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.

College basketball band chants racist taunt

Wow, this is just unbelievable. Why? That's all I can ask, is why? Why do that?
Members of the University of Southern Mississippi band chanted racist taunts at a hispanic Kansas State player during the schools' NCAA tournament game on Thursday.

After point guard Angel Rodriguez was fouled late in the first half of the second-round game, a few band members showered the freshman with cries of "where's your green card?"
