Pennsylvania’s Tom Corbett Photoshops Auntie Black Lady into Campaign Pic

Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett is seeking re-election and he’s campaigning hard for it. Word on the streets is that he hasn’t done well with getting people of color and other minorities to vote for him so he came up with a grander idea.

Good ol’ Uncle Tom photoshopped an older Black woman into his campaign picture. You know, instead of actually going out and meeting one. Because WHY NOT??? That’s exactly the same thing! *sarcasm font*

The picture is actually hilarious because it’s Tom surrounded by these smiling people and to be honest, ALL of them look faked and Photoshopped in. However (we will call her) Aunt Black Lady is the one the internet (and BuzzFeed) has verified because her pic was found on a stock photography website.

And is that Clarence Thomas behind Tom as Uncle Black Man? Because: appropriate.

The Corbett Campaign team cut her out of a photo of an elderly couple, they flipped her and TADA! INSTA-BLACK SUPPORTER!

We should play a game of “Count the problems here” and see who wins.

HAHAHAHAHANOOOO. If that doesn’t demonstrate the problem with many of these candidates, I don’t know what does. The fact that they’re so out of touch with real people that they have to photoshop pictures of them WITH real people shows that don’t have our real best interests in mind. Ol’ perpetrating ass public servant. Sir, good day.

This is why Republicans can’t have nice things, like minority votes. Governor Tom clearly must not know any Black people, let alone hire any to work in his office. If he did, maybe his team won’t have to troll iStock photo to find one.

Are Black women endangered species? Could he just not find one to meet and talk to in the entire state of Pennsylvania? Or were we all tied up in The Annual Black Woman Conference so he couldn’t find one in a bind?

Bless his heart. He could be doing actual work that will help the state of minorities in the United States. Or championing the rights of the people who don’t look like him. Instead, he’s trying to shortcut his way to prosperity. NAWL, SIR! I ain’t got TAHM.

Auntie Black Lady still ain’t gon vote for him, doe. He also needs to fire whoever does his Photoshop work. This is so weak.

While I’m on the subject of wackness from Republican politicians regarding Black women…

Muriel Bowser is running DC Mayor so her opponent (David Catania) sent mail to folks saying if she won, there’d be nothing but SCANDAL.

Muriel Bowser Scandal

HOMEBOY TRIED IT, YO! Maybe she should create mailings talmbout how he’s gonna be “BREAKING BAD.” Because why not send some weak ass cheap comparison ass, ain’t got nothing to do with nothing mailer?

Don’t listen to me, doe. I’m petty so I might fight dirty. She’s way classier than I am.

Ennehweighs, midterm elections are coming up. You better get your vote on. Seriously. Find out who is running in your city/state and put your vote where your mouth is.

    I live in Pennsylvania, I’m a black woman and I haven’t seen Tom Corbett, but that’s okay because he doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of getting my vote! I’m voting for his opponent, Tom Wolf!

    Woo hoo. It’s so nice to get a preview of how dumb the repubs are gonna be this election season. They’re slogan should be, “Republicans, still standing strong on stoopid” that would look awesome on a button or a t-shirt. Or maybe Ben Carson could sell them on QVC.

    Amen to this entire post! Democrats have been above the Republicsn Frey for so many years and not playing dirty like they do! My mark-buster-ass would beat them at their own game something HARRIBLE and show them what dirt really is!

    But I assume that’s why I ain’t in politics Luvvie. The Lord knows my nerves are can deficient on this particular matter.

    See, it’s shenanigans like this that will keep Catania from having nice things, ole arrogant self. BTW, I’m no fan of Bowser either, but this is just beyond the pale. I’m writing my own dang name in the ballot for mayor of DC or writing in Marion Barry because I never got to vote for him proper. But I’ll be at the polls, plus there is a marijuana legalization bill up and I need to have my say on that for reasons.

    Is that ad talking about “Scandal” supposed to be negative?

    Cos, bruh…

    won’t viewers of Scandal just look forward to a sexy, dramatic term?

    It seems as if some Republicans don’t know any minorities, so they use stock photos to manufacture them. Did you see this post on The Banter?

    I’m hoping someone finds whoever this woman is, and see if she even votes!

    The man in the stock photo looks like he could be Uncle Black Man as well.

  11. October 22, 2014 at 4:35 am

    That guy is absolutely ridiculous! As if it’s that hard to take picture with a black person. By the way Luvvie, you’re absolutely right, everybody on this pic look photoshopped. Is that Gov to busy to meet with real people? I wonder.

    This is amazing in an extremely sad way. I hope his team photoshops him signing a baby next.

    Uncle Tom Corbett is the shadiest mofo that every lived in Shadytroplis. In fact he might be the mayor. He cut the budget to Philadelphia school (which is 85% Black) and when he tried to have a campaign stop at a HS with the 15% (don’t act like y’all don’t know who I’m talking about), the 85% got wind of it, showed up, and all of a sudden the stop was cancelled. Besides the fact that he was the attorney general that didn’t pursue a an investigation into Jerry Sandusky when he was raping kids and Penn State and he is currently caught up in a porn email scandal, where a PA Supreme court judge has already been fired. I could go on, but this mofo is SHADY!! And his people are shady. I’m so not surprised by Auntie Black Lady stunt. Black people don’t need to be associated with his level of shade because we’ll end up the scapegoat for the shenanigans. Please vote. Govenor McShady gots ta go!

    Corbett allowed oil companies to drill in prime areas of PA and received enormous campaign contributions. Wolf claims he will charge fees to oil companies but will continue to allow drilling. I want a candidate who will stop drilling in PA totally and protect the environment. Corbett’s campaign photo is no surprise and just demonstrates the typical republican lack of concern, interest and sensitivity regarding black people.
