Political Correctness rating only 84%. Someone’s not trying hard enough.1January 22nd, 2010Doing it wrong
The shot is composed of E) three males and three females with F) the Native American girl being able to possibly represent Alaskan Inuit and at a stretch Generic Asian. G) The Hispanic Kid is obviously the Catholic H) The White Kid is general Protestant and/or Jew/Amish/Mormon. I) The Black Kid steps into the role of Southern Baptist but can adapt to be Malcolm-X style Muslim as well which leaves J) The Native American girl to mop up all the New Age and tree worshippers.
It’s all very tidy and the White House PR department has obviously put more time into this then they did the Air Force One flyover of NYC.
However, I ask the same question I always ask whenever I see these shots – Where is the Indian? (and by Indian I mean the original Indians from India) because for some reason Indians are always completely over looked whenever these political correct photos are taken.
Now if I was in charge of this shot I would have got two more kids – a boy and a girl so the gender balance isn’t upset – K) The Indian/Pakistani Kid and L) an actual Chinese/Korean kid so the Native American didn’t have to double up. That way you also cover off M)Hinduism N)Buddism O)Taoism and P) whatever religion that The Beatles were into.
The woman in charge of Political Correctness at the White House obviously needs to spend more time concentrating on the job and less time telling people about all the interesting gay friends she has.Tags: Doing it wrong
