‘Don’t Re-Nig,’ the racist anti-Obama bumper sticker, appears real

    Is this racist, anti-Obama bumper sticker real?

An image purporting to show a racist, anti-Obama bumper sticker on the back of a vehicle has been garnering lots of attention on Facebook in the past 24 hours.

The bumper sticker reads, "Don't Re-Nig in 2012." And in smaller print below, "Stop repeat offenders. Don't' reelect Obama!" The sticker also features an image of the Obama campaign logo crossed out.

Several viewers have claimed the image has been digitally altered. After all, it seems shocking that someone would proudly display an openly racist image on their vehicle in 2012. So, is the image authentic?

In short, yes.

It's still unclear is the image of the vehicle has been altered in any way, but a website called "Stumpy's Stickers" offers the bumper sticker for sale for $3. And as The Root points out, the site also several other racially insensitive items for sale as well. The urban myth debunking site Snopes says it cannot yet determine the origins of the photo, but also points out the availability of other similar t-shirts and bumper stickers.

There is even an eponymous "Dontre-nig.com" website that appears to have crashed. Going to the page brings up a "Bandwith Limit Exceeded" warning message. I checked the domain registration service site WHOIS, which listed the site as belonging to an anonymous owner who purchased the URL through the company DomainsByProxy.com, based in Scottsdale, Arizona. The company specializes in keeping the names of Internet domain owners private.

And as one astute Facebook reader pointed out, the bumper sticker is not only offensive, it's pretty dumb. After all, if you take the top message at its literal meaning, to not renege in 2012, would mean to in fact re-elect President Obama.

    Honest people are admittedly racist or better called realistic about race. No one should fear the label "racist". It is a code word use by those who are anti-white.

    Stumpy's website is down as well. Good riddance if it is real.

    Don't know if it's a photo-shop and don't really care, considering everything else that has trasnpired in the world of double standards.

    However, Hank Williams Jr put out a song urilizing the correct meaning of the word and aptly associates it in "The Great Reneger".

    There needs to be an indepth investigation of the stickers origin. There are two distinct possibilities. One some racists and the other the President's reelection committee.
