Trump supporter admits: Okay, my ‘n*gger Obama’ sign might be a little racist

Another racist Donald Trump supporter.

Donald Trump’s campaign has emboldened racists. They are unabashed and out in droves. There are countless examples of blatant and unchecked racism among The Donald’s supporters, and this story out of Omaha is just another example.

Omaha, Nebraska resident Steve Bowman loves him some Donald Trump. He was interviewed by local reporter John Chapman, who reports for WOWT. Chapman also happens to be black. The reason for the interview was that Bowman had some rather interesting ways of decorating his home. He had a sign supporting Trump, and he also had a hateful, racist sign that read “N*gger Obama.”

When questioned about the signage, Bowman told Chapman:

“Well I grew up in the 60’s. I remember racial riots. I know Martin Luther King. I’m 57 so I grew up in the late 50’s early 60’s and I know what it’s like the water guns the racial riots and Birmingham. You know the south, I know all about it. I have a master’s degree in history.”

But, after pressed on the Obama sign, Bowman confessed:

“It might be a little racist.”

Even worse is the fact that Bowman’s neighbors across the street, who are black, are subjected to his signs on a regular basis. The mother of two little girls, Regina Wright, was also interviewed by WOWT. She told the station:

“He’s been putting up stuff like that constantly. Constantly putting up stuff like that and I’ll bring it up to him gently, you know, ‘take that down please you know this is not the neighborhood for that’. He understands and he will take it down after I mention it to him, but then he’ll put something else up.”

Luckily, Chapman’s words convinced Bowman to remove his latest sign. He’ll likely come up with something even more offensive in short order, though.

    I’m not American, and although my grandson is of mixed race and my daughter- in-law is black, I have no special insight into the issue of racism. It’s just not as big an issue in Canada as it is in the United States and we certainly don’t obsess over identity politics.

    I do know, however, that it’s an issue that’s unlikely to ever go away entirely. Nor do whites have a monopoly on it. Blacks can be just as vicious in their attitudes towards white people, on both sides of the border. .

    To the dispassionate observer, it doesn’t look as if President Obama has done very much to ease racial tensions during his seven years in office. Indeed, black racists are far more visible than white ones at the moment.

    But that’s no more Mr.Obama’s fault than Mr.Trump is to blame for the gentleman with the nasty signs. I’m not a Trump fan by any means, and I shudder at the prospect of a Trump presidency, but let’s keep things in perspective…

    … Just sayin’

    If he’s 57, he didn’t “grow up” in the late 50’s, early 60’s. He was in diapers in the late 50’s, and drawing with crayons in the early 60’s!

    Wait, he takes the signs down when asked and isn’t belligerent about it? What’s the problem? He’s may be high functioning Autistic or other socially awkward personality disorder, it doesn’t appear that he truly has animosity towards others different than himself.

    I will love when we overcome, as a society, our obsession with words. The intent behind those words is everything, the words themselves don’t mean crap. We need to learn to express ourselves in appropriate ways, sure. But the fact that this made a breaking news story is deeply troubling to me. A word, without actions, is not racist. A person voicing himself in a non-heated or charged way shouldn’t be treated as a racist. I know how unpopular this point of view is, but there are millions of truly scary racist folks out there. The use of a dang word is the least of our concerns right now. Yes, black and white tensions in this country are insanely high. Yes, there is all sorts of clear evidence of institutional and widespread racism. Why then, are we obsessing over trivial matters like signs people put up in a window of their own home, which, when asked to take them down, are indeed taken down? This is a personal issue that seems to be being handled quite civilly.

    Like it or not, this man is not the face of the racist problems we face in this country. He is a scapegoat and a diversion tactic from desperate news outlets to cover things that are much easier than the deep and far reaches of institutional problems.

    Are you serious? Black racists are more visible than white ones? You described your mixed race grandchild and black daughter in law as if they were some sort of credential or disclaimer. If you have to point out what blacks have done that is comparable to what whites have done concerning racism, then you are a racist. You don’t have to think you are a racist to be one and your son marrying a black person or having a mixed race grandchild proves nothing. Slave masters had children with slaves all the time.

    He may have a degree in History, but he has a Masters in stupidity.
