The Obama portraits

Even the usual sycophants had trouble saying anything positive about the "official" Mr and Mrs Obama portraits. The one of Mr Obama looks frankly childish and the one of Mrs Obama is a poor likeness. 

The paintings were done by black artists so that is the first straw in the wind.  Might not there have been some white artists who could have done a better job?  No way!  In the great spirit of Leftist racial bigotry, the artists had to be black

But that's not the end of the racism.  Why was Mrs Obama shown with much lighter skin than normal?  Above is a copy of the image shown at the time of the unveiling, where her skin is a mottled white. The NYT appears to have got photoshop to work, however and show her arms as uniformly light grey.  But neither is anywhere near true to life.

So even the Obamas would rather be white? Is that how they would like to be seen?  I believe it but it's pretty sad. Are we allowed to say "cultural appropriation"?

The Obamas are not attractive people.

I wouldn't pay good money, much less good "monkey" to see the paintings. ;) Those little critters are to hard to carry in my pocket just to see trash on display!

I thought the one of Barack was not bad.
The one of Michelle was just strange and could have been almost any 'black' woman.
