"Racist" Anti-Obama bumpersticker leads to arrest...

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/5904413.html

SUGAR LAND — In case their Plantation Bend neighbors had any questions about how Doug and Wendy McKain feel about Barack Obama, the bumper sticker on their pickup could be a clue.

But when Chynethia Gragg spotted the sticker — depicting someone urinating on the name "Obama" — Sugar Land police say, she stopped to express her disapproval, and that's when things got ugly.

Gragg, 35, has been charged with making a terroristic threat after confronting the McKains, telling them the sticker was racist, police said.

Gragg declined to comment, and her attorney, Roy Smith, said he would have to review the police report and talk with his client before commenting.

Doug McKain declined to comment.

According to court documents, police officer H. Norris went to the couple's house about 3 p.m. Tuesday to investigate a verbal disturbance.

Court documents said Gragg told Norris she saw the sticker on the back of a pickup and stopped in front of the McKain house. She told Norris she confronted McKain about the sticker, saying it was racist.

McKain told the officer he and his wife were driving home when they noticed a female motorist looking closely at his truck. The couple drove home then pulled into their driveway.

"Mr. McKain said shortly later the same person (Ms. Gragg) pulled up to his residence (blocking his driveway behind his truck.) Mr. McKain said Ms. Gragg began to rant and rave about the sticker on the back of his truck," the court document states.

McKain told police Gragg shouted numerous profanities at him and his wife.

"Mr. McKain said Ms. Gragg said she (would) get someone to take care of him later," the report said.

Gragg was issued a trespass warning and then arrested on the threat charge, a misdemeanor. She was released Wednesday from the Fort Bend County Jail on $500 bond.

Instead of my house, I would have let Chynethia follow me into a densely wooded area.

I'm really pretty surprised that no one has seen a bumper sticker with his likeness being hung from a tree. Seriously, there are some pretty radical rascists' out there. I can see this getting ugly, now that race has been brought out into the open.

I need some of these for Austin. Jesus Christ everyone here has an Obama sticker plastered on their car or bicycle, house, or both.
Actually, the last couple weeks I've really been wanting a Reagan/Bush sticker to go along with a new offroad exhaust setup.

Man, you are in the middle of a liberal hot-bed! I grew up there, and if you think it's bad now, you should have seen Austin in the '70's.

Liberal or not, i dont see how someone can vote for anyone who was just "recently proud" to be an American and wont put their hand over their heart during the National Anthem.

A vote for Obama will put that Nappy Headed Ho in the White House as well. If you don't think the Presidents wife has any affect on anything then I guess you weren't paying attention during the Clintons.

jesus, again. You're so blinded by racial hate you're ignoring what he said, and what I responded with. HE didn't say it, SHE did. If you don't think there's a difference, then discuss with the rest of your friends at the next Klan rally.


For the record, I don't support Obama in any way shape or form. In fact, I think he will be the final downfall of this country that is already failing miserably. I'm simply saying, if you're going to comment on the subject, at least make sure you have your facts straight. Otherwise, you look like an uneducated moron, or in your case, an uneducated biggot.

No shit. We already knew this dumbass. You need to go back to school and learn some manners boy.

BTW, it's not hatred. It's reality and pride. Both of which all other cultures accept and have. It's just white people of European descent in the US that are supposed to be without them right Mr. Sheeny? I've already discussed it with hundreds of people of all walks of life and have yet to speak with someone who can show/prove to me that the darkest skinned people provide anything truly beneficial back to society. Too bad you've got your cock up your ass too far to talk pansophically about race.

HAHAHAHAHA

That brings up a question : When did a noose become a "black" issue. It seems like every time it is mentioned it has some racial undertones. I think everyone knows that blacks were not the only people they have been used on, even in the US? What the hell?

I think it's more symbolism than anything. Like the rebel flag. They hung a shitload of rustlers, too.

You think that blacks contribute truly useful things to society?

I don't hate all of them.

Let's examine this one for a minute. This is interesting because here is a guy whose exact birthdate remains a mystery, yet he is credited with several agricultural inventions. What I also find interesting is that these inventions he is credited with along with other Tuskegee inventions were conveniently just after the Civil War. Thirdly, the Tuskegee Institute was actually funded and started thanks to white people.

Is it possible that our government used Carver and the Tuskegee Institute to put on a show so that it might bring the North and South a little more together following the Civil War? Our government would never do anything unethically or lie right? Also, what real scientific advances have blacks made following the Tuskegee Institute? You could write them on a BB with a Sharpie. Of course you get the people who say it is our fault and that we have held them back and that we owe them everything for what our ancestors did etc. That's when I point out that there are thousands of immigrants here from Africa. Most of which look down on the blacks that were born here. They haven't really made any beneficial advancements either. Not even after the huge deductions Joe Taxpayer takes off of their college bills.

Maybe we should consider rap music a true benefit to society? After all... it takes a lot of talent to stand with a mic and move those oversized lips.
