Michelle Obama Shown as Partially Nude Slave on Cover of Spanish Mag

*Man, folks try to get away with anything when they think no one is watching.

So on newsstands in Spain for the August cover of Magazine Fuera de Serie, First Lady Michelle Obama sports an American flag … and nothing else. In fact, her nipple is showing. While she’d probably never pose for a photo like this, one has to ask about the motivation behind such a risqué depiction of someone who should be regarded with respect. She looks like a Playboy slave, waiting for her master to seduce her. It’s weird.

One black British writer explains the gesture is blatant racism that somehow almost got overlooked. This isn’t the first time European media has attempted to push things under the radar with no apology. Remember that time when Dutch magazine, “Jackie,” wrote a story about Rihanna with the headline “Niggabitch?” But this time, Michelle’s article is accompanied with a controversial headline: “Michelle Tataranieta De Esclava, Dueña De América” (Michelle Granddaughter of a Slave, Lady of America). The cover artwork is actually a mashup created by French/English artist Karine Percheron-Daniels and is a play on an enslaved African Guadeloupean painted by French artist Marie-Guilhelmine Benoist in the 1800s. Racism or not, the piece is a part of a series of famous nudes-Princess Diana, Queen Elizabeth II, Abraham Lincoln, and President Barack Obama.

The artist says the piece offers, “an alternative unexpected reality,” that allows you to, “view famous individuals in a different way.” WTF I wonder if the first lady was Nancy Regan what story line they would have chosen?

When I tell people that in Southern Europe, black women are seen as 100% SEXUAL OBJECTS 0% HUMAN BEINGS, people think I am exaggerating or lying!! This is the first lady of the richest and most powerful country on Earth, look at how they treat her. Just imagine how they would treat a random black woman on the street!! They sell and traffic us like fucking commodities, like sex slaves!

It is because of stuff like this that I will NOT shut up! Mediterranean men are nasty, gross and vile! Just watch them come and cry because their nastiness is exposed!
