Fucking hell.

Just in case the Americans might have thought the UK was doing better in terms of totally blatant prejudice, here’s the cover of this week’s Private Eye.

 Bigotry on parade Thanks, Mr Jender. (In future posts, I will try to return to speechlessness when only expletives come to mind, but hey sometimes you can’t help yourself.)

  1. “Obama and the Black House?” Why is that racist, hp, and not hilarious, EAR? (or were you, ear, being ironic?) Because it places in the front edge of the foreground his skin color, widely seen as a racial characteristic. It furthermore suggests that his skin color is somehow incompatible with a very important symbol of America. the 9/11 terrorists had reportedly targeted the white House, and in his own way, so has Obama, just because he counts as black.

    What’s not to laugh at? Plenty, but at least for me, it isn’t as though there’s a basic humor than political reflection overrides. It’s just too obviously exploitative, the sort of thing that stops appealing to a lot of us after about 9 years of age.
