    The fried chicken and chains are references to a racial stereotype and slavery, respectively.

    The picture is meant to imply that the President is nothing more than a racist's most fevered, hateful cartoon stereotype. It's dismissive of our nation's shameful history of slavery, and it reinforces a particularly nasty, racist characterization of black people in general.

    The problem with going with your gut as opposed to your head is that the former is so often full of shit. - Randy Chestnut
