Urgent Memo To White Folks! Obama Waffles Is Not Satire, It's Racist! Period!

White folks just a friendly word. If you want to lie to yourself about engaging in racist behavior, so be it, but don't expect the rest of the world to buy into your racism as something to be ignored or downplayed. Mark Whitlock and Bob DeMoss, the creators of Obama Waffles, this so-called satirical take on Barack Obama are racists, period! Anyone that purchased their racist product is supporting their racism and engaging in racist behavior themselves!

Depicting Barack Obama as a Muslim is not satire, it's racist. He's not Muslim for the millionth time and its equally insulting to Muslim Americans because it doesn't really matter if it's a well-established fact that Obama is Christian, the point of white folks depicting him as a Muslim is to tie Obama to white folks fears of our latest boogeyman, the international Muslim terrorist. That's a racist smear at it's very best.

Depicting Obama in stereotypical Mexican dress, including a sombrero is not satire, it's racist! It's an racist insult to citizens of Mexico and Mexican Americans. Further, attacking Michelle Obama and Obama's former pastor on this product has nothing to do at all with politics, but a whole lot to do with demonizing black people to white people. And that is racism at it's best as well. What also makes this such a despicable display of public racism is that this item was sold at a summit for conservative Christian family values. Can't you feel all the Christian love?

And the part that bothers me the most of this kind of racism is that white guys like Whitlock and DeMoss count on people of color taking the high road and never responding to their racism in kind.
And maybe folks of color need to reconsider that position. Maybe it's time we start producing a few satirical items of our own.

How about a special edition of John McCain's Krotchety Krispies Cereal? They would go "Snap Crackle, POW Pop" when you pour milk over them! I for one would love to see the Sarah Palin Liar's Lipstick brand developed. Couldn't you see it? A lovely bright Alaskan cherry red lipstick enhanced with a special beeswax compound to help sooth one's chapped and cracked lips after telling one endless lie after another. How about a special edition of Cindy McCain's Jelly Beans for Candy Addicts? Each jellybean would be marked with the name of the most highly addictive painkiller imaginable and each bag would come marked "stolen from a local charity for kids near you." How about that white folks, sound like satire to you?

LMAO...... I think you need to find someone to make those Jelly Beans. I would buy a shitload and sell them outside the next McInsane rally.

KROTCHETY KRISPIES?!!?!? ABSOLUTELY HILARIOUS

I can't even believe this is a real product that is being sold. Please tell me I am not seeing this. SMH

Typical that this type of product marketing would occur at an evangelical voters' rally. Christians should stay out of politics if the only factor they are going to consider during this election is a candidate who appears to be more "christian".

Christianity has been the source of strife in the world for eons. White Christians in particular, have used their faith as a weapon to justify bigotry, slavery, segregation, genocide, and their own racism.

I did notice that many Christians were offended by the racist product as well, which is reassuring.

However, how did the organizers of this conference NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS before approving the vendors' ability to sell this product?

What VALUES could this vendor have possibly been hocking when it decided and was approved to be a part of this forum?
