    It turns out Kehinde Wiley, the artist former President Obama hand-picked to paint his Secret Garden-esque likeness, also has a penchant for painting disturbing images of black women holding severed white peoples’ heads.

    For his part, Obama claimed that "what I was always struck by when I saw [Wiley's] portraits was the degree to which they challenged our ideas of power and privilege."

    Yeah, that must be it. A black woman holding a dead white person's head is...challenging.

    No need to pretend anything to the contrary as much as before.

    Maybe they'll have medical issues but as far as money, they'll be getting payoffs from the people enriched by their corruption for the rest of their lives.

    Surely us whiteys are simply misinterpreting her artistic expression.

    Pretty clear example of the double standard when it comes to race.

    Pointing out they used an artist that painted black people beheading white people means we hate Obama? Yes, the liberal double standard is quite comical. Do you ever have anything of substance to add to the conversation? Seems like 99% of your posts are filled with hyperbole driven deflectionist bullschit that adds nothing.

    I hate their values, I hate their ideology, I hate what they've done to this country, and I hate their hatred of people like me and of my values. That's not quite as glib and superficial as your post, is it?

    When I first saw those portraits, I though that some members of the imaginary vast right-wing conspiracy had influenced the artists to produce those results. The Michelle portrait, for example, has been described as being of high school artist quality.

    But hey,if that is what the Obamas wanted and they are happy with the results, who are we to be critical.

    Five years from now people will have the same feeling they get when they look back at an old picture and see themselves wearing a paisley leisure suit with sideburns.

    At first I thought this was Michelle's official White House portrait.

    I am big supporter of individualism so I am not a fan of power much less privilege. However I see nothing but power and privilege in the above.

    Actually, I believe they brought in the lady who "restored" the Jesus fresco. She's not as good as the whitey hating artist who painted Obama as Homer Simpson disappearing into a hedge, but she's still top notch.

    Let's switch it around and what would the reaction be?
