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.
