Black Guy Asks Nation For Change | The Onion – America’s Finest News Source

God bless the Onion.

They’ve hit comic gold once again by running this article about Obama. It’s a little older (published back in March) but it actually does a pretty good job of bringing out some social commentary on the way media handles matters and can tend to … knead the truth.

The point the Onion seems to be that it’s really not that difficult to spin a set of facts to concoct whatever story you’d like to. Using some editorial license is not unheard of in the media industry, but for the most part Obama’s been on the positive end of things. His erstwhile rival Hillary, on the other hand, has not been so lucky.

Here’s what the Onion story has to say.

According to witnesses, a loud black man approached a crowd of some 4,000 strangers in downtown Chicago Tuesday and made repeated demands for change.

“The time for change is now,” said the black guy, yelling at everyone within earshot for 20 straight minutes, practically begging America for change. “The need for change is stronger and more urgent than ever before. And only you—the people standing here today, and indeed all the people of this great nation—only you can deliver this change.”

It is estimated that, to date, the black man has asked every single person in the United States for change

I don’t know why it’s funny, perhaps because it’s borderline offensive. Or maybe it’s actually offensive. It’s hard to tell sometimes. Either way, I give credit to the Onion for pushing the envelope, and for genuinely making people think sometimes.

  2. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or
    copyright infringement? My website has a lot of unique content I’ve either
    created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my
    authorization. Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being ripped off?
    I’d truly appreciate it.
