    Perhaps no one noticed. Perhaps no one cared. But hours after a liberal news forum brought attention to a series of days old controversial photos on the Republican National Committee's Facebook page, the photos were finally taken down.

    Among them was a picture of President Barack Obama eating fried chicken, subtitled with a call to prohibit interracial marriage. The photo's caption read: "Miscegenation is a CRIME against American Values. Repeal Loving v. Virginia."

    Miscegenation refers to the "marriage or cohabitation between a man and woman of different races." Loving v. Virginia was a landmark Supreme Court case that, in 1967, struck down all of the US's laws against interracial marriage.

    This is the photo as it appeared on the GOP's Facebook profile on Monday:

    Now perhaps it was a troll who posted it, perhaps not. But it was left there for 5 days.

    If the RNC can't manage a little thing like their own social networking site, how can they be trusted to manage a country?

    What? Only black folk eat fried chicken? Only white folk can be against interracial couplings? If you see it as racist then perhaps you're the one with the problem.

    "miscegenation is a crime" posted under obama eating fried chicken, no that is not racist. no no. of course not.

    "kill this ******" under the same pic, would that be racist? i guess not.
