    So, it's okay to have it but just be sure to hide it before the "negroes" come for dinner?


    Royals scramble to hide ‘Negro’ art plaque ahead of Obama visit

    The British royal family scrambled to hide the word “negro” on a painting so it wouldn’t offend the Obamas when they visited for dinner, according to reports Tuesday.
    An aide to the royals removed a plaque for the 355-year-old oil titled “The Negro Page” by Dutch Artist Aelbert Cuyp — which features a black servant boy leading horses by rope — and put a plant in its place on Friday night, the UK Sun reported.
    The Obamas didn’t seem to notice the leafy coverup as they chatted at Kensington Palace with Princes William and Harry and Duchess Kate.

    It seems much more bizarre to have a painting of a little black boy in the first place.

    That's a nice painting... the dog goes one way and the bull goes the other way plus you got some horses and the reggie's saying "What do you want from me?". Good stuff.

    The Negro Page sounds like a website started by one of the less socially liberal members of this board.

    Scramble to hide it then show the offensive painting on the internets and report about it on every single news outlet...shows real tact on the part of the royal family...why even bother?

    I hope the Royal family supports repatriating all negroes to Africa. They can run wild and free again. A wonderful goal.

    That's the weird part. I'm sure it was just a low level aid who went to the press.

    Honest question: what do you call blacks in England? African-English, African-United kingdom, African-British? Or are the blacks over there not as uppity and could care less what people say and not get race baited by the media.

    Here in Canada we just say Black(s), nobody says African-Canadian because that's just stupid.
