Glad we solved that whole racism problem in America. That's a relief.

There is no chance that sign is real and it's [expletive] disgusting that it was altered.
Well I wasn't exactly swearing that it was real. Just that it didn't matter--pot and kettle and all that.

The issue that it was photoshopped isn't exactly surprising. There's a lot dumber internet BS than this out there. Just read down Obama's snopes page.

Hey JoD, I believe you. I was asking because I'd love to put together a side-by-side and post that to Facebook for all my inbred Ozark family members to see. My 1 minute GIS didn't turn it up so I was asking. And I see Josephus has posted it. Fantastic.

Luke, what is the context of that shopped picture - is there a blog or website that is posting it?

this is the garbage on facebook thread, right?
Dan Xxxxxx There's no way to know its a photoshop, might be, might not be...the message is still strong though, this type of voter is what helped Obama win. I saw it myself while working in north city on Election Day in '08.

Exactly. So you saw it on facebook - so where did the idiot of facebook get it? GIS'ing for the caption of the altered pic doesn't bring anything up. Maybe idiot Dan did it himself? Hope so.

But I'd post the original right away if I was you.

i too thought it seemed easily identifiable as shopped. i was glad to find the original (and quite quickly/easily). i hope luke responds with the link to the original to whomever posted it...though its probably not worth the trouble either.
Lukethedrifter uh, Dan, the message isn't strong if what you posted isn't actually the message. http://i.huffpost.com/gen/1244860/thumb ... -570.jpg?5

It's great when you're waiting on an email and your phone chirps, and you say to yourself 'that must be Gary with the figures' (I've never said anything like that to myself), and you open it to find that your high school biology classmate, whom you haven't talked to since high school biology has changed his profile?

I guess the six-month opt-out of expletiving non-sense email notifications is up and it's time to re opt-out. Facebook is an inbox virus. Seriously, why do I have to unsubscribe a couple times a year or more?

Facebook is not twitter--some people need to understand this.

I dont need a play by play of your daily routine.

Also, how many car-selfies is one too many?

2. The answer is 2.
