Michelle Obama Slave Image: Racist Art?

A Spanish magazine's seminude homage to the first lady hits all the wrong notes.



I'm going to go out on a very sane limb here and argue that Michelle Obama will probably not love this. Since the Hottentot Venuses, African women whose "exotic" features were displayed like animals in zoos in 19th-century Europe, black women's bodies have been fetishized. Their bodies weren't perceived to have emotions or feelings. They were the physical embodiment of objectification. Sure, the Portrait d'une négresse seemed to reach beyond that narrative, but it lay firmly in the era of battling ideologies over a black woman's naked body, like public turf and not private property.
So literally painting one of the most recognizable black women into that canon is an obvious no-no. It's why Michelle Obama's nude seems more insidious than Percheron-Daniels' Photoshops of Queen Elizabeth and Princess Di. Those two women have the security blanket of a history that ostensibly sought to protect their white bodies. Michelle Obama and women who look like her have none of that.
But why should you care? I'd never heard of Magazine de Fuera de Serie before its offensive cover landed in my inbox. I don't have to pass it at the newsstands on my way to the subway or flip through it while under the dryer at the beauty salon. It's not on my radar, but then again, it is.
I have to live in an increasingly shrinking world in the skin I was given. I've been to Europe more than once and experienced "the eyes" that black women whisper about. The stares follow you from plaza to café to discotheque -- curious, unblinking and, most of all, hungry.

Could this be due to the fact that most races are not attuned to our race's history other than a surface level?

Peace!

i think it's because deep down most white people enjoy looking at us as slaves....
big bucks and jezabels...they like to imagine themselves having their way with us like their recent ancestors....

it's their nature...their perversions

Tur dat..

They talk all that smack but they bum rush the black section in the adult video stores. When video stores were big,some had an adult section and the black films generally stayed empty.

I know a lot of them is p..off that it's not like it was in slavery time. Who was that, Jefferson? Just think;he was so hooked that he didn't care what his wife thought, he was going to have him a sista.

Peace!
