Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson and other civil rights leaders on Wednesday, October 10 demanded that the Romney Election Campaign Committee denounce the violently racist anti-Obama display of a watermelon and a hanging noose by prominent Romney supporter Blake la Beck on his Morgan Hill, California property. The display is not just an isolated example of one man’s bigotry but is prominently displayed near a public road and a Romney Campaign sign.
The display is seen daily by numbers of residents and passersby. It has been on display for several days with not a public word of condemnation by the GOP or Romney campaign officials.
“The blatantly racist anti-Obama display by an avowed Romney supporter sends a horrible message that racist attacks are not only openly displayed but tacitly condoned by many,” says Hutchinson, “The Romney Campaign’s silence on a display put up in his name sends the even more dangerous message that racist acts will not be condemned when done in support of Romney.”
