1. Looks Awfully Anglo Doesn't It?

Where are the representatives of the real stakeholders - the immigrants? Surly they could have gotten some folks from organizations that support immigrants. Or are they there and I'm just not recognizing them?

5. This has got to be from the Onion. Right?

 

There is no way the White House would release a tone deaf photo like this with that caption.

The only thing missing is Mitt Romney sitting in the Presidents chair.

7. No, it's not from the "Onion."

"There is no way the White House would release a tone deaf photo like this with that caption. "

It's a Cabinet meeting. We're you expecting non-Cabinet members to be present?

"The only thing missing is Mitt Romney sitting in the Presidents chair."

You mean a white man instead of black man?

People find the most ridiculous things to add to the outrage machine.
