So, yesterday’s front page of Metro, one of New York City’s beloved free subway newspapers, had as their lead story an account of an unnamed 25-year-old woman being shoved and spat on by four black women at the subway. Big news, right? Because she was wearing a T-shirt that said “Obama is my slave.” CHAOS ON THE SUBWAYS! RACE RIOTS! WHITE WOMAN DOWN! And yet … the “victim” isn’t interviewed. There are no cops. No lawyers. No nothing—except the word of a desperately ambitious T-shirt designer, whose press-seeking ways has been ably documented before. To New York mag, he wrote: “can you or any one else in ‘new york magazine’ write somthing about me and my art? even somthing [sic] really bad?” Well New York wouldn’t, but apparently others would. We don’t believe a word of it.
