Anti-Obama display in Indiana July 4th parade called racist


SHERIDAN, Ind. (AP) — Some local leaders say they are outraged by the inclusion of a golf cart depicting President Obama as a “lying African” going down a toilet in a small central Indiana town’s Independence Day parade.

Hamilton County commissioners Steve Dillinger and Mark Heirbrandt told the Indianapolis Star (http://indy.st/29kuUjD ) the golf cart that was part of the parade in the town of Sheridan was racist and an embarrassment. Sheridan is about 30 miles north of Indianapolis.

Don Christy of Sheridan said he drove the golf cart in the parade run by the local Lions Club but without officially entering it. Christy, 73, called himself a patriot and, while apologizing to anyone he offended, also complained about political correctness.

The cart also included a sign supporting Donald Trump for president.
