‘Disrespectful’ Parade Float Shows Obama, Clinton In Jail PHILLIP STUCKY

A float in the Texas Tri-State Parade created by the Confederate Riders of America portrayed President Barack Obama and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in a jail cell Monday.

The group asserts there was no racial meaning behind the float, but local black residents felt it was a step too far.

“A lot of people in the black and Hispanic community are saying, ‘why would you put a black man in a cage?'” Amarillo resident Rodney Darnes told local news station KXXV. “The fact that Hillary is in the float only sets the women’s movement further back.”

The float was officially created by a group called Stars and Bars, and was supported by the Confederate Riders of America. “It was in no way racist,” the President of the Confederate Riders of America Michael Bateman told reporters. “There was a sign right next to them that said ‘Hillary for prison, 2016. We had no racial intentions at all.”

Very fitting the two have destroyed this country and put us in grave danger in not doing anything with Isis and can't even admit it is Islamic Terror. Not to mention the e-mails that other countries have now with what was meant to be highly classified secret material.

What is sad is that anything that is ever done anymore black people have to go to the race issue. Doesn't matter there is a white woman in tthere too it is just plain 'Racist' that a black man is in a cage/jail. Oh my gosh! move on! I'm sure if the driver of the float was black, it would be racist because the man is making a black man do the work. It gets too too old. Please find something else to bitch about....

It's POLITICAL, and nothing racist about it. Go back to bed.
