Uh-huh.
from the article: "One neighbor said the Obama figure initially had a sign asking people to pray Obama won’t destroy the United States."

Ok, freedom of speech gives the right, but if you hate like Obama's politics or and/or think he is destroying the US, why don't you make a substantial statement instead of resorting to racial sterotypes?

Just another angry tea-bagger still upset because they couldn’t get the Black guy out of the White House. This coward would never put this up around other Black people… I would take great pleasure in making him take it down.

You have to know the history of widely accepted and institutionally practiced racism to understand why blacks eating watermelon is considered an offensive stereotype

And after all of that, with Sean Hannity and fox news repeating that over and over again; with unemployment above 7% and with the haters spewing their worst hate…

HE WAS STILL RE-ELECTED!

The Black guy won, and we are laughing our ass off as idiots like you who continue to cry the same rhetoric that got you absolutely nothing on November 6th…
