Who dat? Obama, dat who!
Nice Rodney. You post photos you know will get all the cracker racists going, and they have fun with their chickenshit comments (I invite them to come to Oakland to try some of their wit out), but when I call them on it, I am in “violation of site policies”.
I would like to know exactly what policy I have violated. In fact, I kind of insist on it. And I would appreciate some input from James on the rather obvious trolling you do for racial jokes at the expense of the first family.

Name’s Joseph. Nice coat, eh?
I liked Ceelo’s hit song and I think his costume is pretty wild. I think he’s is a suitable subject for the Caption Contest.
Anjin, while trying to be cute in pointing out your interpretation of others comments as racist, you were the only one that actually referred to Ceelo Green and Obama by the N-word. If you had chosen not to employ a racial epithet in your comment I would’ve left it alone.
On Caption Contests in General
Just about every picture will yield some attack on Obama and the Obama administration, and I suspect this will continue as long as he is in office. No one complained when someone compared Lady Gaga’s egg to the Obama Administration, though undoubtedly Obama supporters didn’t concur with the sentiment. (The current contest also includes what could be interpreted as an attack on Sarah Palin, and that hasn’t offended anyone that I can tell.) The ones that can be interpreted as attacks won’t fare that well in the contest judging as attacks usually preclude the use of humor. I try to offer some latitude in peoples comments as humor sometimes pushes the envelope on what people are comfortable with. I’m sorry if someone’s comments have offended you, I have removed some comments in the past, but only rarely. Beyond that, I will continue to remove comments that I believe extend beyond an acceptable level for the contest, but I doubt that will make everyone happy.
Icarus reincarnated tries again to fly.
Resolving some speculation about its characters’ sexuality, Sesame Street introduces Big Bird’s flamboyant new “nestmate”.
> you were the only one that actually referred to Ceelo Green and Obama by the N-word.
Yea, because it’s a useful tool for exposing just how ugly racist crap is. Sorry, but I came up during the civil rights era and I just have no tolerance for it. It’s not funny, it’s not cute, and it is cowardly.
If someone like “Maggie Mama” wants to talk racist smack, she should be a little more honest about it. She is on the moral plane with the folks who brought us the Obama/watermelon/fried chicken image on “Obama Bucks”. I am not trying to be “cute” about anything. I have seen far too much of this stuff directed at my friends over the years. I am dead serious on the issue.

3) Waiting in the wings, Rahm Emanuel soon joins Cee Lo Green for a duet of his mayoral campaign theme song “…. You”
