The picture that goes along with this post (I know, I have been into images a lot lately) along with others with it , have been generating quite a bit of buzz among certain parts of the bloggosphere. Seeing and reading different people's take on it has been interesting to say the least. Hey, I am not here to preach, just to observe and read tonight. I get the subliminal racist Mandingo buck raping Missy imagery. And the not too subtle sexually charged messages that feed into our stereotypes of the black male.
I get all of that. But what I really want to know is this: In this "post- racial" world where it's supposedly cool to bet on black, and where we are told that generation Xers and those who came after them really don't see race. Who do you think these pictures would piss off more?
There is no wrong answer.
A. The crowd at a black sorority convention? (Where my pink & greens at?)
B. The aging congregation of a large, black, Southern Baptist church?
C. The aging congregation of a large, white, Southern church?
D. The crowd at a republican town- hall meeting? (Any town)
E. None of the above.
Please hurry with your comments. I am trying to get off of this page as soon as possible. Mrs. field doesn't know how to act when she sees "cut" brothers. I can't chance her walking by and seeing this pic.
Hat tip to Emmjay for e-mailing me the link to the Gisele Bundchen photos.
