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

    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.”

    3. No surprise Spanish people are racist they don’t even like the dark skin people in their own race. And that goes for Mexican, Puerto Rican, Colombian, Cubin and Guatemalan. That’s why I don’t care if they get shipped out of here. They to have been twisted up with white supremacy.

    4. I heard gossip of the controversy and couldn’t figure out the origins, but had to come to Massa Tom Joyner to get the low down (I’m just kidding–but serious about coming to BAW–thank you Mr. Joyner&Company). Say it isn’t so, not my USA First Lady girlfriend Mrs. Obama, Leah and Sacha’s momma–daughter of the robinsons&sister of the brother–does make you think, and cheer, give me an A –all the abolitionists in the house say ”aw”. cluck cluck chicken, duck duck victim. lawyer lady with the ability to take care of herself.

    6. I heard about the controversy, and had to come to BAW to get the real story. WRITE ON MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS–something went right–the Black Press is pressing on… even if at a snails pace. Queen Isabella was too young to be managing things–and Portuguese History is no better. READ AND WRITE ON!

    8. What’s so funny about this crap is that many whites don’t accept Spanish people either and if we could somehow come together as “People of Color” we would be the majority but ignorance has no boundaries that spreads like a cancer!

    9. White folks continue to justify their crimes against humanity by labeling all folks of color ,slaves, or decendents of slaves.Actually those folks who were given that label were robbed of their rights to freedom and justice.Here in America that injustice cost the United States 600,000 dead citizens.And our country is still paying a price..Run and tell that…
