The Barak and Michelle Obama New Yorker Magazine Cover

The 21 July 2008 cover of the New Yorker Magazine shows a caricature of Barak and Michele Obama. Barak is dressed in muslim attire with a turban, and sandals, and he is bumping fists with Michelle who is sporting an afro, wearing fatigues, combat boots and has a machine gun (assault rifle) strapped to her back. The two are standing in the oval office with a portait of Osama bin Laden hanging over the fireplace and the American flag burning within it.

The New Yorker says it is satire. It looks like fear of a Black President is really making people leave all the pretences behind.

Why can't we all just get along?
