There’s not much to say about this unfortunate incident in West Allis, Wisconsin.
In the grainy video, patrons of Yesteryears Bar set up an effigy of President Obama and light it, country music playing in the background. Thank goodness someone had the good sense to tape it and post it for the world to see. When the image of Obama finally catches fire, the patrons can be heard whooping it up.
How many steps until we’ve got a mob? And is this simple stupidity, or outward (not so subtle) displays of racism?
