Woman Who Sold Racist Obama Bumper Sticker Defends Use Of The N-Word And Guiding Black People To The Promise Land..

21 Mar

It’s funny how at 3am this morning I created a poll (see to the right) about ‘Do you believe racism is alive and well in America?’ and what do you know…racist trash comes out of hiding to defend it’s ugly deed.

Remember the whole anti Obama bumper sticker a few weeks ago that generated a speckle of racism with ‘Don’t Re-Nig’ in 2012′? Well Paula Smith, the owner of the website that was selling the disgraceful paraphernalia, speaks out in defense of selling the bumper sticker, using the N-Word, and guiding black people to the promise land

Don’t believe me check out the story below…

Paula Smith who resides from Hinesville, Georgia, spoke with Roger Friedman (Forbes) and insists that neither she nor the sticker are racist. Who knows what Smith really believes, but her logic is a stretch, to put it gently.

“I do find it amazing and entertaining that one of our stickers has become a racist thing,” Ms. Smith told Forbes.

She even tried arguing that the dictionary does not define the “N-Word” as racist. Wisely, Friedman posted the actual definition from dictionary.com, which says the word, “is now probably the most offensive word in English. Its degree of offensiveness has increased markedly in recent years, although it has been used in a derogatory manner since at least the Revolutionary War. Definitions 1a, 1b, and 2 represent meanings that are deeply disparaging and are used when the speaker deliberately wishes to cause great offense.”
Her protestations aside, Ms. Smith appears to have removed the bumper sticker from her site. Under the “Anti-Obama” section of the site (advertised as her No. 3 bestseller), you’ll now only find a sticker reading, “I was Anti-Obama Before It Was Cool.”

In what may be a reference to the controversy her other bumper sticker has caused, the description below reads, “Show the world how you feel! (but be careful, you may hurt someone’s feelings).”
Ms. Smith then goes on to argue that President Obama is “not even black,” but rather, “a mixture of race.” When Friedman asks Smith if she thinks the N-Word is offensive or derogatory, she says no, but then claims that she herself does not even use the word.

“I have kids here around me that are black kids. I call them my own kids. I’ve helped black families…to guide them in the right direction,” Smith told Forbes. “We like to laugh and have a good time. That’s our way of life.”[Yahoo!]

I’ve helped black families…to guide them in the right direction’??? so what does that really suppose to mean? It goes back to “I’ve said the n-word but I got black friends and blah..blah..blah… Save that!

And not to drag politics into this because Obama will always be hated by whites, blacks, Hispanics etc… but the real important issue at hand is ‘Are moving forward or backwards as it refers to race relations in America’?
