An anti-Obama bumper sticker emblazoned with the expression “Don’t Re-Nig In 2012” went viral on Friday, outraging many people on social media and offline who viewed it as a particularly egregious racist attack against the president.
Huffington Post’s Gene Demby determined the origin of the sticker to be Stumpy’s Stickers, which sold other similarly offensive imagery, perhaps most notably a graphic of a chimp, next to “Obama 2012.” Before the site went offline Friday, the design was available for purchase in 10” by 3” squares for $4.99 each. WFAA-TV’s Byron Harris investigated further and determined the business to be based in Camp, Arkansas despite Arkansas corporate records not showing information for the company. The StumpysStickers.com domain name was “registered to a firm in Bellevue, Washington, which provides the service.”
