A college bar in Connecticut is making news with a cardboard cutout of President Obama that it keeps behind the bar. The problem is that the cutout is adorned with accessories that portray Obama as a pimp. The accessories include gold teeth, a hair pick, a pink woman’s hat, beads and plenty of other “bling.”
My favorite quote comes from the bar owner: “We’re not Russia yet. We’re not North Korea yet. We can still make fun of the president.” Interesting.
Is this harmless fun or is it racism that should not be tolerated?
