“Barack X” Obama Appropriates Malcolm X’s Iconic Imagery


Recommended Posts

The image of Barack Obama (by himself) was sent to me a few moments ago. 

 

I do not believe that Obama struck this pose accidentally; I'm curious why he did it.  Surely Obama does not fancy himself as modern day El Haji Malik Shabazz X, or does he?  

 

Maybe is was just a coincidence...

I think they are both freemasons.  This would mean the imagery doesn't belong to either - it is sign - a signal to their rise in the group.

Good answer!

 

But appropriation is not limited to anyone.  Who was first? Whose image was is most known?

,

I don't know if any of these men are Free Masons, or if that is what it signals, though it would be interesting if that is that case.

 

I guess, as more people strike this pose it will become a cliché; like the woman, in a red dress, with her arms folded across her chest; or a black teen in the B-Boy stance 🙂
