Fit to Be Tee’d
It is that time in the election cycle to order your wildly offensive political T-shirts!
This week, someone sent us a link to MyObamaShirt.com, where President Barack Obama’s less tactful supporters can herald their politics.
The slogan emblazoned across a fitted white T-shirt that is being modeled by white people is: “Once you VOTE BLACK you NEVER go back.”
This is a play on the old saying that once someone has sexual relations with a black person, they would never want to sleep with anyone from another race again. Except this is about the U.S. presidency, where size should never matter. Though, to be fair, performance does.
We know what you’re thinking: Wow! That is racist! Or, perhaps, you’re thinking about something else entirely.
According to the website, the T-shirts are “just in time for the 2012 election!”
Yes, they are.
“Let everyone know you’re going to re-elect President Barack Obama,” the website urges. “It’s a fun way to show those Republicans how you plan to vote in November!”
Don’t want a shirt? They also have bumper stickers and pins.
Surprisingly, the website is not affiliated with the Obama campaign.
