Is it truly racist to say a black man looks like a statue of a black man? If it was a statue of a white man and he resembled Joe Biden, would that be racist? I wonder if they made a movie about Obama and they said Will Smith looks a lot like him if that would be racist?

I could care less what his skin color is. He is a socialist & that's bad enough for me.

Buddy, we have lived in a socialistic government long before Obama. If you truly knew what socialism was you'd know that!

I believe you missed the point. The poster was comparing our president to a lawn jockey ornament. These ornaments are in very poor taste, representing the days when there were black slaves on the plantations, taking care of the "master's" horses. The poster was most certainly, IMO, making a racist comment, trying to cloak it in a failed attempt at "joking".

Mr. Obama has only proven the Darkies can lie, cheat and steal just as good as the Whiteys!

If you're all so worried about Socialism, elect a whitey next time. They don't give f**k about anybody but the well to do.

That is exactly what I am looking for.People had these jockeys on their lawns, when I was growing up.
I want one for my backyard, so when my dog lifts his leg, he will have a target. LOL
Anyone know where I can order one and how much it costs?

American history time.. people need to learn to read..
Jocko Graves, a twelve-year-old African-American, sought to fight the Redcoats, but Washington deemed him too young and ordered him to look after the horses, asking Jocko to keep a lantern blazing along the Delaware so the company would know where to return after battle. Many hours later, Washington and his men returned to their horses who were tied up to Graves, he had frozen to death with the lantern still clenched in his fist. Washington was so moved by the young boy's devotion to the revolutionary cause he commissioned a statue of the "Faithful Groomsman"

By the time of the Civil War, these "Jocko" statues could be found on plantations throughout the South: like the North Star that pointed fleeing slaves to their freedom, the Jocko statues pointed to the safe houses of the Underground Railroad. Along the Mississippi River, a green ribbon tied to a statue's arm whether clandestinely or with the owner's knowledge indicated safety; a red ribbon meant danger. Thus these original lawn jockey statues today fetch thousands of dollars as true artifacts of the Underground Railroad that conducted so many African-American slaves to freedom.

so the lawn jockey is a far cry from a racist symbol ..and furthermore don't compare Obama to what was a great patriot in our countries history...because jocko graves Obama IS NOT..
