As a middle aged white guy, I'm going to go out on a limb here and tell you that I honestly feel the "race thing" in this country has gotten completley out of hand. Now we're criticizing magazine covers because evidently
a select few feel that this Vogue cover is stereotypically racist.
Maybe I'm an idiot but I look at it and don't see King Kong. I see Lebron in all his NBA badness saying something like, "That's right Leo, Gisele's with me now and look at her smile..."
If it were white-as-can-be Larry Bird instead of Lebron James on the cover, I'll bet a lot more folks would agree with me.
