If you read the title to this post and thought “Oh my goodness, Incredipete has stooped to a new low by having a racist title,” you are officially what this post is about.
There’s currently a bit of a hubbub about a sign along a highway here in Kansas that refers to Obama as “niggardly” and against small business. Most of the people that have ranted about this sign claim it’s racist.
To those race-baiting morons – You are idiots.
Is it racist to use the word “niggardly?” Not one bit. Would it be racist if I said that all people who are ignorant of the definition of “niggardly” are obviously black? Yes, that would be racist. And I also wouldn’t say that. A vast majority of the people complaining that the sign is racist are poor white idiots.
This would be the equivalent of me seeing a bumper sticker that said “honk if you are Incredipete” – and then I got offended because “honk” sounds like “honky.”
People who get offended by everything that could (even in the most outrageous ways) be construed as racism need to drop dead.
Niggardly people are everywhere, and frankly, I disagree with the characterization of Obama as niggardly – on the contrary… he likes to shop till he drops. He spends money like it grows on trees. Heck, he prints money in the basement so he can go out and spend more!
Nope, Obama is not niggardly, but it isn’t racist to say so… just incorrect.
