    I little too much thinking here; What 'Situation Room Photo' reveals about us



    The photo is visually suggestive of a new American landscape that we're still crossing into. --Saladin Ambar, political scientist WTF?!?

    For much of U.S. history, the black man has often been portrayed as the threat to America's safety -- the angry man, the thug, the one you cross the street to avoid, says Cheryl Contee, co-founder of Jack & Jill Politics, a blog focused on current affairs from a black perspective.

    But in the Situation Room photo, Contee says, the black man is America's protector.

    There's no historical precedent for this image, she says. White Americans now see a black man not just as their president but their "protector in chief," Contee says.

    "That photo is amazing," she says. "It's another step toward rehabilitation of the image of black men in American culture. It's going to forever impact how people see black men in America." - Cheryl Contee

    I see a white man with a tan cause he is 50% white.

    I honestly have questions about this photo though. Not questioning that Bin Laden is dead or anything like that but I was thinking this photo could be staged. Not saying definitely but there is a chance.

    Here is why.

    Who took this picture? Whomever it was, had to have a security clearance level equal to anybody in that room. They had no idea what was going to happen. The mission could have been a success like it was or it could have went bad like Iran. Maybe Bin Laden wasn't there and they kill some children. There is a chance that this could have been covered up if shit went south. This photographer isn't bound by swearing an oath or being confirmed by Congress. It's just a photographer and while I know they get a security check, I doubt they would get one that requires a Top Secret SI along with the Need to Know.

    Now granted it could have been taken by a staffer or a security detachment in the room and I can buy that. However I doubt it was taken by the same guy that photographs out in the rose garden.

    Anyway just some food for thought.

    Iconic photo might not be all it seems, says Clinton
    By: CNN Political Producer Alexander Mooney

    (CNN) – It has become one of the most iconic photographs to emerge in the wake of Osama bin Laden’s killing: a rapt President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, among others, watch a live feed in the White House Situation Room as the Sunday afternoon raid in Pakistan was unfolding.
    The image, captured by White House photographer Pete Souza, shows a particularly dramatic-looking Clinton, with her hand clasped over her mouth and eyes starring intensely forward – an expression that begs the question of just what was unfolding at that instant.

    But speaking to reporters in Rome earlier Thursday, Clinton said she doesn’t know what was happening during that now-forever memorialized moment, and added her reaction in particular might not be all that it seems.
    "I am somewhat sheepishly concerned that it was my preventing one of my early spring allergic coughs," she said of the reason why her hand was over her mouth "So, it may have no great meaning whatsoever."
    Clinton added the Navy SEAL raid was “38 of the most intense minutes,” but as for the particular details behind what will be one of the most famous photographs to emerge from the Obama administration, Clinton was able to offer few clues.
    "I have no idea what any of us were looking at at that particular millisecond,” she said.

    Actually in that photo he looks like more of an on looker than in charge. He doesn't even have a place at the head of the table much less the side of the table.

    Hmm....it's another step towards rehabilitating the image of the black man in America? Funny, I thought that step was conquered when he was elected president of the country. Something completely unimaginable not too long ago.

    My first impression was that they were watching the NCAA March Madness basketball tourney. I'd swear those are Hillary's brackets in front of her.








    As for that article.. .. White Americans now see a black man not just as their president but their "protector in chief," Contee says.

    Stupid racists. Black man this, black man that. Black man yo daddy now whitey. I don't care about the color of his skin. Too many black folk voted for him solely based on his blackness and now idiots like this crap out this dribble about their race ruling over others. He's as white as he is black anyways. And like 47 said; "What a crock of shit. All I see is The President Of The United States in a room with his staff."

    They do themselves and the whole issue of race way more harm than good with this sort of crap. She's an ignorant hack. CNN sucks for publishing that garbage.

    STOP THE PRESSES...



    WRUFF AJAX & RRMB FINALLY AGREE ON A TOPIC!!!


    My thinking of his placement is that he's usually at the head of the table. Usually directly in front of the screen, so he moved to where he could see the feed of the operation. Not only that, but it gives him the ability to get up a move around easier too.

    The guy at the head of the table is a military general and is looking down and typing. I would bet money he is sitting there so that he can operate the live feed from the troops on the ground. This comment is totally stupid and counterproductive. The sooner we see another person as just another person and forget about their skin color unless there is some reason to note it, we will have race issues from both sides.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

    Maybe they're looking at porn on the web and that is why Clinton is covering her mouth.

    the photo reveals nothing about race. Her comments reveal something about her - she's a moron.
