“Don’t Re-Nig 2012″ Bumper Sticker Creator Swears It’s Not Racist
When is the n-word not racist? Apparently when you are a paint ball field owner who “helped black families…to guide them in the right direction,” and you make anti-Obama bumper stickers in your spare time.
Sticker guru Paula Smith, who has become an internet sensation this week due to her controversial “Don’t Re-Nig 2012″ bumper stickers featuring an Obama for America logo with a strike through it, told Forbes Magazine that she had no intention of making a racist item. “Ms. Smith insisted that the bumper sticker is not racist,” wrote Roger Friedman. “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.’”
Smith reiterated that she is not racist, either. She just doesn’t like the president because he’s “giving” too much away to immigrants. “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.”
There. She’s totally cleared up all of that racism talk now.
