Obama signs defaced with racial slurs
CBS 13 reported on the vandalism of Obama signs in Sacramento.
“Racial slurs and insults were spray painted onto a Sacramento homeowner’s fence, which had Barack Obama’s name in support of the senator’s presidential campaign, but the owner says she will leave the vandalized fence as it is to serve as an example of racism and prejudice.”
“Matt Martinez and his partner painted the pro-Obama signs on their fence two weeks ago, and it remained untouched until Monday night. Apparent white supremacist slogans and racial slurs now surround the original painting, turning heads and shocking commuters Tuesday morning.”
“Martinez says he and his partner knew their pro-Obama display would elicit emotion, but not vandalism. Despite the graphic nature of the slurs, he plans to leave the vandalism untouched for now, believing it would serve a bigger purpose than painting over it.”
