I can’t even hate on Trump for this move. What’s he going to do, get a real black person to wear a Trump shirt? That doesn’t make any sense at all. Not when there are perfectly good white model on the internet that you could photoshop dark for free and make it look like you’re a man of the people. Trump didn’t become a billionaire by spending money on people when there’s a perfectly good paintbrush app on the campaign computers.
No, what I’m offended by is the terrible photoshopping. For starters, it’s bleeding everywhere
Coloring in the lines is day 1 kindergarten/we need to make it look like black people like us stuff. It’s the very first thing you learn. When a black person puts on a tshirt, they don’t get their Melanin all over it. It’s legitimately one of the worst photoshops I’ve ever seen. Some dude in a minstrel show with shoe polish on his face looks at that and says, “C’mon. You could at least try to make it a little more accurate. She looks like she fell into Willy Wonka’s chocolate river.” No definition, no shadowing, just a milk chocolate model.
I’ve never once cared about a black person getting photoshopped into a college brochure, or anything like that, but this? Disgusting.
