get a load of this....



saw this on the msn homepage. i read about it and the author of the article deemed it racist. in a way it is...but this is the type crap where you can actually laugh it off. now if it was a klan member wih a noose standing next to a black man then yes, i'd be SUPER pissed off....but these types of things are innocent.

i wanna know what yall think though..is it racist or innocent?

oh yeah..i will now make this picture my new avi

p.s. i'm black btw. just making a statement..that's all.

I love people who make a big fuss out of nothing. They get offended sooooo easily. And usually,they're getting offended on other peoples behalfs. It's ok,you just make them something to laugh at,like LordInfomous has.

p.s. I'm white (since we're declaring
)

Whats supposedly racist about that cover? I don't get it. Maybe thats just me.

Racism will end the day people stop shouting about everything being race related.

Maybe I'm just unobservant, but what exactly is racist? The cover? An article inside?

Also, do you have a link to the article you are talking about?

It's just a typical brainless stereotyping fotoshoot..

Big black guy... give him a basketball coz black guys just lurrrve basketball.

Flouncy white blonde.. Make her look like an Airhead..

Hmm... I couldn't tell what the racist part is. And I don't want to say now what I think it could be because then I might be racist myself.

you know what i realized is a lot of people are racist without even realizing it...

in my opinion, the person who saw racism in this or consider it racist is racist themselves for thinking this is racist? does that make sense?

like what i mean is if race and color are still an issue you're racist..i don't care if you sympathize for the black man or if you run around with the klan..if race and color are still an issue to you, you yourself are racist, straight up

lol, does this post make me racist? cause i'm calling people out for being racist for thinking things are racist but wouldn't i be racist for calling people out for being racist cause they're trying to make race an issue

Maybe I'm color blind but I don't see anything racy.

Who, what, where?

I don't see how it's racist though. He's a basketball player! How is holding a basketball racist? As for the blond, she could be a real life airhead.


Just looks like two people on a cover to me. I guess I'm just a simple man.

Huh?


It's so ridiculous isn't it..

You could say it's sexist because she hasn't got a basketball too..
"WHAT.. Are they trying to say women cant play basketball.???"

I like the article on the left..
'Dress for every body type for sizes 0 -16!!'


What about the other 95% of Americans??

Replace the male with a caucasian and the female with a negress for fun. How does that stereotype fit? Does the cover still work as effectively?

Yeah.. Only thing is.. You'd have to use an Eminem lookalike and a big butt momma to get the full effect..

I hate that garbage anyhoo..
Magazines for the mentally irregular.. "Yo Adrian!!!"

I personally don't find anything racist about the magazine cover. It doesn't bother me in the least.

Lebron James and a White Super Model that is married to a Black artist.
WHERE IS THE ALLEGED RACISM?

I guess some people are just so trigger happy when it comes to playing the race game and pointing that finger that they can no longer think straight.

Reminds me of the Boy Who Cried Wolf.

There should be a penalty race related false alarms!

"black guys just lurrrve basketball" (fried chicken).. I was paraphrasing..

Ahhh.. So it's a 'little people' thing then..??

You gotta watch the scene from 'Me myself and Irene.. To get it..

(Jim Carey unwittingly upsets his wedding chauffer with a 'Non' racist remark.)

I don't see it as racist at all. Lebron is holdinga baksetball because he is a basketball player, Giseles wearing model clothes and has flowing hair because she is a model. The fact that LeBron is black and Gisele is white does not make it racist. It's who they are.
I don't understand why a black man and a white woman on the cover of a magazine would be racist.

The only thing I see weird is that there is a male basketball player on the cover of a woman's magazine. Maybe it's just eye candy for the reader.

BTW since some of us are stating our color I'm sort of pink and tan.

Some obviously retentive puritans have suggested the shot looks like a king kong spinoff. Personally I don't see it.
If I could ever achieve 1% of 1% of Lebrons achievements I would be in fat city.
