It’s a day ending in “y,” so get ready to feel guilty, everybody who isn’t black.

Missouri State Fair officials and politicians on Sunday condemned the performance of a rodeo clown who donned a mask resembling President Barack Obama during Saturday’s bull riding competition…
After hearing from reporters Sunday afternoon, fair organizers released a statement, which did not contest the details reported on social media.
“The performance by one of the rodeo clowns at Saturday’s event was inappropriate and disrespectful, and does not reflect the opinions or standards of the Missouri State Fair,” the statement read. “We strive to be a family friendly event and regret that Saturday’s rodeo badly missed that mark.”
This is indeed a disgrace. Since when is it okay to mock the President of the United States? This is America.

If you’re white, and particularly if you have a regional dialect that is not in favor among our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters, always remember: It’s Racist Because He’s Black.™
Update: Well, well, well. Look who else is now racist:
