South Carolina Man Claims Really Racist Anti-Obama T-Shirt Isn’t Racist Because He Said So

A guy in South Carolina named Bob Cramer (who is totally not racist, by the way) is selling t-shirts featuring that image of President Obama dressed like a witchdoctor with a bone through his nose. You know the one — it was all the rage during the Death Panels Will Kill Us All era of the Obama presidency.

Bob has been told that it’s racist, but it’s not, he says. It’s political, he says. Besides, no black people have said shit to him about it, so… no fuss, no muss.

    And if the people in those “black neighborhoods” did try to mess with him, well…all that would do is prove who the REAL RACISTS are. Because it’s totally reverse racist to be bothered by blatant racism. When it’s done by white people.

    Honestly? Sometimes I’m glad that those fucks don’t consider Jews to be white, because I sure as fuck hate sharing any bit of biology with them. Yuck.

    One of the benefits of being a racist is that you don’t have a hell of a lot of black friends around to tell you that sort of thing.

    That’s just how us folks here in SC is. My fellow citizens, in numbers too many to be ignored, can be pig-ignorant even of their ignorance. Dumb-ass retarded simpletons like this fellow are held down by a shitty education system just as institutional racism holds the blahs back from birth to the grave. Oh, and wetbacks too, but who else would maintain the courses at Kiawah and Wild Dunes? We kinda have to give them a by…

    South Carolina is one big fucking Walmart. We elect the dumbest politicians, and when one isn’t dumb, he’s one mean son of a bitch. Alvin Greene? Jesus fuck…I’m still waiting for the truth of his story to come out, and it will be a whopper. Tim Scott in the Senate!? Sweet Jesus in a sinking boat this is the stuff of a horrid midnight tale told in a thunderstorm. The kids won’t sleep for a week. Wait ’til they find out it’s all real.

    Thanks for letting me vent…

    When I see stories like this, remember this President Obama has been re-elected, there is nothing more these dumb peckerwoods can do jack shit about it. So let these dumb crackers show their ass, every day is more day closer to the collapse of their confederate fantasy land. Let them DIAF and bury them in the hole but not before I piss on the casket.

    @Joseph Nobles:
    It’s a particularly dumb one, too. Does anyone thing random black people on the street are going to see his truck, associate it with the t-shirts, and do something to him as he’s driving through? If he really doesn’t think those shirts are offensive, let’s see him walk through those neighborhoods wearing one.

    Oh, yeah, but who would know better whether something’s racist than an enlightened white man? I mean, hell, if you listen to those people, well, hell, everything’s racist. They should just sit the fuck down, shut the fuck up, and let nice Mr. Cramer tell them what is and isn’t racist.

    Just once, could one of these asswipes own up to their racism? They won’t come out and say what they want to, “I hate the president because he’s a nigger, and I hate niggers!” They won’t say that because they know people will know they’re loathesome asshole racists. But the thing is, they’re already loathesome gutless asshole racists, so just being loathesome asshole racists would be a step up for them.

    Fuck. These are the same tough guys who are forever going on about what great warriors they are, and we’ll have to tear their guns out of their cold, dead hands, and we liberals had damned well watch out, ’cause they don’t take no bullshit, no way, no how! They’re so fucking tough, but they’re scared to say what they believe because people will say mean things about them. Fuck.

    I know I’m being a pain in the arse pedant, but that isn’t a witchdoctor with Obama’s face stuck on him.

    It’s a New Guinea highland chief, or Bigman.

    Not that it matters in the racism department, but it does mean that Obama is almost certainly more closely related to this chief through his mother than through his father. So too with this Cramer character.

    But with racism, it’s always the thought that counts.

    majii says:

    The black folks in those neighborhoods are too pre-occupied with laughing at his ignorant butt to even think about laying a hand on him or his vehicle. People like Cramer give us lots to laugh at. Guy’s so stupid that he doesn’t know that the joke’s on him. Only in America can an ignorant tool think he’s doing something important while others are laughing their asses off.

    I lived in Greenville SC for four months in ’79. It was way too long.
    I remember the time I was talking with some good Christian boys and they started going on about wanting to lynch a black guy who was in jail on suspician of supposedly stabbing a white guy in a bar. I guess they don’t have courts down there. But it was all bullshit ’cause those weanies weren’t going to do anything. It’s just the way they talk in Greenville.
    That gomer should get hisself a booth over ta Anderson Auction. They’d go nut fer that shit over thar.
