« Feel the Hate. German Blog Attacks Barack Obama | Main | America's Newest Export to Germany »

I think the issue is that the editors were attempting satire without a full grasp of the racially charged situation. At the beginning of his candidacy, Obama was in fact termed an "Uncle Tom" by some.

Instead of stating that they were misunderstood, it would have been nice for them to stay that *they* were the ones who misunderstood.

I wrote about this myself. I still don't know exactly how I feel about it though: http://www.thenewmediadiva.com/2008/06/12/onkel-barack/
