Ian Reifowitz is more insane than Andrea Peyser

New York Post columnist Andrea Peyser took her readers to a dark place last week when she wrote on the Obama-"selfie" controversy that the President "flirted, giggled, whispered like a recalcitrant child" with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt while attending the Nelson Mandela funeral.

In two separate issues, the Post ran photos of Barack Obama with Thorning-Schmidt accompanied by headlines suggesting he was sexually attracted to her.

Here's how S.U.N.Y history professor Ian Reifowitz interpreted those covers, writing in the Huffington Post:

[T]he Post's front page calls forth one of the most disgusting racist tropes in our country's history: the sexually aggressive black man pursuing a white woman. And it's all the better that in this case she's blond. Over decades, this trope resulted in the lynchings of thousands of black men accused, in some cases, of doing little more than looking a bit too long at a white woman. The brutal murder of Emmett Till falls into this category.

Really?!
