I think she knows you can't see it, which is why she said it didn't work. :-p

I quoted her, cut & pasted the address into my browser but nothing came up but an empty email screen. That's what I mean by I couldn't see it.
It's a picture of a chimpanzee & a picture of Michelle Obama. They are suppose to have the same expression & look alike.

Ahhh.


And I for some reason thought this would put in smileys like AIM does when I typed. Oops...

Still, I'm sticking my tongue out and teasing you. But only because you gave me the best sig line about ever.

ugh. It's probably best that it didn't show up.
Don't even give that kind of filth any more attention than it deserves.

I just saw a bymper sticker that said: "Defeat Osama, Obama, and Chelsea's mama." At first I went , but then all I could do was laugh at the absurdity of it.

I just emailed my Mom back & told her not to send this kind of stuff to me anymore. This isn't the 1st Obama smashing email she has sent me. I told her it was very unchristian like. She is a bible thumper.

Does she know how racist that is?

I will agree that it is rather tacky, though.


ETA: I have a feeling I'm going to get flamed for saying this, but the double standard just drives me nuts.

I told her last weekend that I got 719 viruses on my computer, so I would not be opening any forwarded emails, but she is still sending this crap to me. She told me that when she sees a pic of Obama she gets an awful feeling. My sister & her husband (who go to the same church & live next door to her) told her they feel the same way. They think he is the next anti-christ. I have tried to educate these people, but it does no good.

There is another thread going right now entitled Michelle Obama that has digressed in a way that sheds light on precisely why the image of Michelle Obama next to an ape has racist undertones, overtones and directly smacks of racism. Maybe you don't personally hold the racist views that would equate dark (or darker relative to european) skinned people as subhuman, primitive, violent, lesser developed and apelike. But there are people who think that way now, and historically there are many people who have thought it before and acted on it to justify slavery, lynching, etc.. etc.. etc..

George Bush being compared to an ape is a commentary on his underdeveloped intelligence and possibly his features, I'm not sure if his features are simian or not. But there is no skin color baggage (present or historical) to accompany those images in stark contrast to Michelle Obama.

I'm not making any of this up or even stretching much to make a fairly obvious point. I'm not sure why it isn't obvious to you either. Just because you may not hold racist views shouldn't mean that you can't spot or realize obvious racism. (ditto for others forms of identity based hatred and abuse against gays, the disabled, women, other minorities, the elderly, etc.. etc.. etc..)
"Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people."
