Obama as a Mythological Character

As far back as last spring, also when this editorial cartoon was printed, an OpEd piece in the LA Times by David Ehrenstein, Obama the 'Magic Negro, refered to how THE ONE's worshipers see Bambi as a magical being, a magic negro, who well solve all of life's problems.

For as with all Magic Negroes, the less real he seems, the more desirable he becomes. If he were real, white America couldn't project all its fantasies of curative black benevolence on him.

You probably shouldn't judge having the hope to try doing something entirely new and risky until you try it yourself.
