This is completely intentional and not at all incidental.
Just because they wouldn’t have noticed on their own, that doesn’t somehow negate the point and truth of this. Everything about his stance and expression scream brute, animal, savage… Even the contrast of their clothing show him dark, her light—and we all know what dark (black) and light (white) mean in the English language.
Also, whether someone sees it with their physical eyes or not, this message still sends soooo many messages to the subconscious, and none of them good for black youths’ minds and sense of self.
This image also perpetuates the false idea that all black men want caucasian women, and that caucasian women are the “top models,” as in most beautiful… While black men are the “star athletes,” as in the best in terms of physical.
Then you look at her. It’s almost as if she is running from him, and her demeanor is quite different. She is smiling, her hair and body language are meant to say beautiful, sophisticated, etc. The very opposite of the black man next to her.
As someone mentioned, we are likened to beasts and only worthy of praise when it comes down to physical achievement. To add on, we are like circus animals; Exotic creatures they enjoy having do tricks for them. A few years back they did a study and said that blacks are better athletes and better than caucasians when it comes to the physical, but caucasians are smarter. Many black people took this as a compliment! I was offended. I saw past what they were saying… In other words, we’re good beasts of burden, good slaves, perfect field workers, but no good for anything that requires thinking or intelligence. What’s worse is we feed into this, because we do not know who we are. We don’t know our greatness… and as the Honorable Malcolm X said, “If you never think you’ve done anything, how can you ever do anything? You have no self-confidence.” Without confidence in ourselves and our people, we will not go to far.
And to close this build, most caucasians choose not to see, even when the truth is pushed right into their faces.
