Angry Democrats in Nebraska said the Obama Outhouse float in the 4th of July parade may be racist.
CBS News reported:
A Fourth of July parade float in Nebraska that showed a dummy standing outside an outhouse labeled “Obama Presidential Library” is drawing cries of racism from local residents and the Nebraska Democratic Party.
The float, in the annual Independence Day parade in Norfolk, Neb., was affixed to trailer being towed behind a blue pickup truck. The dummy was clad in overalls, standing by a walker next to the outhouse.
The pickup truck and the float did not identify a sponsor, according to the Omaha World-Herald.
In a statement, the Nebraska Democratic Party called the float one of the “worst shows of racism and disrespect for the presidency that Nebraska has ever seen,” according to the World-Herald.
An Obama Presidential library outhouse was set up on a highway in New Mexico in 2012.
Barack Obama is the most unpopular president since World War II.
