Huffington Post – The Getty Images photograph was taken on Friday at a Romney/Ryan campaign event in Lancaster, Ohio. According to Buzzfeed, a Romney spokesperson “commented that the shirt was reprehensible and has no place in this election.” This is not the first time in recent weeks that racism has been directed towards President Barack Obama. On Tuesday, The Huffington Post reported that “a spate of symbolic protests against [the president] that have featured empty chairs and racistimagery continued this week in California, with an arrangement featuring a noose, watermelons and a birther sign.” “Go back to Kenya you idiot,” read the sign that was reportedly set up along a remote road in Santa Clara County, Calif.
So much for racism being on the decrease. We cant even have a civilized Presidential race without it rearing its ugly head. Its one thing for all the blacks to vote for Obama because he’s black, and to have all the rich vote for Romney because he only cares about the rich, that’s expected. But its quite another to have Republicans in the community putting out shirts that read, “Put The White Back In The White House.” We literally owned the White House for 220 years. That’s 43 Presidents. Black people have had 1 President for 4 years. Plus Barack is half white and he was raised by his mom who is white. Therefore making the White House still partially white. Therefore meaning the White House has remained white this whole time. Therefore making these shirts seem even more racist because they don’t even make sense.
However, that doesn’t mean I still don’t want one of these bad boys so I can wear it to the polls when I vote for Barack. Sorry Mitt, I’m a poor, non-racist, scumbag blogger who’s just trying to keep the White House partially white.
