Comments: Dear African American "Community Leaders",

Of course they won't say anything. Just like that display someone had of McCain doing the KKK thing chasing BO. They are all hypocrites.

BTW, I love it when you're so mad you curse.

I can't believe the outrageous crap these idiots have been pulling!

I'll be sooo glad when this election is over... except when I said that to my husband this morning he said: "even when it's over it won't be over".
Spoilsport.

Just down the road from me a guy had a ghost hanging from a tree with Obama printed on it; everyone was up in arms, wanting to burn the racist's house, etc etc...good gawd people, get a grip! I agree, if this had been a black, male mannequin there would have been hell to pay, I bet!

This is so disgusting that I am sick to my stomach. It's absolute BS to say its ok because its Halloween. Absolute BS. I'm sure people on both sides think this is disgusting.

Totally wrong. Only a fool can defend murdering and lynching effigies.

I agree. I don't see how ANYONE can see this and not be sickened by it.

OMG, I am totally in love with your blog. Love your writing style. I must come back. ;)
I agree with you on this post, what is wrong with people? I have no answers, only further questions. It makes me sick.

Un-fucking-believable!

He may not be your favorite person, but Keith Olbermann just named this idiot who made the effigy art the "Worst Person in the World" today. He repudiated it his show which I'm sure you can see eventually up.

I'm sure you got their attention. Uh-huh.

It's sick and disgusting to the nth degree, but not at all surprising. These idiots are so bigoted, racist, and downright stupid, I'm never surprised by how low they will stoop in pursuit of their goal.

No matter which candidate it had been - yes even Obama or Biden hung in effigy - it's wrong. It's not art and it's not cute. We don't see this being done by the other side and if it were done, it would be roundly condemned.

But at least we know the "enemy". We have seen what they accept without a blink. Remember this, know what you're fighting so you are never taken off guard or think they have anything resembling "feelings".

I think between the attack hoax in Pittsburgh and the recent ATF bust of skinheads plotting to assasinate Obama and a number of African Americans, there's plenty of crap coming from the conservative side too. These are the outliers that tarnish the political process that makes this country great.

But pray tell, please inform me of who the "enemy" is. And how should a good American respond to such "enemies." Just curious. Really.

I totally agree - it's an offensive display.

How is it that women somehow escaped the "hate crimes" definition? I'm sure that many violent crimes are committed against women because someone hated their gender and wanted to exert control.

Contagion beat me to posting the opposing story of someone doing the same thing with Obama's image.
