Grey NYC's Creative director Tor Myhren came up with this brilliant poster to bring into the forefront what a lot of people have been thinking of, but couldn't bring themselves to say in polite company: the issue of race in the 2008 US Presidential election.

Hi Mr. Brain: It's me again. No bladder problems here. Yea, I've worked with those kind of people too! I'm really a nice person.
