Ding Dong

I would love to sit around all day and find things in which to create controversy over. Problem is, I'm not very good at it. In fact, I suck at finding normal, everyday things in which to drop inflammatory remarks over, and create vivid, complex back story's for. Like this cover, for example, which I find all manner of awesome - and I don't even know who these people are!

Yahoo! News said:

But the image is stirring up controversy, with some commentators decrying the photo as perpetuating racial stereotypes. James strikes what some see as a gorilla-like pose, baring his teeth, with one hand dribbling a ball and the other around Bundchen’s tiny waist.

It’s an image some have likened to “King Kong” and Fay Wray.

Who are these commentators? Is this what they do for a living? Try to stir up controversy? And if so, how do they get that - from this!? I simply don't understand. I don't understand how the same people who chide us, as a nation for not being free of racism are the same ones who continue to bring it up time and time again. Put those people away - these ubiquitous commentators, and that will solve the very problem they're creating.
