Obama Sock Monkey - Racism?

"We don’t get enough of him at his public speaking events. Now you can have your very own TheSockObama™ 24/7!"

Man this is bad. Can we say racist? We all know the long history of the racist connotations of calling black people "monkeys". The Curious George T-shirt controversy didn't help and this doesn't either. We must get beyond things like this.

I wonder if we can get this site shut down? Let's try!....Email them HERE

I kind of want one is that wrong? As a supporter I wouldn't mind cuddling up with Obama.

I contacted them and ask them to explain to me, a 38 year old Black male who was calleda monkey by White people as a child why I should not be offended by their product.

Bush looks a lot more like a monkey anyway. Has anyone made a sock monkey version of him? I guess that would offend monkeys...

I agree..."get a life". As avid fan of sock monkey culture this is no was is racist just because someone made a Obama monkey. What about the Mr. T monkey? I think I know who the racist is here and maybe we should try to shut you down for perpetuating such poison thought!!!
