White People Intervention: Obama And That Sanford And Son Picture

Monday, May 17, 2010

It's time for another White People Intervention - 'cause these people from the Smithtown Messenger really need it. But don't take my word for it:

Hazel N. Dukes, president of the state NAACP conference, said in a statement Wednesday that the county should immediately pull advertising from any publication that ran the photo [...]

"It is simply shocking and outrageous that such a blatantly racist ad would run in any paper, much less an official paper of Suffolk County," Dukes said. "New Yorkers of all races and ethnicity are disgusted by it and reject it." [...]

Tracey Edwards, the NAACP's Long Island regional director, described the portrayal of the Obamas as "despicable and disrespectful. If this was intended as satire, it misses the mark."

I'll even drive.
