Racist T-Shirt Portraying Obama as a Witch Doctor is Popular at SC Tea Party Convention

Let’s hope that these people don’t represent South Carolina, where this kind of thinking comes from.

(WASHINGTON DC) - President Obama’s healthcare bill has upset millions of Americans and some of them are responding in ways that are downright disrespectful and racist. A new t-shirt that is popular at the Tea Party convention in South Carolina features President Obama with a bone through his nose. The shirt says that Obama is “your new doctor, coming soon to a clinic near you!”

Bob Cramer, the man who created the t-shirt, says that the shirt “isn’t racist, it’s political.” Cramer says that decals he made of the picture on the t-shirt sold out very quickly.

Cramer continued to brag about his shirts, stating that, “I’ve had people chase me down at gas stations asking me where they can buy one, and give me thumbs up on the highway.” He also claims, “Nobody’s tried to mess with my truck, even when I’ve been in black neighborhoods and other places.”

South Carolina is also the state where Congressman Joe Wilson resides. If you’ll recall, Wilson is the man who screamed “you lie!” at President Obama during the State of the Union speech back in 2009. Let’s hope that these people don’t represent what this state is all about, but looking at the history of South Carolina, you can see where this kind of thinking comes from.

Racism is alive and well with many people in many parts of the country. Luckily, many Americans are tiring of Tea Party antics as shown in the latest elections.

Joe Wilson was correct ad nauseum.
