A Georgia restaurant owner says his anti-Obama sign is about health care but many residents are calling it racism. The sign reads, Obama’s plan for health-care: N****r rig it.”
CBS Atlanta’s Michelle Marsh noted the Klu Klux Klan costume as she entered Patrick Lanzo’s restaurant but he says he’s not a racist.
“I’ve been putting up signs for 22 years and I’ve put up all kinds of political signs,” Lanzo told her.
When asked why he chose to use the N-word, Lanzo replied, “Well, I’ve used it most of my life. There are different ways to put your opinion up, but that’s just the words I choose.”
