Hey man,

Just wondering what, if anything, you have to say on the New Yorker cover.

Considering the source being the New Yorker, I saw it as it was intended (or as I believed it to be intended), a illustrative satire on the right's smearing of Obama.

I haven't read the New Yorker in a while, but I'd always seen it as a left leaning pub whose audience was left leaning folks.

That said, whenever satire and race collide, bad things happen.

I remember when Spike Lee released Bambozled, he started the film with a dictionary definition of satire.

I wasn't offended by it. My pops was furious over it. Talkin' about boycotting a magazine he's never read furious. And I totally understand why.

Hope that answers your q.

Thanks for the comment.
