Racist bumper sticker

A woman named Paula Smith, who was selling bumper stickers that said "Don't Re-Nig In 2012" on them, has now pulled them off her site but says they weren't racist.

Writing for Forbes, Roger Friedman interviews the site's owner, Paula Smith. Ms. Smith, who hails from Hinesville, Georgia, insists that neither she nor the sticker are racist.

"I do find it amazing and entertaining that one of our stickers has become a racist thing," Ms. Smith told Forbes.


Ms. Smith then goes on to argue that President Obama is "not even black," but rather, "a mixture of race." When Friedman asks Smith if she thinks the N-Word is offensive or derogatory, she says no, but then claims that she herself does not even use the word.

Umm lady, those bumper stickers are racist.
