Former Chicago Cubs slugger and black man Sammy Sosa was in Panama last week, where he met the president, toured the country and did something or other with a giant painting of himself where he looks a lot blacker than he really is these days.

Although Sosa is Dominican, he got to hang with Panamanian president Ricardo Martinelli and first lady Marta Linares de Martinelli and either they gave him a giant poster of himself or he gave them a giant painting of himself. Two odd things here — first, he’s in a Texas Rangers uniform an, well, Sosa’s face.

While we’re aware Sosa played for the Rangers, he’s obviously better known as a member of the Cubs, so this is kind of a dumb painting.

And then, of course, there’s the face. Sosa’s is white, even though it used to be black. The face on the poster is a bit darker. This white face is all on account of some sort of skin cream Sosa uses. He doesn’t seem to care though, since he keeps using it.

Are you from Panama and know what the f#$k is going on with Sosa in Panama? WTF is with that painting and why the f$%^ would he be repping the Rangers? Do tell.
