Self promoting hack. She should have stopped at the Obama picture.

"This image has nothing to do with acknowledging Obama's enslaved foremothers, and everything to do with reinforcing and extending the historical denial of black women's individuality and agency."

And how is that exactly?

Ah, Chaz. Is there anything you won't do to get a flash of tit up on the SLOG?

Charles,
The portrait is beautiful. It reminds me of the work of French painter, Jean-Leon Gerome. However, the Spanish magazine cover is in poor taste. Madame First Lady Obama, like all first ladies deserve respect at the very least.

That cover reminds me of the infamous New Yorker cover in 08'(?) of Michelle & and then candidate Barack Obama:

No, Mr. Remnick (David Remnick, then editor of the New Yorker) it wasn't funny at all.
