Petty, anyone can see that.
I wouldn't begin to understAnd the shades of racism may have been implied.
Sentence - 'come here boy' ( to an adult) is very racist in American South but not anywhere else.
Uppity is the reference here I think.

The arm is an issue...I don't understand that. If it weren't for the arm then it would be easier to see this as a political parody, comparing her the infamous Queen, than being blatantly racist. However, perhaps the intention of this piece was to be racist and controversial to get attention.

I'm not sure it's racist but it is very petty.
Must come from small minds.

What's wrong with you people? Anything critical of the Obama's is racist.

Internet is a (news) medium zombieraptur....

Racist? I don't think so! The idea behind it is fishy though, and it's poorly done.

Not racist? Why not just put her face on the original image and call it a day? The bare, muscular ape arm proves it is racist!

So, like many here, I don't find the image racist. However, I would be remiss if I didn't point out that I'm white. Therefore, I am totally not qualified to judge the racism in this picture. Sure, any person may be able to judge BLATANT racism, but there are also shades of subtle racism (and all forms of discrimination) that are offensive to the group being discriminated against without being offensive to the population as a whole. Just because it's not blatant does not mean it doesn't exist.

I don't think that, as a male, I'm qualified to definitively judge the sexism of something apparently slanted against females, nor, as a white man, do I feel qualified to judge this picture, other than to say that it's not blatantly racist. I would hope others would employ as much thought on the subject before demonstrating their ignorance so thoroughly.

The interpretation is racist - but the picture is not.

This isn't racist at all. Stop writing sensationalist stories.

This is not the slightest bit racist. There are entire websites devoted to (hilariously) comparing George W. Bush to a Chimp, however one previous comic relating Obama and a monkey and everyone is crying RACISM!! The only racists left are the idiots calling things like this racist. the slimy, lying media.

Why the f does anyone pay these idiot to write this junk?

It makes you despair, until you realise that if this is all the left has got then Obama is screwed. For the sake of the world, thank god for that.

I had more fun reading the comments on that site than the article itself.

This is a commentary on the Obama vacations.

Anything and everything is racist if you see the world that way.

Not racist from what I can see, but then again, my opinion doesn't matter. Racism is in the eye of the beholder.

How is that even remotely racists? People are just bored and looking for anything to complain about.
