The Declinging signficance of race and waffles?
Don't tell me for one minute that race still doesn't matter. Check out the response by the creator of such a racist product. They have no clue nor do they care to address their ignorance of not just what is printed in relation to Obama, but the larger issue of how what they call "satire" is part of a minstrel legacy of racialized stereotypes to dehumanize African Americans.
I'm going to go to Paul Mooney on this one. Remember when the "California Raisins" were popular back in the 1980s? Well lets get some marshmallows and put John and Cindy McCain on them. Oh, and don't forget about Palin too. I bet that the creators of the "Obama Waffles" would not find that so damn funny.
