    Latinos (minus pure Catille snobs in Spain) are not Europeans. There's art and then there's hate from Puerto Rico's Wyd on twitter, Rubio's sickening patriotism.

    Latinos are the only group currently allowed in the USA to undercut the insulting minimum wage because they're fleeing from poverty.

    One day they'll realize they're the new American slaves.

    This is a totally disrespectful way to present our FIRST LADY! I don't think they would take too kindly of an American publication showing their high ranking officials wife climbing on a stripper pole.
    Shame on them and this IS NOT ART! A bust or painting of Mr. and Mrs. Obama would have been more appropriate, showing their elegance.
    This is a disgraceful magazine. They should go broke and never be able to sell another subscription.

    I think that this is some back room people trying to start some thing before we vote.
    Don't fall for it!
    Vote your heart. I am a Black women.

    The depiction of The First Lady in a slave image implies that the only history of African-Americans is slavery. Ms. Obama is a highly educated lady and more accomplished that many of her counterparts among white women. Would it be appropriate to portray former First Ladies as cave women, as that is part of their historial reality? Racism and bigotry are expressed in many forms.
