CBS and AP Photoshop Racist Picture of Obama
CreativeMinority Report ^ | November 04, 2010

Posted on 11/04/2010 8:30:54 AM PDT by Iron Munro

How can CBS News explain this photoshopped picture? What possible explanation could they have?

Accompanying their election coverage on their website, CBS published this photoshopped picture of a half black/half white President Obama with Republicans and Democrats on either side of him as if to say he is split between the two.

Needless to say Obama's white side is on the side of the GOP's John Boehner and Eric Cantor. His black half is on the side of Harry Reid and Charles Schumer. Are they saying that Obama will have to act white with Republicans?

How could anyone think that changing the President's skin tone like this would be a good idea? This has got to be either one of the most racially insensitive and just plain ol' stupid photoshops a major news organization has done since Time Magazine blackened OJ Simpson's face. The idiocy of this is only heightened by the fact that Obama's heritage is mixed.

Who knows who did the actual photoshopping but the pic can be found at CBS News website.

Maybe they are trying to show the duality of Obama.

See the picture at one of these links:

Liberals and leftists eat, drink and sleep racism. It is at the core of their being.

Yep, one of my lib friends this morning posted a picture of Bush that had a caption thanking everyone for blaming the “Black Guy”. I called him on it and mused that it was always my liberal friends who brought up his race, very rarely my conservative friends. He really couldn’t come up with an answer.

What would have made this picture fantastic would be to split the flag in the background with the U.S. flag on the right and a red soviet hammer & sickle flag on the left.

These people just can't get beyond race. Race had nothing to do with the repudiation of Obama’s policies as demonstrated in the mid-term elections. These people remain tone-deaf clueless racebaiters.

This is one reason why nobody watches them anymore.

I liked Loki better when he was wearing the green suit with the question marks on it. Hell, that might be more appropriate for Obama too.

I think John Boehner is a tan-pire who sucked the melanin right out of Obama.

Ap has also revealed a photo when Obama allegedly flirted with the idea of running as a Republican if he could not invalidate the voting petition signatures of three of his challengers during his State Senate campaign.

Of course, because in his world, if you don’t think exactly like him you MUST be racist, homophobic, stupid, hater, blah blah blah. His worldview is so narrow, I kind of feel sorry for him. He also brought up a discussion about China’s one child policy, sort of indicating that it might actually be a good thing. He didn’t really want to quite go there, but sheesh.... These people just need enough rope to hang themselves. Let them talk.

Obama cannot be a racist because racism is a fault and faults he has none.

What makes this totally wrong is that the GOP is now becoming more diverse than the Dems. This just further proves the hypocrisy and disconnect the dems have with the American people

I remember seeing a TV show where they interviewed some Chinese children (they spoke English). The interviewer started out asking general questions like how many brothers and sisters each child had. Of course, not one child had a brother or a sister.

Time stood still briefly and I felt like a dry dusty wind blew by - all these children will never have the experience, the security, or the love of a sibling. It will be lost knowledge. How awful.
