Angry and Black Since 1976; Somebody's Momma Since 2010
I would think this woman would be even more scared if her son is black. On a slightly unrelated topic, I've been back in Ohio since the past Summer now and I've seen more than a few bm/ww combinations, more than I remember when I lived here years ago but I've literally not seen one bw/wm couple the entire time I've been here, not even in the cities.
Poor C1, we gotta find you a place with a bunch of black women. I think you will always see a BM/WW couple, you will see that even in the smallest towns. I will say in Dallas the number of BW/WM relationships are growing, and I have noticed we get less looks when out in public than in the past, unless we go to the Cheesecake Factory (j/k).
The video is no longer available. What was it about?
C1,You can't be too scared he can't even spell.-----Kat I updated the video, and put a back up video up there just in case.
Here is the story:FAIRFIELD, Ohio -- A Butler County man said his hanging "Obama ghost" is a political statement, but admits there may be a racial message intended, as well.Police asked Mike Lunsford to take down a ghost decoration hanging from a tree in front of his Fairfield home, but the rope still hangs from the tree and the ghost was set in front of the Symmes Road duplex.The ghost doesn't have an image of presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama on it, but has "Hussain" written in green ink on the front, referring to Obama's middle name, Hussein.“I saw the black lady in Florida put up the Obama mannequin getting chased by John McCain in a Ku Klux Klan outfit,” Lunsford said. “Everybody thought that was OK, so I decided to name my ghost ‘Hussein Obama.’”Lunsford said he took down the effigy to protect his family, but denied that they received any threats.“Not really, just dirty looks and stuff,” said Lunsford, who said he might put it back up again soon.When News 5's Karin Johnson asked if the display was political or racist, Lunsford said it was a political statement.But when pressed, Johnson said Lunsford admitted it might be racist, too.“It could be,” Lunsford said.Copyright 2008 by WLWT.com.

If it's a political message, why is the ghost named Hussein Obama and why is there a Star of David on his head?I don't see why you'd go to the lengths that he did to point out he was an Ay-rhab and then stamp him with a symbol that has nothing to do with that culture.Of course it's racist: he was trying to kill all his anti- birds (anti-black, -Muslim, -spell check and -semetic) with one effigy.
I see the video now, thanks.As for the man who hung the effigy, I'm not surprised people like him exist and there's not much anyone can do since the effigy is in his yard but I'm more impressed that other people in the neighborhood are aware and disapprove of the hanging effigy.
This is so ignorant. I believe in freedom of speech, but this is offensive. The ugliness of bigotry has really come out in full force this year. It only means that these people see Obama as a serious threat. When he was a long shot, no one was really talking about him. It's very sad, but there may always be people who think that way and don't see anything wrong with it.I will say in Dallas the number of BW/WM relationships are growing, and I have noticed we get less looks when out in public than in the past, unless we go to the Cheesecake Factory (j/k).My best friend lives in Houston and she says there is a growing number of BW/AM combinations, which is interesting.
