The Racism of Images
This is the White American Racism that White Americans claim does not exist. This is the White American Racism that Black Americans, deflect as they Go-Along to Get-Along to continue to get their invitations to rub elbows with White folks.
Note the pattern...
1) A stereotypical picture of World Champion Tennis Star Serena Williams as an overweight Black petulant child jumping up and down while spitting out her pacifier when she did not get her way. The only thing they did not include is a caption about Uppity Nigger. Note too, the thin White Chair umpire is talking to a rail-thin and White Naomi Osaka. Osaka is Haitian-Japanese, and is not rail thin. Both depictions are in comparison to Serena's size.
2) A Racist Comparison between Michelle Obama and Melania Trump. Michelle is shown as a masculine Black Female...period. While Melania is shown as a peaches and cream, and petite White Female. These reprehensible pictures are disrespectful and Racist to a Black Female Tennis champion and the Black former First Lady of the United States, who achieved distinction and greatness-and still do-in their endeavors.
If you do not see the Inherent White American Racism in these two Racist newspaper cartoons, then YOU are part of the reason Racism exists in America to the Nth degree
