The White Obama and the Black McCain

Grey NYC’s Creative director Tor Myhren came up with this brilliant poster to bring into the forefront what a lot of people have been thinking of, but couldn’t bring themselves to say in polite company: the issue of race in the 2008 US Presidential election.

 

Regardless of what you think of the candidates, I’m sure you can marvel at the photoshoppery of turning Obama and McCain into persons of another race.

One thought on “The White Obama and the Black McCain

  1. That is a great job on the poster..!!
    Really brings home what this election should be about.
    I wish I would have had a copy of this a week ago, a great editorial could have been based on it.

    But, by tomorrow, this will all be over.

    (Haa, Haa. Little joke there..!!)
    Great post..!!
