Oh, Those HILARIOUS Michigan Racists
The next time some racist says YOU are the racist because you had the temerity to point to some racist thing he or she said, and he or she says it wasn’t meant the way you took it and besides, “racism is dead” because we have a black president (or “half-black” as they like to say), show them this picture.
The Michigan Department of Transportation is working with police to determine who hacked into a road sign and posted a racial slur along a freeway seen early Monday morning.
The portable electronic sign contained a reference to Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old African-American who died Feb. 26 in Sanford, Fla., after being shot by a neighborhood watch volunteer.
The Michigan State Police began receiving calls about the sign at about 1 a.m., according to Michigan Department of Transportation spokesman Rob Morosi.
The picture was shot by the sister of Tweeter @mizkorona who gave me and others permission to publish it.
And we can already predict the racist response.
1. What? “They” call each other that word all the time? Why is it only offensive when we do it?
2. It was probably one of “them” who hacked the sign. “They” are such professional victims with Rev. Al and Jesse showing up any time one of “them” stubs “their” toe to complain about white people. “They” probably did it just to stir up race hatred.
3. It had to be some kid. No grownup would do that. Besides, we have a half-black president now. How can you say there’s racism in America when our president is half-black?
The Michigan Department of Transportation reported:
The hacker was able to access the controls of the sign by breaking off a lock.
“So we’re looking at vandalism and breaking and entering,” Morosi said. “The hacker also took a keyboard from the sign. We’re working with the MSP to find out who was responsible for this unfortunate act.”
We’ll just have to hope that someone stupid enough to write such a horribly racist thing about a 17-year old high school student, killed with a bullet in the chest fired by a self-appointed neighborhood watch captain for the crime of walking on a sidewalk while black, armed with a dangerous can of iced tea (which could raise a bruise) and a bag of Skittles (which can blind one if thrown directly into a person’s eye) was stupid enough to leave some fingerprints behind.
Still think things are getting bettter?
Wake the hell up.
