Put The White Back In The White House T-Shirt At Ohio Campaign Event

Romney Supporter Wears 'Put The White Back In The White House' T-Shirt At Ohio Campaign Event

A supporter of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was spotted wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the words "Put the white back in the White House" at a campaign event this week





Of Course Romney's campaign denounced it, but what else are they going to do?

And if people think this is just an isolated event, the are wrong.



This is not the first time in recent weeks that racism has been directed towards President Barack Obama.

On Tuesday, The Huffington Post reported that "a spate of symbolic protests against [the president] that have featured empty chairs and racist imagery continued this week in California, with an arrangement featuring a noose, watermelons and a birther sign."




Now I know a lot of people like to claim that there is no racism involved in the opposition to Obama, but the fact is that there is in some cases.

Now this doesn't mean that everyone who opposes Obama does so because of racism, but it is ridiculous for people to claim that racism isn't a factor. In my personal opinion, I think racism plays a bigger role than most people like to admit. People have an irrational hate for Obama, and not much else can explain that besides racism.

Let's just all be aware that racism is a part of our reality and that it is a factor in this election.

The horror.



There is a double standard at work here and you are pushing it.

I don't think you read the OP.

I specifically said the opposite.

And of course you try to claim it is a "progressive" wearing it, the right wing has a problem taking responsibility for things.

By the Romney Ryan sticker?

Back on topic. There is no way of getting rid of the racists when it comes to politics it has always happened and will always happen. There are people that will always hate race and religion.

So you choose to defend racism, that's nice.

You show me someone with a t-shirt or sign that says "Keep the White House Black" and I'll call them out as a racist as well.

It's people like you, even if you are not racist yourself but defend it, that keeps racism alive.

I find prejudice and racism to be very sad. I think you will find it in all parties and in those that are unaffiliated as well.

It worries me that some people focus on race when it comes to politics. I really don't care if our president were to be purple as long as he/she/other can get the job done right.

People like my self used to get told to be proud to be the colour I am, brown. I was one mixed race guy out of thousands of white youths so you can see that I had to empower my self somehow, and not let the racist comments get to me. Been told that my black history was swinging from trees and did improve until the white man came and saved us was a daily joke, until I learned that was all bull#. So yeah I'm proud to be the colour I am - your closed minded double standards comment is pretty much bull# because when "I'm proud to be white" is said, it's mostly in a derogatory way, unlike me who used it to empower my self over nonsense.

I'm sure if you moved somewhere abroad where you are a minority and your history has been manipulated, out would empower you're self through finding out the truth and stating to these idiots that you're proud to be the colour you are.

And if you really understood the social/racial class of you're country - it would of took you allot longer to post that utter crap.

Voting for a man because he is black is just as bad as voting for a man because he isn't black.

There is a double standard and you are pushing it.

My son is of mixed race, so perhaps you should re-think your analysis?

There is a double standard and you yourself just displayed it.

Being proud to be black is empowering but to be proud to be white is derogatory...

Obama got 95% of the black vote. State the truth of that .. that it was because he's black and they wanted a black man in the White House .. or eat your words.

BTW .. your source is Huffington Post. Find the same info at a few non-biased sites for backup. Otherwise, for all we know, it easily could be a so called 'progressive' wearing that shirt. Afterall ... the 'progressives' were the ones who got together and tried to infiltrate Tea Party gatherings while wearing racist clothing. They even published pamphlets on how to do it. :shk:

Left Wing Agitators Plan to Infiltrate Tea Party
Plenty more stories just like that .. it's the M.O. of the far left ... they can't be honest when it comes to politics.

peace.

so you guys know that the whole white black thing in politics is just to keep people entertained by politics, the winner has been chosen, and whomever it is will continue the agenda of the higher ups, you can look at the story that politics has portrayed and then watch the WWF and watch the similarities unfold. Keep arguing over a lie and see how much it doesn't matter in the end.

The OP said nothing of the sort. I'm sure you're a republican just defending your party, but stop putting the blinders on and see only what you want to see. If you prescribe to the notion that nobody in this entire country is voting for Romney and Ryan based upon race, you're as close minded as most lock step party affiliated voters.

Its becoming a joke isn't it. Its becoming like something you would read on the comment sections of CNN, MSNBC or SkyNews. ATS - Deny Ignorance..You would think its was ATS - Embrace Ignorance & Never Back Down When You're Wrong.

ATS - You've lost that little niche you had, its now a political hotbed of mainstream bull#.
