McKinney TX Woman In Nice Neighborhood Obama Sign Defaced w/ NIGGER LOVER Message


Friday morning as I walked into my office I received a text message on my phone from a friend. She told me that she had a story that I must blog. I am having a busy week so I am a bit late. That said, the message is not too late to put out there.

My friend sent me the offensive photo here along with the Facebook name of the woman who this occurred to. She was adamant that I contact this woman. She told me in no uncertain terms that we simply should not let this incident go without as massive a coverage as we can provide.

I contacted the woman to get more information. Following is the response I got from her.

I live in a fairly nice neighborhood in McKinney Texas, where we pay through the nose for HOA dues. My next door neighbor rang my doorbell this morning and showed me my sign, which he had kindly removed from the ground. We have at least 4 African American families living on this street. I’m so offended, not just because whoever did this is ignorant and misinformed and trespassed and vandalized my sign, but infinitely more for my neighbors who might have driven by and seen it.

Thanks for blogging about it. I’m doing the same.

Cassy

I then contacted her about sending me the original picture without the offensive word blocked out. I think the constant political correctness of talking about the N-word as opposed to the word NIGGER as if we are children make us deal with these issues like high school children.

I also asked her for personal information she was willing to divulge about herself publicly. Following is the uncensored photograph.

Cassy is a 34 year old white business owner. Her husband is a financial analyst that works in corporate finance. I asked her why she supported President Obama and she said:

I support the President because he believes in all people, he prefers diplomacy to bombs, and he is part of the party of inclusion, not exclusion. I support him because he believes that food and medicine for our kids shouldn’t be put on the table for cuts before tax breaks for big corporations. I support him because he supports my right to determine what I do with my body and what my daughter someday chooses to do with hers.

I also keep a blog at Blue Chick in a Red Barn. I’ve written two blog posts about why I’m voting blue (supporting the president) this year.

    Inasmuch as I was saddened by this type of racism in 2012, I understand that America is changing extremely fast. Hateful racist of all races are becoming the new minority and they are lashing out. We must expose them to the light as well as engage them firstly to give them the opportunity to join a society where we all are happy to coexist. Absent that, we just ensure that they are labeled with the scarlet letter for all to see.

  1. I live here in McKinney, Texas (technically Fairview, which is part of McKinney). I am totally disgusted by this. As a lifelong conservative (and now recent liberal), I cannot even begin to understand what kind of repugnant, reprehensible ignorance this/these perpetrator/s led them to this kind of disgusting behavior and rhetoric. I am ashamed to live in Collin County. It has always been an affluent, conservative, suburban county outside of Dallas, but this is the worst and most vile kind of offensive thought, speech, and vandalism.

  2. Republicans have no idea how much they would hate the nation they are trying to create.

  3. Good grief. Well – let’s just make sure President Obama is re-elected! Debate watching party at The Pub in McKinney on Wednesday. See you there!

  4. I will bet money the owner of this sign did this herself to bring attention. This has been done before.

    • Jonathan, What odds will you give me because I’ll take that bet. I have been verbally assaulted on the DART Rail because of my Obama Buttons’ T-Shirt. I’ve lived in Allen, lived and worked in Plano, grew up in Garland went to school Richardson 5-12 + Richland DCCC.

      I expect you believed and likely still do that Travon Martin was the assailant, despite DNA evidence that EXCLUDES Travon from Zimmerman’s claims that that teen even touched the holster much less the gun.

      Living in Allen I found a lot of bigots and bully’s, seems to be the Collin County mantra raise another generation of ignorant hicks.

  5. The truth is people in McKinney aren’t going to do a thing about it. I grew up in McKinney and have seen the hatred walking the streets of highway 5 (McDonald) and downtown McKinney. Have you ever wondered why you don’t see Black people in downtown McKinney? If you just happen to find a Black person patronizing the shops they’re not originally from here.

  6. Perhaps, the neighbor who removed the sign is the one who defaced it; and he is the one who did it and wished to cover his tracks.
