Vendor at Texas GOP Convention Peddles Racist Wares
Pins for sale at a convention for the Texas GOP read: "If Obama is President ... will we still call it The White House?"
This isn't thinly veiled racism. It is in your face racism and the fact that a licensed booth was allowed to sell such a racist attack on the presumptive Democratic nominee for President of the United States at the Texas Republican Convention is an absolute embarrassment.
Unfortunately it is probably a safe bet to say that this is just the beginning in a wave of ignorant and intolerant political-attack materials that will grow in the coming months. It is absolutely essential that both parties make sure that this type of hate merchandise doesn't show up at official rallies and conventions. The world is watching, let's not allow the race for the Oval Office to be dragged down by bigotry.
