Norman, who began selling the shirts in late April, has said they are not meant to be racist. He said he thinks the Illinois senator and the character “look so much alike.”
“He can pretend he doesn’t understand what the message of that T-shirt is, but he knows full well that’s an offensive and demeaning stereotype used to insult African-Americans,” Nigut said. He called on citizens not to buy the T-shirts, but stopped short of calling for a boycott of Norman’s business or denying him to speak out.
This fool has the nerve to say it is not racist, they just look alike. Not surprised by this at all, I expect more racist antics in the near future.
