Politico seems to be trying stir up the rabid racists in this country, while pretending they’re doing no such thing. President Obama has hung this painting outside his office, OMG! Naturally, Politico doesn’t come right out and say it, but rather than discuss the ugly history behind the painting — actual history — they make it about the President’s motivations regarding race.
What do you think? Is Politico just doing some reporting about the painting, or are they blowing on a dog whistle?
This is our daily open thread — discuss!
