Road Kill T-Shirt Sells Racist Anti-Obama T-Shirts

Drumbeats from Black Political Thought showed us that racist feelings in our nation continue to run strong. Check out these racist t-shirts being sold on 'Road Kill T-Shirts' website.


Difficult to argue that racism isn't alive and well when you see folks selling t-shirts that show KKK members chasing presidential candidate Barack Obama or feature swinging nooses.

Road Kill T-Shirts tried to distance themselves from the racist t-shirts on their website. “We recently hired a freelancer to create designs and post them on our site,” wrote Mike from Road Kill T-Shirts. “We have teams of them and, unfortunately, these were put up in the last couple of days without approval. While the site can be edgy…I can guarantee you this is not the type of stuff we approve of.”

Villagers, we need to keep our eyes on the look-out for this type of racist nonsense over the next five months. When we see it ... we must call it ... and it must be stopped. That is my thought. What say u?

WOW!!

What is really messed up is that I'm sure they sold some of these shirts before they took them off the website.

And what does that say about the society in which we live?

Stuck - We have a long way to go before we have conquered our nation's issue with race. I am hopeful that Obama helps us to deal with the issue honestly and we can move forward. The fact that this website had the bright light shined on it and that the roaches had to scatter is a good thing...

Lets be realistic guys there are 29.7 Billion websites as of last year, I am sure at the rate its increasing were talking over 30 billion websites and you guys are worried because one person made a few racist t shirts. Do you guys have any idea how many shirts were sold? I did some research and checked into these shirt sales and less than 100 were sold. There will always be people in the world we do not agree with. There will always be some people who hate mexicans, whites, chinese, african americans etc. But it is not accurate to judge a society off of one website that few people even pay attention to especially considering there are 30 billion web sites. Yes these shirts are bad but they do not effect us. It is an idiot, someone who bases their income off trying to make idiots of others, why give him the time of day? Just turn the cheek because these t shirts are meaningless to society and meaningless to the American people.

JCA6000 - I imagine that there were some in Germany who had the same thoughts when those cute armbands with the Jewish star began to pop up here and there. The lesson learned? When racism pops its head up ... smack it down! At least that is what we try to do in this village...

What kind of country is this when they have to stop selling those shirts because people are offended by rascism. its a free country to wear what you want and say what you want, its a free country, and people should be free to be rascist. Fuck you progressive communists.

Villager said...

HCallahan - One thing is for sure ... America is a different country post-November 4th. We are a nation looking for ways to unify ... and we are not as tolerant of people or t-shirts that seek to divide us as a result of race...
