change the fact that this is an absolutely ignorant and disgusting image.

  6. I agree with this picture. It makes me smile. I hate what
    He stands for. Black or white I hate his ideals. I despise them!!!

  7. Many people like to rehearse the theatrics of history of African Americans but what's most important is knowing just about every ethnic group of people had their share of discrimination and injustice to the human race. Rather than repress what your ancestors hv experience if we're going to have a discussion lets look at the whole spectrum "HISTORY."
