i just saw a show on CNN where a white scholar from the university of michigan named josh joe has just defined social constructions as not including political cartoons.

this significance of this novel definition, from a self-proclaimed non-narcissist, is that obama remains in the eyes of all sheep THE FIRST SOCIALLY CONSTRUCTED BLACK PRESIDENT, a stellar argument in light of the insignificance of political cartoons.   hoe insists that he does not work for the obama campaign and that his new definition of a "social construction"  has nothing to do with preserving obama's place in the popular imagination.   CNN reaffirms the story you all heard in school: the majority of people in abraham lincoln's time thought he was white.   obama is still unique and not an egomaniac overhyping his place in black history.

Lincoln's presidential opponents made cartoon drawings depicting him as a Negro and nicknamed him "Abraham Africanus the First."

hoe's greatest contribution to scholarship yet is the fact that nobody ever looked at cartoons in lincoln's time.   cartoons were considered works of the devil.
