Racism against President Obama has gone viral. There has been a bumper sticker featured that shows Obama’s brand with a slash through it and it reads “Don’t Re-Nig 2012″. Sure enough, this little gem comes from Paula Smith and her company “Stickatude”. I read an interview with Paula featured in Forbes.
First, I couldn’t believe the interview is running in Forbes. In Touch I could see, even People, but I have a hard time believing that Paula even knows what Forbes is, let alone that she agreed to an exclusive interview. Anyway, Ms. Smith doesn’t believe the N word even means black person, but instead says this, “According to the dictionary [the N word] does not mean black. It means a low down, lazy, sorry, low down person. That’s what the N word means.”
Earth to Ms. Smith, either you need a quick history lesson or you are living in a wonderful world of denial. Now I am well aware that world of denial usually involves some home brew narcotic and that’s why I have to show ID every time I need a decongestant at my local drug store.
Ms. Smith goes on to say, ““I do find it amazing and entertaining that one of our stickers has become a racist thing,” Isn’t that just the funniest thing Ms. Smith that a bumper sticker with the word nigger in it would go on to become a “racist thing”. How on earth do you think that would happen? Maybe because it has one of the most offensive words ever used to describe a race of people? Could that have something to do with it? I can’t wait to read the stickers about the Holocaust. That should be hilarious.
Now I didn’t want to judge a book by the cover, so I needed to do some investigative research. I went to Stickatude to find out more about the products Ms. Smith sells. In case you fellow racists were wondering, the “Don’t Re-Nig” sticker is sold out. I’m sure your local KKK chapter has other racist items that they would be happy to sell you. If you can’t wait, here are some other gems for purchase off of Stickatude:
“Lift your truck, Fat chicks can’t climb”. Just a little observation, how would the driver of truck get in it? Usually the driver has not missed a super sized meal. Hum..I’m going to have to think about this one.
“Jesus Loves You, everyone else thinks you’re an asshole” This one will be wonderful sitting outside of your rural church on Sundays.
“Shock me and say something intelligent” Probably someone with this on their vehicle has a pretty low shock standard.
On to the “political” section. There is a disclaimer at the top where Ms. Smith says she is neither democrat or republican, but an American. She is anti-Obama and pro-gun (shocker) and all for supporting our troops.
“Let men marry men, and women marry women. In three generations there won’t be any democrats.” A racist and homophobic. Awesome combination Ms. Smith although not surprising I must add.
“Somewhere in Kenya a village lost its idiot” Obama is not from Kenya so this one doesn’t even make sense. I believe the idiot is you Ms. Smith
“God, Guns and Guts Made America. Let’s Keep All Three.”
This last one leads me to the most interesting tab on this website…”Christian Stickas”
Ms. Smith goes from her racist, homophobic stickers to her stickers that call people fat and stupid and then she has a tab devoted to the lord, Jesus Christ.
“America Needs a Faith Lift” Yes, Ms. Smith, please take note.
“God wants spiritual fruits, not religious nuts.” Couldn’t agree more Ms. Smith.
“Heading the wrong direction, God allows u-turns.” Can I take this little beauty and stick it over your mouth?
I beg you Ms. Smith, please take all the money you will make on your sudden fame and take a sensitivity training. This might also be a good time to study up on American history. Know that the word nigger is absolutely not “cute”, it is hurtful and racist. Whether you like President Obama’s politics or not, he is still our President and he deserves to be treated with respect. Just because you know a black person that does not make immune from racism. I’m all for Christianity, even though I’m Jewish, but the good part about Christianity. I didn’t see a Jew hating bumper sticker, but I probably didn’t look hard enough. If bumper sticker intelligence is all you have, please read the Christian Sticka tab on your own website and take some of those messages to heart. It’s the least you can do since you have embarrassed yourself. I’m not fully sure you even understand that. Then again who am I…oh that’s right, just a Jewish, heterosexual democrat, fat chick who hates guns, loves Obama and I’ve never played paint ball-so summed up not your “demographic”. You might want to look that word up in your dictionary.
