That’s right, America! According to the people who run a bumper sticker company, you can safely call anyone a nigger because it’s just not a bad word anymore. After all, their bumper sticker “2012: Don’t Re-Nig!” is a fast seller, so it must be OK, right?
Paula Smith of Hinesville, Georgia has a company called Stickatude.com. And they’re selling their own version of an anti-Obama bumper sticker that reads “Don’t Re-Nig 2012.” Ms. Smith told me in a telephone conversation on Saturday afternoon that the bumper sticker has been in their inventory since June 2010, but just in the last few days it’s started selling. The price is $3. Ms. Smith insisted that the bumper sticker is not racist. I asked her about the “N” word, for which “nig” is the shortened version. “According to the dictionary [the N word] does not mean black. It means a low down, lazy, sorry, low down person. That’s what the N word means.”
This, my friends, is what happens when people who are still waiting to evolve thumbs get involved in politics. The other stickers on her site aren’t quite as racist, but they’re really, really dumb all the same. One actually says, “As long as there are test, there will be prayer in public schools.” What the fuck does that mean? And shouldn’t “test” be plural? Stupid people make my head hurt.
Oh, this is going to be a nasty election–the racists and bigots who have been sleeping somewhat quietly under their pile of cow shit are slowly awakening and coming out to barf their insane Dark Ages ideas all over us once again. It’s gonna be a bumpy ride. Don’t believe me? Here’s a parting bit of elegantly-worded wisdom from the Nig Woman that might convince you:
I just want someone that’s going to help the United States and not give it other countries all the time. And stop giving the immigrants the benefits that most Americans inside their own states can’t even get because they’re giving it others who don’t even live here as an American.
Yeah, whatever. Do let us know if those thumbs eventually come in, will you?
