White Liberal Blogger Goes Too Far, Depicts Michelle Obama Being Lynched

By Jonathan Adams May 22, 2008

H/T What About Our Daughters Barack Obama already asked his opponents to lay off his wife, and now, it seems he may need to tell his supporters the same thing. A DailyKos contributor, ONECITIZEN, created this horrible image of Michelle Obama being lynched by the Ku Klux Klan in an attempt to illustrate the ways Barack Obama’s opponents were using statements made by his wife against him in his campaign for president. This image is undoubtedly disgusting and racist, and another flagrant example of white liberal bloggers getting it wrong. Racial justice is more than party affiliation; it is more than fighting against conservative policies; it is about acknowledging all systems that would allow an image like this (since removed from the site) to go unchecked.
