"I didn't intend for it to be racist-oriented at all"

Illustration for article titled I didnt intend for it to be racist-oriented at all

This news story has been going around on my facebook feed all weekend. A BBQ place in my state had a lovely message on its sign on Friday:

"Obamacare America's Punishment for Slavery Years"

The owner says that the sign is criticizing the Affordable Care Act, not President Obama. The US has committed several atrocities over the years, so it must just be a REALLY big coincidence* that he mentioned slavery (and not, say, WWII internment camps) when the ACA is the signature achievement of our first black president.



*In case it is not evident, this is sarcasm.
