    As a toy I love the design, but it looks like it would be an extremely uncomfortable dildo.

    this guy has other toys on his webpage, one being a "blackface" beachball... seems kind of racist to me. maybe someone can educate me on what I'm missing? Or is it as xenophobic as it appears to be?

    Here's a little rant on Obama beach ball – http://arrestedmotion.com/201...

    I don't get it why it's more racist than emoticons, but people are offended over very simple things these days.

    Artists love to do this; create something that on the surface is offensive and make all of us debate if it is or isn't. It's interesting that the beach ball piece itself wouldn't have ruffled a feather, but it's the name that made everyone notice.

    I don't know if it's racist or not; I guess it depends on the artist's motivation. But should that be the case? Should art depend on its artist to explain it or just stand on its own?

    I know if some college student had painted a beach ball like that and called it "Obama Beach Ball" and thrown it around at a frat party, it would universally be labeled racist. But I also think the distinction that we would make between the two circumstances is justifiable.

    Artists tend to create things that shock us, that awake us of our gloominess. it depends of the speech the artis gave of the piece. i think.

    how is that racist? god, it's views like that that help racism breed and spread. Black dildos(or black sex toys in general) are extremely common, it was probably made simply coz it cost them basically nothing.
    I mean.... you're basically saying the toy is racist coz it's black, right? Does that mean every black toy is racist simply coz there's black pigment in the vinyl? that's insane.

    also, if you meant the red lips... based on these toys ^^^^ it seems to be the artists 'thing'. ALso red & black go well together.... maybe artists choose to combined them.

    Maybe... and maybe the artist made a black beach ball using the same face and called it Obama. Maybe that is more reminiscent of blackface than most people nowadays remember. Maybe societal privilege keeps people from recognizing this, and anyone who criticizes the work is called out, thereby perpetuating the silence of those who find the status quo to be chafing. Maybe.

    Or maybe I need to put down the Sociology books.

    Mel the history of blackface is pretty long and well-documented. And none of it was positive. These toys are obviously referring to something that is racist; whether that necessarily makes them racist is another thing.
