The Chicago Defender has a list of the most jaw droppingly racist stories of 2012.
These aren’t blatant racist stories. These are the ones that you have to scratch your head and wonder what the people were thinking. My favorite is the man from Wisconsin who claims to be an Obama supporter and yet posts a sign with a gallows on it that says, “Hang in there Obama”. “Hang” and “Obama”, though, are in large print and “in there” is much smaller. So to anyone driving by, it says, “Hang Obama”. I also somehow missed Gabby Douglas winning of the gold quickly followed by an NBC Olympics commercial of a monkey winning gold.
Don’t you just love a good top ten list? Ugh.
