Have you seen the latest cover of New Yorker magazine? Barack Obama is dressed as a Muslim, his wife looks like a Muslim radical with a huge afro, there is a portrait of Osama Bin Laden about the mantle, and an American flag is burning in the fireplace. I pass by magazines every day that I see but never read. For me, the picture is the message! No matter what the explanation is inside, everyone who sees the this cover is going to perceive Barack Obama as a Muslim, and his wife as an armed radical or a supporter of Bin Laden bent on terrorizing the West. In my view what the New Yorker has done is grossly slandered the Obamas by setting this image the minds of everyone who receives the shock of this cover, and given political aid to opponents as well as reinforced the current ignorance, bigotry, and outright racism that exists against him. Since at least 95-99% of those who see the cover will never read the explanation the New Yorker insists actually defends Obama, the the message imprinted on the impressions of those who see it will be that Barack Obama is in league with or sympathetic to terrorists. What do you think?
