Twitter's Sexist and Racist Reaction to the Obama Selfie
In response to Lynsey's article, I thought this article on The Salon by Elias Isquith was interesting because it analyzed the Twitter reaction to Michelle Obama and the presidential selfie. The article draws upon the different reactions from liberals and conservatives. While some tweeters, focused on Michelle Obama's status as a #angryblacklady, others focused on her status as a domestic woman scolding her husband: "Uh-oh – President @BarackObama might be sleeping on the couch tonight."
