Fairfield,OH--The ugly face of racism continues to spread. There is mistaken this one, the man who put this hateful display does not sugar coat anything. The man's name is Mike Lunsford, he spoke with local tv station WKRC-TV off camera only. His said his views could hurt his employers business ... but he says make no mistake: He doesn't want an African American running the country.
Lunsford says he believes Barack Obama is not a "full blooded American." And he says the United States is a white, Christian nation - and only with white Christians should be in power. With Lunsford not willing to share his views on-camera.
"What did you think when you first saw that?" Vickie Crowe/neighbor: "Well actually my 5 year old son says Obama's hanging upside down. He's what? He's hanging upside down. It's the neighbor's ghost. I took it as a little bit of a racist statement because my grandson's mixed and it hurt a little bit."
Mike Lunsford says he got the idea after an Obama supporter in New York put up this display of a Obama mannequin being chased by a figure of John McCain wearing Ku Klux Klan robes.
Another neighbor, Megan Sory says this symbol makes her more than uneasy it scares her. Megan Story/neighbor: "He's been a really nice neighbor but it's one of those you question and wonder, you know, if he's that forward about something will he be forward enough to do something else, too. it is scary at times but we live in a scary world."
Lunsford also says he's motivated by the national media which he says is pro-Obama.
All I can say to Mike is get use to it, Obama is here to stay. If you don't like you can move.
