So my image jones continues. Ben Dimiro from Media Matters sent me something else that has me a little hot and bothered and wondering about myself.
Am I being a little too paranoid? Is my hatred for some on the right in this country so strong, that I would think that they would stoop as low as to send dog whistles to their minions to hurt little girls? Did the editor over at the conservative, Washington Times, really consider this picture placement before he or she put it in their paper?
"...And no, this was not an example of an unfortunate juxtaposition, where the the Obama girls photo was actually part of another, more innocuous story and because of a layout quirk simply appeared near the murdered-kids story. Instead, the Obama girls photo was specifically selected to accompany the article. Ordinarily I'd say that's just God-awful judgment on the part of the Times editors. But increasingly, I get the feeling that there isn't anybody at the Times actually making editorial decisions. "
Oh, and one more thing. I told you black folks that it's good to have white friends. They hip you to shit that we don't even know is going on. Like this so called portrait of our first black president with some other presidents, for instance. (**See sidebar) It is going around on their e-mail lists. I bet you half the white folks in A-murder-ca has gotten that e-mail. (Present company excluded of course)
Thank you W---- for e-mailing me that pic. I won't expose you because some of your white friends might be reading this and I don't want to put you out there. Just know that us field Negroes appreciate when we have a spy in the big house.
