Is this Picture Ellen Degeneres Tweeted of Her and Usain Bolt Racist? [Vote]
For our Talk at 2 today, let's discuss this photo Ellen Degeneres posted of herself photoshopped on Usain Bolt's back! Some folks are saying it's racist, take a look, then vote or call me at 644-9393!
Usain Bolt is the fastest man on Earth, so Ellen probably meant she would run her errands on his back because she could get more done. But with the racial climate in the country currently and the history of Black people here, I could understand how some might be offended by it. The caption, "This is how I’m running errands from now on," has some folks calling her a racist. Do you think we are overly sensitive in America now or is it rightfully so? I personally don't believe in my heart that she is, I've never gotten that vibe from her, but I want to know your thoughts!
