There was a time, decades ago, when one could argue that images of black men with white women were considered shocking, controversial or even taboo. But those days are gone. As a matter of fact, such depictions have been a requirement, within corporate media, for quite some time. I was recently surprised when, upon visiting a local mall, I noticed that the wall-art showed only whites. I was so impressed that I even photographed it:
Other images at that mall give it the impression of being a white-friendly place to be. In fact, it’s a very pleasant mall to visit. I hope the yoofs don’t get wind of it and start tweeting day bruthas in da hood.
But back to that filthy rag called “The Mercury”. Here’s the cover art they featured in their latest issue:
As I stated in my previous post, a picture is worth a thousand words. For all the ink the Mercury spills over corporate privilege, all the griping they do over the status quo and however much they view themselves as opponents of propaganda, they epitomize big government/corporate propaganda. They’re sending out the same messages we find on television commercials, in government literature and in corporate advertizing.
The above image shows what they promote. Now scroll down to my previous post to see the results.
