lynching is a direct reference to the racial strife in this nation when African Americans were lynched (primarily in the Southern states) by racist whites. Homeowner Bud Johnson has a “lynched” empty chair on display in his front yard to depict President Obama.
When asked about his front yard display, Johnson was unapologetic. [SOURCE]
“I don’t really give a damn whether it disturbs you or not,” Johnson said. “You can take [your concerns] and go straight to hell and take Obama with you. I don’t give a shit. If you don’t like it, don’t come down my street.”I guess that our President must be getting used to the racist backlash to his presidency. At a GOP Convention in Montana, birthers put on a nasty display to demonstrate their disdain for President Obama by setting up an outhouse labeled 'Obama’s Presidential Library'.
A photo of an anti-Obama bumper sticker, labelled 'Don’t Re-Nig In 2012,' above smaller print that read, 'Stop repeat offenders. Don’t re-elect Obama!' went viral in March.
In addition, President Obama has also been referenced as a tar baby and un-American, which many consider code speak for 'not one of us' because he’s Black.
