Trump Supporter Hangs ‘N****r Obama’ Poster In Window On MLK Day, Admits It’s ‘A Little Racist’

A Donald Trump supporter in Omaha, NE displaying a poster in his window on MLK Day that said ‘N****r Obama’ was confronted by an African American reporter, admitting the sign is ‘a little racist.’

Via Raw Story:

WOWT reporter John Chapman interviewed Steve Bowman, a white man living in northeast Omaha, on Tuesday morning. Bowman’s home was festooned with a sign in his window announcing he is a supporter of GOP candidate Trump. He also displayed a sign that said “n***er Obama.”

“Well I grew up in the 60’s,” Bowman said when asked by Chapman if he thought the Obama sign was too much. “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.”

He then admitted, “It might be a little racist.”

It so happens that Bowman lives across the street from an African-American family, with two young girls.

After further consideration and discussion with Chapman, Bowman has decided to take the sign down, which – along with his ‘black friends and neighbors’ – we can most assuredly look forward to him now using as proof that he is not racist anymore.
