Okay, YOU be the judge
Because I evidently can't let anything go, and this whole thing from last night is STILL upsetting me, here is the picture my sister (not Texas; another sister) (Alabama it was Alabama OF COURSE it was Alabama) posted to Facebook:
HOW is that not racist, exactly? HOW?
I could not help myself. That offensive pic showed up in MY FEED. I commented:
"What the hell does that even mean? That the Obamas aren't "classy" because they're black? Jesus Christ."
When someone else commented that the picture wasn't racist, but was instead meant to be a commentary on Michelle Obama's table manners (HUH?), I said,
"If you post a pic of a bunch of rich white people in evening attire, calling them "classy", as a dig at the non-white people currently in the White House? Yeah, I'd call that racist. If you wanted to make a comment about their political leanings, you would have posted a policy paper or something."
Facebook: Bringing those holiday dinnertable arguments with your racist relatives into the Modern Age. *sigh*
And if there is anybody who can explain to me how that picture is NOT racist, I'd be more than happy to hear it.
