Obama Is The New Black

My friend used to subscribe to Time Magazine, but never actually got around to reading most of them, so I'm always picking up old issues whenever I'm at his house.  Anyway, I quickly glanced at last August's issue and saw that the cover said, "Hail to the hip-hop President."  And I was like, "Holy shit.  That's so racist!" . . .

Then I realized it was written under the heading "Haiti," and it was about Wyclef, the famed hip-hop artist, wanting to be President of Haiti, and not about President Obama being called "hip-hop" because he's black.  Oops.  Who's the racist now?
