But I guess the left will have to say that Barak is a racist now, right?

I know the feminists are not going to like Barak's portrait.
Let's hear from Captain Unity's painter, himself...



Quote:
In a soaring studio on the outskirts of Beijing, where Kehinde Wiley came in 2006 to set up the first of his several global production outposts, the 35-year-old painter is showing off his women. Most of them are still incomplete—their faces need touching up, their gowns (custom-designed for his models by Givenchy) lack texture. But one already stands out: a tall, elegant black woman in a long blue dress—the canvas is enormous, eight feet by ten feet—calmly staring down the viewer. In one hand, she holds a knife. In the other, a cleanly severed brunette female head. “It’s sort of a play on the ‘kill whitey’ thing,” Wiley says.

Obama said this about him choosing the artist, "What I was always struck by whenever I saw [Wiley's] portraits was the degree to which they challenged our conventional views of power and privilege," Obama said at the gallery on Monday.


I don't see anything controversial in the paintings themselves. But I think he knew what he was doing by selecting Wiley. I bet he's having a good laugh as the racist right wing freaks out about it.

Good one Mr. President.

LOL, the critics are the racists.

If the artist Trump chooses to paint his portrait has paintings in his portfolio that are sort of a play on the ‘lynch darkie's’ thing,” you will be OK with it?

You either have a good sense of humor or no intellectual integrity.

I have a great sense of humor. I also understand why people are offended at the painting you just posted. I also understand artists are wierd ****ing people. At least the good ones are. There a million different interpretations for that painting. And Obama's interpretation is propably different from yours and mine.

If tRUmp is able to choose a painter for a portrait from his cell in prison and he chose some Russian painter to make some benign portrait of him sitting behind some bushes. I'd propably bitch and moan and make fun of it too. But like I said I have a good sense of humor. And my hypocrisy knows no bounds. Alas I am only human. So yeah, BO knew what he was doing and it's still funny to me that he did it anyways.

But I don't object to your criticism. It's well founded. I just think BO intended for it.

Btw, I shouldn't have used the word racists, but others used it in this thread first so took a trolling shot. Mea culpa.

I'm going with the interpretation of the person who painted it...

This portrait is gonna be as big a photoshop target as the "photograph" of Obongo shooting trap . . . and for the same reason.

Michelle's portrait wasn't too bad but BHO's was a regrettable waste of canvas.

Actually, it looks like the "artist" employed his Chinese minions to photoshop the background:
