A cartoon showing Michelle Obama as butch next to a beautiful Melania Trump has been deemed racist after the artist tweeted the picture on Friday.
From the Daily Mail:
A cartoonist has been accused of racism after he portrayed Michelle Obama as masculine and butch next to a pageant-ready Melania Trump in a controversial drawing.
The cartoon – which has been branded ‘racist and misogynistic’ – shows a muscular Mrs Obama wearing a green dress with a bulge in the groin area.
Stood next to her is a feminine, smiling Melania Trump in a pink dress and holding a Trump sign.
The artist Ben Garrison tweeted the picture on Friday with the caption: ‘#InTrumpsAmerica The #FirstLady will be Great Again! #Trump2016.’
Twitter reacted with fury to the drawing, with dozens of people defending the First Lady.
Femi H tweeted: ‘Honestly this is racist as hell and reverts back to stereotypes that black women are angry and masculine.’
Is this picture racist or is it any worse than any of the other campaign ads? What do you think is the artist wrong here?
