    Seems to me the LA Times said this..so doesn't the media decide what's politically correct?
    Obama....has stealthily played race into the election...so IMO...it's fair game to call him on it.

    You forgot the most important reaction, hilarious.
    Romans 6:18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

    Differences between Obama and God: God's plan to save us is actually written down for people to read. Rush Limbaugh.

    I voted not offensive...

    Here's the link to the story followed by the parody link

    Obama the 'Magic Negro'
    The Illinois senator lends himself to white America's idealized, less-than-real black man.
    By David Ehrenstein, L.A.-based DAVID EHRENSTEIN writes about Hollywood and politics.
    March 19, 2007
    AS EVERY CARBON-BASED life form on this planet surely knows, Barack Obama, the junior Democratic senator from Illinois, is running for president. Since making his announcement, there has been no end of commentary about him in all quarters — musing over his charisma and the prospect he offers of being the first African American to be elected to the White House.

    But it's clear that Obama also is running for an equally important unelected office, in the province of the popular imagination — the "Magic Negro."

    The Magic Negro is a figure of postmodern folk culture, coined

  9. #9 Yeah, the term's offensive. 
    But the LA Times guy had a point.
