Black McCain, White Obama Posters
Grey NYC, a NYC advertising firm has launched a poster campaign intended to deliver the message that the electorate should cast their votes based on the candidates' policies and ignore their racial differences.
Apparently they have become a collectors item and New Yorkers are removing them from some of the street signs.
You can understand how the reasoning for the campaign came about and it might have made sense a couple of months ago.
However excluding a few racists that Palin has been attracting, the fact that Obama is black has been about the only thing that the GOP hasn’t accused him of.
The US is so polarized between red and blue, and left and right, that the poster probably would of have had more impact if they placed McCain on the left side, labelled Democratic, and Obama on the right labelled Republican.
