i've got to agree, this looks like a button pusher to me. the image symbolism is powerful.
the poster is reminiscent of white mistral imagery, except here, instead of a white guy "blacking up" you have a black guy "whiting up". then
again, it might just be a joker image and the mistral undertone is accidental.
if the person who made the poster and identified themselves it wouldn't be an issue, for me anyway, even if the whiting up thing was the desired
effect. the powerful dual image subtly embedded in the poster kind of raises a few red flags.
not that the image is bad, it's fairly clever and good poster art. the monkey thing with bush was a dig at fundamentalist christians so using
subliminal digs shouldn't be a big deal when used against the sencibilities of liberals, but not standing up and saying you did it is a strange
attitude on the part of the artist. if you're wearing a t-shirt with this on it you are willing to identify yourself, no issue, but remaining anon
suggests they have some reason to hide.
