Quite Srsly......this is simply a photo gleaned from the Inter-web news.

A gathering of Obama supporters....rallying for their chosen candidate.

(Ummm....just sose yannow, I will delete any comment that is over the top, or uses vulgar, and truly rascist language......

A few of the words that picture is worth:
During the April 16 debate between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, moderator George Stephanopoulos brought up “a gentleman named William Ayers,” who “was part of the Weather Underground in the 1970s. They bombed the Pentagon, the Capitol, and other buildings. He’s never apologized for that.” Stephanopoulos then asked Obama to explain his relationship with Ayers. Obama’s answer: “The notion that somehow as a consequence of me knowing somebody who engaged in detestable acts 40 years ago, when I was eight years old, somehow reflects on me and my values, doesn’t make much sense, George.” Obama was indeed only eight in early 1970. I was only nine then, the year Ayers’s Weathermen tried to murder me.

(not really a very good photoshop, though-- the black on the sign is too black, and the text is pixilated)

So this is photoshopped then?

It could be an enhancement--to make it legible--but probably it was made because of things like this:

Elfie is a bit less than a quarter of college from a digital animation degree, and he applies it when we watch movies or to pics on line; I guess I've gotten pretty good at "seeing" that stuff. (Just last night we were watching Iron Man and got impressed because the CGI exterior of Tony Stark's house was so well done-- they got the weathering on the paint to look just about perfect.)

I don't think it's racist, especially when they *did* endorse him, and he *did* support them enough to put their endorsement on his official site-- until folks started paying attention.

Foxfire - doesn't that scrutinizing kinda ruin the movies for you? After I went to Universal Studios the first time, I started noticing all sorts of things...then I noticed I was paying more attention to the backgrounds, etc., than the actual story line.

DW-
Nah, I find that it makes it easier to focus on the film, since most of the modern ones are so slow. I already paid a lot of attention to the symbolism involved, thanks to a great English teacher.

It's like knowing how a magician does the trick-- the fun starts to come from seeing if he can still trick you.
