Racism in America?  Still doesn’t exist anymore.  Still ended circa 1968.  This must be the product of a big misunderstanding:

A family who had supported Barack Obama’s presidential campaign emerged from their home in the northwestern New Jersey town of Hardwick Thursday morning to find the charred remnants of a 6-foot wooden cross on their front lawn.

Pieces of a homemade bedsheet banner reading “President Obama , Victory ’08,” which had been stolen from the yard the night before, also were found, leading investigators to believe the banner had been wrapped around the cross before it was set afire.

Jumping to conclusions, the homeowner plays the race card in a blatant attempt to use Nazistalinist tactics to silence dissent.  Socialism in America, my friends. 

Grewal said his 8-year-old daughter, Arianna, spotted the banner wrapped around the burnt cross as they walked toward their car to drive to school.

“She saw it, that’s what bothered me the most,” Grewal said Thursday. “You can imagine the types of questions she was asking. It was very tough to explain.”

Oh no he didn’t just hide behind his kid!  Or mention her out of heartfelt concern.  Either way, the 8 year old is fair game.  We’ve got some countertops to investigage.  Cry havoc, and let slip the Davids of war!
