Pennsylvania’s Tom Corbett Photoshops Auntie Black Lady into Campaign Pic
Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett is seeking re-election and he’s campaigning hard for it. Word on the streets is that he hasn’t done well with getting people of color and other minorities to vote for him so he came up with a grander idea.
Good ol’ Uncle Tom photoshopped an older Black woman into his campaign picture. You know, instead of actually going out and meeting one. Because WHY NOT??? That’s exactly the same thing! *sarcasm font*
The picture is actually hilarious because it’s Tom surrounded by these smiling people and to be honest, ALL of them look faked and Photoshopped in. However (we will call her) Aunt Black Lady is the one the internet (and BuzzFeed) has verified because her pic was found on a stock photography website.
And is that Clarence Thomas behind Tom as Uncle Black Man? Because: appropriate.
The Corbett Campaign team cut her out of a photo of an elderly couple, they flipped her and TADA! INSTA-BLACK SUPPORTER!
We should play a game of “Count the problems here” and see who wins.
HAHAHAHAHANOOOO. If that doesn’t demonstrate the problem with many of these candidates, I don’t know what does. The fact that they’re so out of touch with real people that they have to photoshop pictures of them WITH real people shows that don’t have our real best interests in mind. Ol’ perpetrating ass public servant. Sir, good day.
This is why Republicans can’t have nice things, like minority votes. Governor Tom clearly must not know any Black people, let alone hire any to work in his office. If he did, maybe his team won’t have to troll iStock photo to find one.
Are Black women endangered species? Could he just not find one to meet and talk to in the entire state of Pennsylvania? Or were we all tied up in The Annual Black Woman Conference so he couldn’t find one in a bind?
Bless his heart. He could be doing actual work that will help the state of minorities in the United States. Or championing the rights of the people who don’t look like him. Instead, he’s trying to shortcut his way to prosperity. NAWL, SIR! I ain’t got TAHM.
Auntie Black Lady still ain’t gon vote for him, doe. He also needs to fire whoever does his Photoshop work. This is so weak.
While I’m on the subject of wackness from Republican politicians regarding Black women…
Muriel Bowser is running DC Mayor so her opponent (David Catania) sent mail to folks saying if she won, there’d be nothing but SCANDAL.
HOMEBOY TRIED IT, YO! Maybe she should create mailings talmbout how he’s gonna be “BREAKING BAD.” Because why not send some weak ass cheap comparison ass, ain’t got nothing to do with nothing mailer?
Don’t listen to me, doe. I’m petty so I might fight dirty. She’s way classier than I am.
Ennehweighs, midterm elections are coming up. You better get your vote on. Seriously. Find out who is running in your city/state and put your vote where your mouth is.
